Interested? Apply Now.

This happens quite a lot, you see an interesting job opening and you want to apply but you have several obstacles in your way. Oh it’s midterm week, you have social events to attend to or….. you figured, that you wait until the due date since you have another two weeks before you get started on your job application materials.

So you wait and wait until two weeks later, you log online to Babson Career Connections to apply for the job but then all of a sudden, you can’t seem to find the job anymore. Where is it, where is the active link and why can’t you apply for it? Panic starts to set in and you immediately email the career advisor about it.

Does this sound familiar? Has it happened to you? Well, here’s what happened on the recruiter’s side. The recruiter might have pulled the job down because they got an influx of interested candidates who applied early and in that time, the recruiter saw a resume they liked and didn’t feel the need to keep the job open anymore.

Bottom line, don’t wait.. if you’re interested, apply as soon as you can!
