You’ve just had a killer interview. You jibed with the hiring manager, are excited about the opportunity, and even met a few potential team members you liked… and now the waiting game begins. Marketing Recruiter Catherine Lund breaks down what to do next to improve your chances of getting the job.
We all want to make a great impression during a job interview, even if we don’t get the job. This is why we spend so much time prepping for job interviews, reviewing questions we could be asked and trying to look our very best
Prioritizing job applicants is a difficult task. No one wants to discount a candidate who could potentially be the perfect fit for your organization. You also don’t want to be the person who championed a candidate who turned out to be a hiring mistake.
Rejection is part of the job search process. You are not going to get every job you want, and one should expect to get a few “thanks, but no thanks” responses along the way. It’s part of the job hunt – it’s also hard not to take it personally.
No one wants to get fired, but it happens – to a lot of people, all the time, and for a variety of reasons. Whether you did something that violated the company’s code of conduct, are not fitting in with the culture, you got downsized, or it was simply a numbers game, the best thing you can do is focus on the future. Regardless of the reason, you can’t change the fact that you were fired, and you need to move on.
