When applying for jobs through a web portal, how important is it to fill out all of the non required form fields (job history, skills, etc)? It seems so unnecessary given the resume covers all of that. Does leaving those blank put me at a disadvantage?

I’ve gone through a handful of interviews with different companies, and typically make it to the final round.

I get ghosted whenever I ask for constructive feedback on how to improve. What am I doing wrong here?
