You may believe that all you need to do in a job interview is answer the questions and if you do a half decent job of answering their questions, than that should all be all you need to do.
But when you do that, you’ve actually lost the interview without even realizing it because everybody else is just doing the same thing.
See the mistake that most people make and you might be doing this to, I don’t know, is that they think answering the questions with great answers will be enough to make them stand apart from the other people that they’ve met with.
But that’s not the case at all because that’s what everyone else is already doing.
They’ve already practiced their answers, they’re already giving really similar answers to you but there’s a way to nail the interview, make your competition completely irrelevant and help you to be the first choice for the job and it involves a lot more than just answering the questions.
By continuing to interview in the same way as everyone else, you’re actually keeping yourself stuck and I get why you might be thinking this way.
We’ve been conditioned to focus on studying our answers to the questions and not much else, that’s what we learn.
That’s what the career centers are gonna teach us, that’s what you’re gonna learn when you look for free info online but what most people don’t realize is is that they’re missing the rest of the pieces that are necessary to land the job offer.
So there comes a point where the interviewers have just heard it all.
If you are not aware of this, it could by why you’re being rejected over and over or are failing to get the job offers that you want.
The truth is, if all you needed to do was answer the questions, then everyone who answered the questions would get hired.
But by choosing to continue to do this, you’ll end up like so many others, just getting turned down maybe your second choice and you know that you’d be able to do a great job with the position but you’re never really given the chance.
And what’s worse is most people don’t even get the feedback that they need to improve.
So how do you make sure that you stand out in your interviews?
You start with mapping out your interview strategy that fits the role that you’re interviewing for.
A strategy that specifically ties into the role and how you specifically approach the role when you’re hired.
So let me ask you this.
Do you really wanna continue to get turned down for jobs over and over that you know you could really kick some butt at?
Or do you wanna get to the bottom of the psychological reasons why hiring managers hire by creating your unique interview strategy.
