Searching for the right job can be a daunting task, especially when you're facing a sea of job posts with hundreds of applicants. But fear not, because at Ada Meher, we understand your frustrations, and we're here to provide you with insightful and trustworthy advice which can help you make informed decisions with your next move.

Let's face it - job posts on LinkedIn and other platforms can be misleading. While it may seem like there are hundreds of qualified applicants vying for the same role as you, the truth is that only a small percentage of these applicants are suitable. In fact, from our experience, only 10-15% of LinkedIn applicants meet the requirements for the role. And for posts with 200+ applicants? The percentage is even lower.

“Why?" you may ask. The truth is that many job posts receive a high volume of unsuitable applicants. This can include candidates who require sponsorship, are underqualified, or are from the wrong sector or location. In addition, the "quick apply" feature on some job posts can also lead to a flood of unqualified candidates.

So, what does this mean for you, the qualified candidate? It means that you have a much better chance of standing out than you may think! If you meet 70-75% of the job requirements, you should hit the apply button despite the number of competitions. Remember, employers are ultimately looking for the right fit for their team, and if you can showcase your skills, experience, and personality fit, you might just be that standout candidate they've been looking for all this time.

At Ada Meher, we're here to provide you with the guidance and encouragement you need to succeed in your job search. We know that job searching can be a rollercoaster of emotions - excitement, frustration, and everything in between. That's why we're here to offer you our expertise and insights, to help you navigate the ups and downs with confidence.

So, don't be disheartened by the number of applicants on job posts - instead, be empowered by the fact that you have the skills and experience to stand out. And if you need help along the way, Ada Meher is here for you, as we are committed to helping qualified candidates find their perfect role.
