After another 3 days, I sent them invites on LinkedIn. Additionally, I have contacted 1 alternative decision maker. The result: silence”. Career Consultants are often approached by frustrated candidates who are unaware of what they are doing wrong and why their search is unsuccessful.

What are your strengths from the employer’s point of view?
