Candidates wade through a bureaucratic employment portal that requires a login, a resume upload, and redundant manual entry of the same data already found on the CV. Often, these portals have technical problems that cause hiccups in the application process. If you do make it through, the automated system may discard you immediately because you don’t have enough keywords to fit the job.

This is exactly why 60% of applicants abandon their applications. The modern labor market is impatient with the time and energy it takes to apply online, and most often – or never – hear anything back at all.
