Quality Versus Quantity

One of my coachees/students decides to apply for jobs in which he has no industry background and no related experiences.

๐ŸŒŸ He applied to around 20 job vacancies.

๐ŸŒŸ He got invited to 10+ 1st round interviews.

๐Ÿ™Œ He got 6 offers.

๐Ÿ™Œ And all of these happened in LESS than 2 months!

Quality over Quantity!

This is one of the first tips I always share with job seekers who want to land their dream job in the Netherlands.

I heard so many job seekers say that they applied for 100+, 200+, or even 500+ jobs in a short period.

Some even think "the more the better".

But, is that true?

Think differently, what if you go for Quality over Quantity?

โœ… You will have much more time and effort to understand what the employer wants from you in job vacancies.

โœ… You will better show yourself to the employer that you are the right candidate through a thoughtful CV & Cover Letter.

โœ… You will receive much fewer rejection letters which drain your energy and hurt your self-confidence.

Maybe you want to know how good is the "Quality" of your job application.

Here is an easy equation:

- how many 1st round interviews you got / how many job vacancies you applied

If the number you have is below 20%, then it's time to focus on QUALITY instead of quantity.
