It has been days, weeks or even months since your job interview and you have not yet received any call or email from the interviewer, but later you learn the vacancy has been filled by someone else even though you were very sure it was your good interview, close to perfection, and you would be called for the next round.
Below are some points to share to let you know where things went wrong for you and what you can do for the improvement of your performance henceforth:
In this era most of the job seekers rely on articles and books to get selected in interviews, but know that human resource managers too will be aware of such guides. He or she can spot manufactured or canned replies.
It is suggested to practice what you would reply so that you can be flexible as well as comfortable. Also, don’t rehearse too many times to avoid ending up sounding stilted and unnatural. Never consider interview as big bad monster and believed that interview is simply a conversation.
Know Workplace Culture
It is suggested to contact people who know about the workplace culture of the company.
A survey finds not all the professionally successful people are confident in talking about their achievements. It is important to know how to elaborate about your successes like saying you saved the company $300,000 during a project. In any way, if you are stumped by any question during the interview, it is better to say that you would return to it later.
