The Five Biggest Mistakes People Make Applying For Jobs

A new survey found the top five mistakes people make when they apply for jobs, and all of them seem like they’d be pretty easy to fix.  Check ’em out:

 

 

1.  84% of people don’t find out the name of the person doing the hiring and personalize their email to them.

 

 

2.  57% don’t send a thank you note after an interview, not even an email.

 

 

3.  54% don’t customize their resume based on the job they’re applying for.

 

 

4.  45% don’t include a cover letter.

 

 

5.  And 37% don’t follow up after they send in their application, which would help them stand out.
