Common interview mistakes that could keep you from getting the job

Post by Hunterforjobs on Mon Jan 14, 2013 3:31 pm

Thought this was interesting. Put out by the University of Phoenix.

Mistake: You don’t ask for the job.

Why it matters: If you don’t let a prospective employer know you want the job, she might give it to someone who does.

How to overcome it: The end of an interview is not the time to be coy about what you want. If you’re excited about the job and want it, let the interviewer know. “Close the deal,” advises Shaurette. “Say, ‘The search is over. It’s no secret that I want this job,’” she suggests.

Beshara also recommends the direct approach: “Say, ‘There is no reason to interview [other] people. I am the guy you ought to hire.’ Then ask, ‘What do I need to do to get the job?’”

In the end, with the right combination of preparation, poise and persistence, you can send a loud-and-clear message to prospective employers that you’re the right person for the job.

I've always wanted to do this, but I've been at the other end in hiring others, and I'm not sure I would've appreciated someone saying this to me. I do agree that expressing your interest for the job is a good thing, but to suggest that the HR (who does a lot of the interviewing) that they don't have to look any further...not sure I would say those exact words. I don't like "cocky" people myself, therefore I don't want to come off that way to others ...but that's just me. And.... in a high paying position that maybe acceptable, it may show an employer that you can assert yourself when need be...but I'm not aiming for those big salaried positions that get away with that...lol

During interviews I have brought up names of people who were already employed there, or relatives names that I knew they knew...but I wasn't even comfortable doing that..it's like "name dropping" and expressing an assumption that the HR person was should hire me on that basis alone...not sure the HR person would appreciate that assumption of them. Again these are just my opinions.

Good information. Smile
"What do I need to do to get this job"....um this may backfire on you. I agree that it may come off as being to desperate or cocky and a sure way to get a resume tossed in the trash. Im sure it can be said in more professional way.

I don't know about you Lynn..but maybe I am too darn old, and I still revert back to the way I used to apply for jobs years ago, and got hired...being polite, interested, professional, and friendly. I didn't know we had to go back to school just to find out how to deliver yourself during an interview...or is it that all these instructions, and methods people are coming up with is just another way of them making money...click on their link, and they get paid.
