Why Did Your Last Interview Fail?

By: pmegan
It's no secret that interviews are hard to come by. So when one doesn't work out it can seem like a crushing defeat.

Some interviews are just screening interviews . . . Q and A sessions . . . where you're expected to jump through certain hoops to make sure you have the basic qualifications. These interviews are usually conducted by personnel staff or lower level management assistants. Here you have to articulately represent yourself and answer all the questions with enthusiasm.

But the real test comes when you move to the next level and you're face to face with person who'll make the final decision about you. This where it really hurts if you're rejected.

When that happens we either blame ourselves for not answering all the questions . . . or not getting them right. Or we blame the employer for being unable to see the value of our credentials. If we're serious about our job search, we replay the interview over and over in our head wondering what we could have done differently. We don't want to make the same mistake again.

Sure, there may have been a disconnect between the employer and our work history. And maybe our educational credentials weren't exactly what they were looking for. But in the final analysis there's only ONE reason why your interview failed. When it comes to making a decision about you only one thing about you will make the difference.

The hiring decision-maker MUST like you.

That's right. The only way you'll get hired is if your next boss is comfortable seeing you as part of the team. He/she sees you fitting into the organization as part of its goals. The employer is comfortable that you can make a difference. And that comfort factor overrides everything. You can be deficient in a lot of areas, but if the decision-maker doesn't genuinely like you . . . your out!

What that means is that you have to take a revolutionary alternative approach to interviewing. In fact, we call it the non-interview. You need to meet face-to-face with an employer in an environment where he/she can comfortably see you as a member of the team--and do so without prematurely judging you as a job candidate.

How do you do that? Well, of course it doesn't happen by chance. But the good news is that there's a proven system that can walk you through the process step-by-step with the result that you can be looking at a job offer in as little as 14 days! Check it out!
