Companies have become more organized than ever, every company has an HR Department who works to decide the role of a certain position and unless and until it’s 90% match, you will not be hired.
If you are applying through an agency, you can request them about the Job description. When you apply for the position that matches your profile almost exactly, you have higher chances of getting shortlisted and getting hired by the company later.
Many candidates apply for anonymous positions regularly without reading the Job description or other details and keep waiting to hear from the recruitment companies or through the portals they have applied. Applying for unsuitable jobs may end up getting your precious CV in the Junk. ( it may seem harsh but it is a bitter truth)
When you apply for jobs, make sure you don’t avoid the Nationality barrier, the Job Board you saw the ad on and the Consultant won't be able to help you if the position has been generated by the company.
An IT Engineer who worked for numerous numbers of years is now looking for a change and is considering moving anywhere, regardless of industry or location. But please keep in mind, if a hotel in looking for an IT Manager, they would only need a person who has worked in the hotels before and knows how the hotel IT works.
If a person works in the financial sector and wants to apply for a new position, make sure you are applying in the same sector and for the same role, the company is looking for.
