The sad truth is, it probably wasn't your fault. But, it is your problem! The goal here is to help you understand the actual reasons you get the job (or have interview success). Once you understand the three--often-undetectable--reasons you ultimately get the job, you'll be more prepared for next interview. Mistake Alert: Most people think they get a job because of their qualifications. In doing so, they expend so much energy in the interview focusing on their experience. You get a job interview because of your qualifications. You get the job for three reasons, none of which are your qualifications. Why do you get the job? Based on my observation from thousands of interviews between my clients (the hiring companies) and job candidates (prospective employees), I've concluded a candidate's attainment of the job is largely contingent on three often-undetectable success factors: - The candidate's ability to effectively articulate his or her qualifications and potential contributions (encoding) - The interviewer's ability to accurately interpret the candidate's qualifications (decoding) - The interviewer's capacity to remember the candidate (memory) The reality is you have a greater chance of failing the interview because of a misrepresentation or misinterpretation than you do a lack of qualification. Action: After you review the video, think about your previous interviews (or exchanges with coworkers) and consider where you had these communication breakdowns. What could you have done differently? Up Next! In the next lesson, How to Tell Great Stories, I'll help you overcome these communication gaps. You'll learn the five key characteristics of every great story that makes you likeable, believable, and memorable to the employer. See you in a day or so! -------------------- ABOUT TIPS FOR WORK AND LIFE® -------------------- Tips for Work and Life® is a weekly careers, hiring, and motivational show full of helpful job search strategies, career management and acceleration tactics, recruitment techniques, and self-help aids with the award-winning author, career coach, and trainer Andrew LaCivita.
