Sometimes, companies publish vacancies just for formalities.

Often time, they need an interior candidate in mind to fill the position.

So, when you apply for a job and the employer didn’t get back to you, one of the following factors is probably responsible for it.

Jobs are filled via networking.

Discrimination exists

There’s a little question concerning this, even when employers try to downplay it.
In Nigeria, the HND-BSc certificate continues to be a difficulty.
This is a style of discrimination that’s supported the sort of degree you’re presenting for an employment application.

Most CVs go to the trash can unread

See, here’s the truth. Some employers don’t have the time to look at every job application they receive. And in a country like Nigeria, where the unemployment rate is high like a mountain, an employer may receive one thousand applications for just one opening.

If an organization assigns only 1 person to kind the applications, some would have to be ignored except the company uses Application Tracking Systems (ATS), even with that, the hiring
the manager would positively ignore different CVs and dump them within the ash-bin once he/she finds some candidates with spectacular CVs.

However, if the accomplishment is conducted before the closedown, the hiring manager in an exceedingly bid to guard the image of the corporate will not feel duty-bound to inform you concerning the impending layoff.
