I am not a newbie on the SAP job market. I was looking for job myself, and I was helping my friends to have a job.

I sent my CV to many recruiters, both agencies and in-house.

The feedback I received from them is just priceless. Let me list some of the favourites here…

1. Lack of any feedback

Yes, that is number one. You are lucky if 1 out of 100 recruiters would give you any feedback. The rest 99% emails will get no response at all.
To be honest, about 5 of those recruiters will come back to you by phone or by email with some additional questions and conversations, but after 1-2 contacts they disappear. They don’t even bother responding the chase letters.
You know, they have hundreds of candidates and tens of positions to fill, there’s no point in giving feedback to every person who applied.

2. Other candidates more closely fit the requirements

This is usually the full contents of the email, bar a greeting and a signature. That is a very (very-very) helpful answer, because it clearly shows you your place on Earth. It also tells you exactly where you need to improve your skills to fit that vacancy.

3. You do not have necessary consultancy skills

After many years in SAP world, both on consultancy and end-user sides? Yes, my recent experience (at the time of interview) was on the end-user side. But that was a team who dealt with implementation and roll-out of functionality to new businesses within the company. I was on several consulting roles before that. Of course, the recruiters know better, don’t they?

Thanks for your in-depth looking into my skillset, my recruiter friends.

What are you favourite responses?
