Why Can't I Get that Job?

What do I need to do to get that job?

How often do you feel that you were a perfect fit for the position but did not get the offer?  You may have felt that you provided impressive answers, connected with the interviewer, had the exact experience wanted, met all their requirements, and even sent but timely follow up notes. Despite your extensive efforts, the company awarded the position to another candidate. If only you could understand why you did not get that job.

This presentation will open your eyes as to why you may not have won the position or may have never been in the running as a viable candidate. Alex Freund, The Landing Expert, shares what won’t be revealed to you by Human Resources or hiring managers. Based on his observations and experiences as a career search expert and someone who has hired hundreds of employees as a corporate leader, he will pull back the curtain on the interviewing process and why you weren’t “the one.”

Attending will enable you to identify potential signals as to what’s really going on.  You’ll become empowered to ask questions and act strategically so that you become the candidate who gets the offer.

In this session, you will:

  • Identify those things that rule out most candidates right away
  • Explore the “secret culture and decision making process” that exists in most every organization
  • Learn what to say when the hiring manager asks if you have any questions
  • Understand why and how someone will be an advocate for you
