College Grad Gets 1.5 Million LinkedIn Views and 0 Jobs

College Grad Gets 1.5 Million LinkedIn Views and 0 JobsA recent college grad received more than a million hits to his LinkedIn page… but that might not help him get a job.

A few months ago Zach Bragg posted his resume on the social media site LinkedIn hoping to get a job. His resume went viral and Zach was left sifting through eight thousand comments and one point four million views. Despite that he only had forty calls with recruiters and fifteen interviews.

So what happened between everyone seeing his page and only a few people reaching out? According to Ladders.com, Zach’s story is a common one; so what needs to change?

Like Zach, people think the more jobs they apply for the more likely they are to land one. Often they end up in a pile of resumes that won’t be seen.

Instead you should research the jobs you’re interested in and make an effort to reach a real person. For more problems in the area of job applications and how to change it, check out the original article now.

Make the hunt a little easier.
