I applied for 3-5 times. My profile is a match to the job requirement. But I get my application always gets rejected. Seriously, what's going on?

All I ask is one interview opportunity! But it seems the recruiters at Square sees it like too much to offer for an interview request . If you reject an application, give me a valid reason.

Not only Square for that matter - I wonder when a recruiter rejects an application of a candidate, do they really empathize to see what goes on in the mind of a candidate? I guess NO.

    Yikes. Looks like we dodged a bullet.

    Why does everyone feel entitled to a reason for a rejection, let alone one that you consider ‘valid’? They aren’t interested in you and they don’t owe you a damn thing. This also applies to hitting on people at the bar, in case any of you clueless babies missed the parallel.

      You can't compare this to hitting someone at a bar!

      Something tells me you handle that rejection terribly too.

      United, sorry you got triggered. But don't project your issues on to others.
      Job applications are different. An open job req is a company asking you to go out of your way, spend your time and apply to that position.

      I don’t have issues. I’m happily married and employed and trying to pass a little wisdom on to this entitled kid. I like how you both only criticize the metaphor and nothing about the main point of the post.

    No one is ever going to give you a reason. They're just not interested, time to move on.

    In the case of Square, you need to swipe harder 🤪

    Square’s recruiting team has always been garbage though. Fake and the turnover in the past 1-3 years has been quite astounding.

      Garbage? We've grown an incredible amount with a small team.

      Actually one of the happiest teams at SQ according to Pulse and turnover has been astonishing low 😃

    Are you actually hearing from a recruiter, or are you getting a generic email saying they decided to not move forward with your application?

    If you're actually talking to a recruiter then they'll usually (but not always) give you some reason. I'm speaking generally, I don't know about Square specifically.

    If you're getting an automated generic response then your application probably isn't being noticed by humans. It might not even be getting to one. If that's the case then you might try talking to a resume writing company. Something as simple as formatting and keywords can make your resume pass the keyword scanners and stand out to a human.

    Not exactly related but:
    I had a recruiter from Square asking about what I liked about the company. I just said I care for the role and that’s what really interested me. Got shut off badly. The only time I got shunned at the sourcer stage itself. Seems like they do their job well.

    Yep, getting even a screening interview at square is pretty hard.
