    I have been applying for finance jobs since March covid started and it has been extremely difficult.
    Most times my CV is rejected upon application. I am not sure what I am doing wrong.
    The jobs I was able to get were below what I should be paid for my qualification.
    Any advise will be helpful

    Do you have any work experience as you mention that the jobs you were getting are below your qualifications?

    I would recommend tailoring your cover letter and cv to the specific jobs you are going for. There are loads of jobs going in finance, hope you catch a break, good luck

    Just refreshing this thread rather than starting a new one...
    In my case I'm working in industry for over 10 years now, I'm degree qualified in environmental science and nearing the end of a distance learning postgraduate diploma.. Applied for an environmental management job lately in my locality which I would have expected to get an interview at least... Its hard to know if in the eyes of recruiters my work experience has pigeonholed me or I'm overqualified for what I'm applying for... Recruiters wont seem to give any feedback good or bad..
