I have been applying to several jobs via an application tracking system (ie Jobvite, directly from the employer's website, where I upload a tailored resume and cover letter for each position). I have an account with about 10 applications, most of which have not responded, and about three of which are labeled "rejected". I showed this to my friend, who recommended that I create a new account using a new email because recruiters can check one's profile and reject applicants who have lots of rejections.
So, I wonder if I should create a new account to start with a "fresh" history?
I am applying to software engineering/developer jobs after a career change, so I am trying to get an entry-level job. I have not been successful as I have minimal relevant experience, although I am constantly improving my abilities. I would prefer to be as genuine as possible, although I question the judgments a recruiter would make based on the status of my applications over the last three months.
