I have applied to more than 100 video production positions at USAjobs.
I have 20+ years of video experience, EMMY awards, 9 years of video management, I judge national video production competitions, I write articles for a national magazine on video production, I write my own blog on technology and I volunteer my time as an internet expert on video production.
But- I constantly get letters back a few weeks after applying saying I'm either not qualified or I'm eligible, but I was not referred to the selecting official. I think with all of the qualifications I just listed above, it's fair to say that I'm extremely qualified for a video production position.
I am NOT a veteran (I failed the physical due to a childhood injury, but am not disabled).
The only reasons I can think of as to why I'm not selected to move farther in the process is either because of moving expenses or because I'm not a veteran.
What can I do to get noticed and hired?
