Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discusses another way job hunters sabotage their job search.

I find it incredible that people take so much time to write resumes and find jobs to apply to. Although applying for jobs not the ideal way to find the job, is a path a lot of people take. That isn't the way that you're sabotaging your search. Here is how you are doing.

Again, you write a resume, you look for places that are positions for you, you send the resume out, you get a phone call and you never call back! It is incredible somebody how often I make a call to someone after receiving a resume or send an email to someone with a few questions and I get no response. Help me understand how that makes sense.

At the end of the day, you are trying to find work. You found the position that you think your background fits, you submit a resume and you don't respond.

That is another way to sabotage your job search.
