Mistakes to Avoid When Applying for a Job

You are reading this blog because we want to improve your chances of getting a job with us. 

We are hiring like crazy because we are fortunate to have many clients and partners.

I’m going to tell you about some mistakes people make when applying.

If you can avoid these three mistakes and follow the instructions, there is a good likelihood that you are going to be way ahead of anyone who is applying for a particular position.

Mistake Number 1

Make sure you spend a little time, personalize your message, and say something particular about what you learned.

Show that you stand out, which puts you ahead of 95% of other candidates.

The first mistake is they reach out to other folks in the team or me with zero preparation.

Do not send a canned message that says, “Dear Sir,” and then it just has stuff that you didn’t put anytime to research on what our company does.

If you haven’t seen tons of projects we have, then you’re going to look like the thousands of other people just blasting their resumes out.

Mistake Number 2

Watch out for grammatical errors and other kinds of mistakes.

We are looking at your ability to communicate if you have capitalization and punctuation errors, it hurts your chances.

Even if English is not your first language, that’s okay. We have a lot of folks in the Philippines, Brazil, Pakistan, and other places.

But you have to show that you can communicate very clearly. It doesn’t mean you have to be a writer or to be able to write a book. Avoid things that have grammatical mistakes.

Mistake Number 3

Follow-up: If you want to know what you can do, you must follow the instructions closely.

The instructions for any particular job will be something like sending a note to Juan, making a one-minute video and posting it on LinkedIn, or sending something with a subject line with a keyword.

Please pay attention to the details, as we constantly test your ability to follow directions.

This mocks out many candidates because they cannot pay attention to the details.

It would be best if you worked closely with other team members when working on a team in different groups. 

If you come to me every time, it shows you cannot work in a team. That doesn’t mean I do not want to hear from you.

Mistake
Me sharing guidelines on “Mistakes to avoid when applying for a job.”

But if you can imagine the guy Jim who started Cosco, if everyone went to CEO of Cosco across all the different stores of Cosco, they would never get anything done because they would just be creating chaos.

You must learn to follow directions and know who to contact for whom.

It could be another team member. It could be someone who is in a particular group.

There are always some instructions, and you have to demonstrate that you can figure out who is the right person to contact or be able to solve the problem for yourself or go to the training.

Certainly, reach out when it is a question that does deserve clarification that you need.

But remember if you are implying that the team is evaluating your ability to follow directions. The question you ask tells us your comprehension and how well you understand.

Maybe you want to be a project manager, have 20 years of experience running an agency, and want to work with us. That’s great too.

Engage and Show your Expertise

I can tell you if it’s working for me; I will first see whether you engage with our content and whether you have the expertise.

I will look you up and determine the best use of your time and my time.

There is so much opportunity in our mission to create a million jobs, and I’m happy that we have friends like john Jonas and job.ph our friends with Fiverr, Nelson, who got a bunch of 7 figure agencies in his group, so he’s helping agency scale.

If you are an agency owner reading this for fun, great! We would love to see you hire people; the people coming to our program are not for us. It’s for all of us.

We want to create jobs together based on clear, fair instructions, anyone who can qualify, anyone who can get these things done, doesn’t matter where in the plant, doesn’t matter if they are a single mom, doesn’t matter if you are broke if you can get the job done. We want to hire you.

So, I hope that is encouraging for you, and I hope that you can step ahead and be ahead of most of the people who make mistakes when applying for jobs, whether for us or somebody else.

Looking forward to seeing your progress, and if by some chance you don’t hear from us or you get declined, maybe you are not ready. 

You can always try again. We believe people can constantly improve and accelerate their learning.

And we are a team that comes from making many mistakes we have seen in the last 20+ years of hiring.

Go check it out, and I can’t wait to see your progress along the way.

I, Dennis Yu the CEO of BlitzMetrics.com am offering job opportunities for many countries who want to work remotely. I want to tell you about some mistakes people make when they apply for jobs.  We are hiring like crazy because we are so fortunate to have so many clients and partners.

Mistake # 1 Reaching out to CEO

The first mistake is that applicants straightly reach out to me and another team member with zero preparation. If you send a message and Say, dear sir, “please hire me” it just has stuff that shows you did not research what our company does. 

It shows you are not following us on social media, this is the reason why you are doing the same as the thousands of other people who are just blasting their resumes out. We have proper system through which we are hiring, so follow the instructions.

Mistake # 2 Not Sending a Personalize message

Make sure you personalize your message and say something specific about what you have learned, which stands out and makes you ahead of 95% of the other candidates. You’ve got to learn to follow directions and know who to contact other team members. It could be someone who’s in a particular group.

There are always some instructions. And you want to demonstrate that you can figure out who is the right person to contact or be able to solve problems for yourself or go through the training.

Mistake # 3 Not checking your message for grammatical errors

Always pay attention to grammatical errors and other kinds of mistakes. We are looking at your ability to communicate. You have errors in there and capitalization and punctuation, so it will hurt your chances. If English is not your first language, then it’s okay, we have a lot of folks in the Philippines, Pakistan, Brazil, and other places. 

You have to show that you can communicate clearly, that does not mean you have to be a writer, or you have to be able to write books or things like that, but avoid things that are sloppy or have grammatical errors. Follow-up shows how much potential you have when you want to know how you are doing.

You want to be sure you are paying close attention to the instructions for any particular job that is assigned. Like, as sending a note to Juan, making a one-minute video and posting it on LinkedIn, or sending something with a subject line. To show your presence comment on the posts positively.

Good luck. There is so much opportunity. I would love to find some way to be able to create a million jobs, which is our mission.

Delighted to onboard everyone

And the people that come through our program, it is not just for us. It’s for all of us. So we want to create jobs together based on clear, fair instructions that anyone who can qualify.

When you have the opportunity, jump on it!

When you have the opportunity, jump on it!

But…..

Make sure it honors those who brought you, since we are only as good as our people.

Create as much value as you can for your partners, before they even think to ask— or worse, before they need to remind you.

Everything good I’ve ever gotten has been because people opened doors for me.

I’ve blown so many opportunities— because I was too eager to promote myself, unknowingly creating distractions instead of helping.

When your mentors and partners clearly see that you’ve got their interests in mind, that you’re a reliable go-getter, more doors will keep opening.

So here’s the big “secret” that took me years to discover the hard way…

When you have gratitude in all you do, instantly your fear and self-righteousness disappear— and the amazing people and things in front of you reveal themselves to have been in front of you all along.

Hold me accountable to recognizing the incredible people I get to spend time with.

A team on a shared mission.

It’s not because I’m “awesome” in any way, but because of the people around me working hard and opening doors.

How do you handle pain?

Some people escape to drugs, alcohol, TV, or lethargy.

My escape is work, a socially acceptable addiction, but unhealthy, nonetheless.

The silver lining is that the last 20 years of my life have been extremely productive.

And I consider how the famous painters, musicians, authors, inventors, and entrepreneurs have channeled pain into productivity.

Lemonade from lemons.

People wonder if I get tired working or if working so hard will hurt me.

But the reality is I work to escape pain- to hide from it instead of deal with it. It’s not the work that’s hurting me.

Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right?

Or failure is the best teacher.
Which makes me her familiar student.

I believe anyone who is truly successful will admit to you they had a great deal of pain along the way, no matter how well they hide it.

Building muscle requires that you tear your muscle fibers to then regrow stronger.

Embrace your pain and your flaws, since you are wonderfully and fearfully made.

You are right where you need to be.
