Interviews: Opportunity or Rejection?

July 19, 2013

A radio commentator recently spoke about unemployment rates in certain states …overall, the employment landscape doesn’t look good! He said people are frustrated by sending their resumes out and having the resumes ‘scanned’ by computers, not people. Are you one of those frustrated people? If so, remember, computer resume scanning eliminates your personality, energy, enthusiasm and presentation skills. How do you solve that problem?

Flat paper doesn’t sell YOU very well …if at all! The solution: become an “in your face” –interviewer …which means getting out there and putting your “foot ‘n face’ in the door of employment opportunity by showcasing your personality, capabilities and confidence. Have you tried it? Tell me about it.

If you let a computer decide whether you are qualified to come ‘in’ for an interview, the deck is stacked against you. Many companies don’t want you coming in the front door and say ‘I want to work here’ …yet, individuals who do that can increase their chances of going to the front of the line for interviews. Have you ever tried walking into a company and saying; “I want to work here”?

Personal face-to-face introductions are the key to getting past the electronically scanned resume door of rejection. Use a computer, find out who you want to meet and talk with, then get up one morning, dress for success, take your resume, put a smile on” and go out and sell yourself … in person! Try it and let me know what happens!

It’s YOUR JOB to show & sell your personality, energy & enthusiasm ,  determination, strengths and capabilities … and your willingness to be “personally, pleasantly, professionally persistent” in your efforts to be interviewed and hired! If they say ‘no’ … keep trying until they say yes!
