Have you ever wondered why some people are having a hard time getting hired while others are having no trouble at all?
It may be that you’re not expecting to get the job in the first place. You’re just there for the interview and you are not expecting anything. Deep inside, you expect that you will not get the job and that something WRONG will happen. To fix thi, you have to start looking for good things that that will happen out of the interview. Start visualizing how you will be able to ace the interview and how easy it is to pass all the tests that you will have to go through.
The minute you get thrown an expected question you immediately panic. Your first reaction is already in defense of yourself, that’s why you’re unable to answer the questions properly. You beat around the bush and you’re not able to answer the question correctly. You totally freeze and you end saying “Uhm” or say something absurd during the critical part of the interview. To remedy this, you need to be practice answering possible questions that may crop up during the actual interview.
Expect the unexpected, you probably heard this phrase before. There is really no way to expect the unexpected all you need to do is just be prepared. Preparation is the key ingredient in job hunting you should never be lax about it. If you are given an unexpected question or you are in an unexpected situation. It’s best to take a second before you answer the interviewer’s question to make sure that you are able to answer it correctly. Notice how beauty pageant contestants pause before they answer the question, you can do that too, take a pause and then repeat or rephrase the question of the interviewer before giving your answer.
It may be an uncommon obstacle in getting a job but it can greatly influence your interest in a job. Say for example if you see your level of education as higher than what the job require, you may end up not applying for a certain job even if you’re interested in it. In the end, you will end up the losing the opportunity to get hired and possibly further lose the chance to get a higher position in the company because you failed to apply and get hired for the job opportunity. Be open to jobs that may lead to greater things, practice seeing things that other job applicants don’t. Look at what will be and not just what is, see the potential of a job opening and not just its present value.
