When will I know if I was successful? What’s the timescale involved?

I applied to Nuclear Recruiters, Inc. before and was unsuccessful. Can I reapply?
Yes, although for some roles you may only reapply after six months have passed since your original application. You will have to complete a new application form and re-upload your CV. This will be highlighted in the description of the role.
Why do my applications keep getting rejected?
It is difficult to answer this question without more specific information about your particular application and the role you were interested in. However there are some key questions you can ask yourself when applying for a position:

  • Do you meet all the required experience for the role? Have you demonstrated that experience within your CV or application?
  • Have you highlighted your transferable skills? i.e. If a role requires extensive experience of working in teams, have you highlighted your teamwork experiences to demonstrate this? Remember that non-paid experience can be very valuable as well as part-time work.
  • Have you sufficiently researched the role, department and company and demonstrated this in your application? This can really make or break an application as it demonstrates your level of motivation and commitment for this role and the company.
  • For more advice on completing your application please see our Tips and advice page.

How can I improve my chances of being considered for a job?
In addition to the advice provided in response to the previous question, we stress the importance of tailoring your CV specifically to the role you are applying for. Analyze the information provided within the job advert or job description and show within your CV or application how your skills and experience match up to these. This will make it easy for the person reviewing your CV to see that you have the relevant skills and experience, making you a candidate worth considering for the role. Without these clear signposts, your CV will be immediately eliminated.
A good tip is to ask a friend to read the job description and your CV to provide an objective view.
