Help! I am not getting any responses from employers

With a few exceptions, employers will not contact you unless they want to schedule an interview.  Very few employers will even acknowledge the acceptance of a resume.

Apply for jobs that match your skills and experience: If you are getting absolutely no nibbles on your resume we have a few pieces of advice.  Only apply for jobs that you are qualified for. If your experience does not match what the employer requires in the posting, these days especially, you will be wasting your time applying for jobs that are above your experience level.  The job market the way it is, employers are getting the pick of the litter so to speak and people that are do not meet the minimum qualifications will not get any consideration.

Retool your resume:If you are applying for jobs that match your experience and you are not having success, a good long look at the resume is in order.  We recommend that you get 3 working professionals to give you feedback on your resume. Relatives and friends aren't always the best critics as they know you and may not give you the tough love that your resume needs.  Find someone that will judge your resume at face value.  In our experience, a solid resume with skills and a work history to back it will always get the attention of an employer.
 
We are also happy to take a look at your resume.
