- Decent resume and interview requests
- No job offers
If your resume was good enough to get a call for the interview, then you probably have the necessary skills to do the job. So what's going wrong? Why aren't you getting the nod from prospective employers?
It's hard to tell what could be going wrong. Perhaps you're not shining in the interviews as much as you are on paper. Consider going back to the company where you interviewed and asking what made them choose the other candidate over you. Be prepared for frank responses, and use them as a guide to see where you can improve your skills. If it's just that you're not selling yourself right, a course in interviewing technique could be beneficial and help you highlight your experience in a way that will make prospective employers drool. Here are some resources to get you started on the right foot:
- How to prepare for an interview
- Advanced job interview techniques for IT pros
- Interview tip for job in configuration
