How to Apply for Software Jobs and Get an Interview

The job market can be difficult to navigate especially if you really need a job right now. The good news is that there are plenty of software jobs in Denver and other areas of the country. However, you have to know how to apply for the job in order to get called in for an interview. Fortunately, if you answer every question on the application, write an enticing cover letter, proofread every word you write, and apply for the right jobs, your chances for getting a call for an interview are much improved!

Answer Every Question

Big companies are notorious for requesting long application forms from prospective employees. If you're applying for more than 1 or 2 jobs a day, that can be very intimidating. In addition to that, you already have all of that information listed on your resume. So the easy answer might be to skip a few questions or keep your answers brief and vague.

That's a big mistake. And here is why: most applications are run through a computer program first. This means the employer is looking for a match in certain areas. For example, if they require 3 years of experience in Java Development, the computer will weed out any applicant who has less than that.

Therefore, being too lazy to fill out your entire employment history may have just cost you the opportunity of an interview. Was it really worth saving an extra 15 minutes on filling out the form? Probably not.

Write an Enticing Cover Letter

Most employers use the cover letter to decide whether it's worth their time to read your resume. Your cover letter is basically your sales pitch to the prospective employer. Therefore, you should carefully consider what you will put on it. Here are some mistakes to avoid on your cover letter:

• Using the wrong company's name • Talking about what you can't do • Summarizing your resume • Including personal information (age, family status, etc.) • Bad-mouthing your last boss

So what should you put in your cover letter? Your cover letter should be used to tell a prospective employee what you have to offer them. You can use previous experience and your qualifications to explain what you can do for the company. Most importantly, you need to keep the tone professional.

Proofread Every Word

Your employer knows that you're not applying to be a writer. Nevertheless, they expect you to make a genuine effort to apply for the position. That means you should have a resume and cover letter without spelling errors. It's also important to get the tone right. Your cover letter shouldn't sound demanding or needy. Instead, you need to keep it professional.

If you're having a hard time finding a job, then you might want to consider hiring an expert to help you write your resume and cover letter. At the very least, you should ask a friend to proofread your application for you.

Apply for the Right Jobs

If you've been building websites with HTML and CSS, then you don't have the qualifications or experience to develop software in other programming languages. HR personnel and the hiring managers may not know as much about software programming as you do, but the company will spot a fraud sooner or later.

Long story short, in order to get hired and keep a good job, you should apply for one that you're well suited for. There's nothing wrong with moving up the ladder and stretching your limits, but you should be honest about what you can and can't do for the company. There you have it. Now you're ready to apply for more software jobs in Denver. Good luck!
