And I’ll add that while you’re solving that problem, they want to enjoy working with you.
I said that it doesn’t matter that you have the right skillset. Let me be clear that yes, you need to show that you have the ABILITY to do the job, but it’s not all that matters - or even the most important thing.
Have you heard the saying "Second place is the first loser"?
When you leave that interview and the hiring manager goes on to interview the other 10 candidates they’ve selected, if you don't stay top of mind, you might as well be at the bottom.
The biggest problem I have seen with my previous clients is the assumption that because they are good at their job they can get another one.
If only it were that easy...
As someone that has interviewed many candidates for corporate jobs, I can tell you the decision to hire someone IS NOT solely based on their abilities.
When I'm interviewing candidates, I am looking at many different factors and you MUST score high in all areas to be considered for the job. If you don't, I know there will be someone after you that will.
