Are You Getting Interviews, But Not the Job?

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.

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.
