    Why You Should Apply Through a Company’s Career Page, with Sabrina Pomar

    Why You Should Apply Through a Company’s Career Page, with Sabrina Pomar

    It’s so easy to use LinkedIn’s quick apply, isn’t it? No more spending hours filling out applications. But those quick apply links might be hurting your chances of getting the job, says Find Your Dream Job guest Sabrina Pomar. Using quick apply submits your resume, whereas a company’s career page allows you to submit a complete application. It also allows you to learn more about the company, says Sabrina, so that you gain clarity on their mission and needs, which is crucial to your job search because it allows you to form questions that show your interest in working there and what you can offer.

    Sabrina Pomar is the talent sourcing specialist at the Cascade AIDS Project.
