Interview Tip of the Month

Didn't Get Hired? Do This One Thing

Didn't Get Hired? Do This One Thing

Not getting the job is disappointing, but it also presents a learning opportunity. Asking followup questions after you've been rejected can help you grow as a job seeker and improve your candidacy the next time around:

  • Use the phone. Initiate with an email asking for constructive feedback, but suggest a phone call. Because of liability issues, an employer is more likely to respond if there's no written record of the conversation.
  • Get specific. "How can I improve my interviewing style?" "What key qualifications was I missing?" "Do you have suggestions for strengthening my resume or cover letter?"
  • Don't put your interviewer on the spot. You'll get more candid feedback if you don't ask directly why you weren't hired.

Need help showing employers just how awesome a candidate you are? Give Opti Staffing Group a call.
