Are You Getting Interviews, But Not the Job?

Are You Getting Interviews, But Not the Job?

John Rossheim, Monster Senior Contributing Writer

How to Diagnose Where You Might Be Going Wrong

Your resume has earned you interviews with several employers over the past year. That’s impressive, especially in this economy.

But none of those interviews has yielded a job offer. You’ve done the standard interview preparation. You’ve shown up on time and dressed in appropriate interview attire. But somewhere between the paper credentials and the live performance, you’ve failed to deliver.

Perhaps yours is a failure of imagination. Have you taken the time and trouble to imagine what your interviewers’ needs are, and the specific business problems their companies need you to solve? If you haven’t done so in-depth, it’s time to start.

But before you face the formidable challenge of thinking like your interviewer and her CEO, try taking on the perspective of a lesser intellect: a fly on the wall.

    Taping yourself is a great suggestion...never thought of trying that. I can only imagine all the things I do wrong..
