I m doing something wrong. I never had like more than 10 interviews for any job ever. Are you applying to other fields or what are you doing?


CounterStreet t1_ixa5dzh wrote

68 interviews in 24 days?? Holy crap, how did you keep it all straight? I haven't had to look for a new job in 7 years, is this usual now?


somewhat_irrelevant t1_ixc22tw wrote

I was also confused about that... Also, they don't interview that many people for most jobs, so that's a low offer rate. Could be the industry, but I think most of those are probably phone screens.

Nice chart, but there are some things that could be better:

  1. Same color for same categories on both side

  2. Same scale for the number of applocation on both side

  3. Same order of categories for both sides

Whenever I see a snakey with 100+ application I wonder what the fuck are people on here doing, honestly, I work in a STEM field, and have friends in other fields, and nobody needed more than 10 application to find a job, many of them find work on the first or second try.

I also would not reply if I get spammed with an application and yes 10+ application per day would be spam imo.

Are you me? I need to be better organized but if I were to throw up my numbers from my two searches they would be almost identical (with slightly different months span and month start).

It seems in STEAM all you just need is that one first job to kick your butt and career into gear.

While you submitted more applications the second time around you got more reciprocal which as a Data Scientist I could surmise that the difference could be more you too. You knew more how to target successful applications.

I've never seen the acronym written as STEAM, is the 'A' for architecture?


snackexchanger t1_ixba4fz wrote

It is the dumbest acronym. The A stands for Art. The entire point of STEM was that it wasnt art. STEAM is basically just everything


dlegofan t1_ixd8vbt wrote

I've seen SHTEAM, with history added in. At that point, it's just school.

The first 10 google google results (the entire first page) for "what does steam stand for" all agree that it is art. I have never heard anyone refer to the "a" as being for agriculture so I am interested where you heard that it does

Oh no!! There’s a guy in a professional group that calls it STEAM not STEM and I let it infect me.

No! No! I really meant STEM. I don’t know what the A stands for.

You mean response or answers?


>as a Data Scientist I could surmise that the difference could be more you too. You knew more how to target successful applications.

as a dAtA sCiEnTiSt you should also know that a 1.18% success rate in a job search is still hot garbage even when their success rate more than doubled the base of 0.53%.

Maybe things are different in different places, but I'd be redirecting my energies based on this graph. If you apply for 253 jobs over 172 days (and presumably this was not spread evenly) then that's more than 1 application a day. It takes me at least a day to write a high-quality introduction letter or statement for an application form that's tailored to the person specification for a particular job (that's what people look for in my experience, and I've been on interview panels before). In other words: go for quality not quantity. But it's a good point about experience - once you've got a year or more things do get easier!

What is the name of this type of chart? What tools do you use to create it? Also, congrats on the job!


wallstreetoni69 t1_ixammgl wrote

Very cool job! What platform do you do your graphics on?


Spirited_Education_3 t1_ixcrkea wrote

I like the visual. I’ve been meaning to learn how to do this. Congrats on the job offer


WOD_are_you_doing t1_ixdo3o0 wrote

Graduating in the STEM field - I had very similar experiences my first couple years out of college. The reason being is that you’re unproven. Now that a few years have passed, I’ve literally received an offer from every company I’ve interviewed with. Applying is now a formality for me. Keep it up and keep pushing.

I don 't know why people post things like this up other than for the sake of narcissism.

I found it quite interesting too and I didn't feel any narcissism from the OP

not really, not if you're honest.

In what way is this narcissistic? They clearly put out a ton of applications and took a ton of interviews that went nowhere.

Projection much?

ikr? Narcissists tend to not like to admit that they've had failures.


CrimsonPromise t1_ixc114a wrote

Because it's interesting, especially if you're a jobseeker. Like when I was a fresh grad and getting ghosted or no replies with my applications, I would have loved to have seen something like this to know that it happens to everyone and it's not uncommon to send out hundreds of applications and only hear back from 5 companies.
