You are up against a smaller pool of applicants

On an industry-specific job board, job seekers are only up against each other. This makes it vastly different from Indeed, ZipRecruiter and LinkedIn where jobs from every industry are posted. The result is that hundreds of unqualified applicants apply. Even if you are very qualified, the likelihood of being seen is drastically reduced due to the recruiters inability to analyze everyone. Don’t become a number. Make sure your credentials are getting attention.
