People in Liverpool are frustrated with the process of applying for jobs

More than two-thirds of jobhunters in Liverpool are fed up with the process of looking for work, a new survey reveals.

The study by independent job site, CV-Library, shows 67.4% of people seeking new employment in the city are frustrated with the process.

And the top ten things they hate the most, are:

  1. Lack of response from recruiters (71%
  2. Tailoring their CV and cover letter for different roles (48.4%)
  3. Long application processes (35.5%)
  4. Finding a role in their local area (29%)
  5. Vague updates from the recruiter (19.4%)
  6. Being turned down at the final stage (19.4%)
  7. Being hassled by recruiters (6.5%)
  8. Vague updates from the recruiter (6.5%)
  9. Finding a role that meets their needs (3.2%)
  10. Having to attend interviews (3.2%)

Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, said: “Looking for work can be extremely stressful, especially if you don’t have enough time to fill in application forms and update your CV.

“Worse still, a lack of relevant positions, low response rates to applications and being turned down at the last minute can really knock your confidence and leave you feeling like you’ve hit a dead end.

“Some of the taboos outlined in our research are unfortunately part and parcel of looking for work and simply can’t be avoided.

“Setting aside dedicated time to look for work will help to ease some of the pressures and often, exploring different avenues at once, can pay off.

“It’s important to be patient in your job hunt and remember that it can take time – but it should be worth it in the long run once you’ve found your dream job.”
