It can be so frustrating when you go for a job interview and then find out afterward you didn’t get the role. It can be disappointing if you felt you prepared and was skilled enough for the position. Here are some reasons why you didn’t get the role.
You are under or overqualified for the role
A lot of people often apply for roles which they are underqualified for,and that’s why they don’t get the job. Of course, it’s always good to push yourself to go for something that will test you every day. But companies need someone who is guaranteed to do a good job and will not make mistakes. Therefore, they will likely choose someone with more experience who will do a better job. It can be worth going for something under the pay grade you are after, as you will build up experience and can move forward with that company. At the same time, you shouldn’t go for a position which you are overqualified for. A lot of people do this and won’t get the job because the company expects you will leave when you find something more suited to your skills.
Lack of confidence
Another reason why you might not have got the position is that you lacked confidence at the interview. Everyone gets nervous at interviews, and that’s normal. But if you don’t make them feel like you will be confident enough in the position they won’t hire you. It’s a good idea to sit down and figure out why you aren’t so confident in your life. You should have belief in yourself that you are a confident and strong person if you want others to believe it too. If your looks are causing you to lack in confidence, it might be time to change them. Cut your hair and wear makeup, if it makes you feel more confident. If you are unhappy with your body, eat healthier and exercise more to be happier with your weight. If it’s something less easy to change such as how your nose looks, you may want to contact companies such as Belcara Health. They can talk to you about procedures they can do to make you feel happier about yourself. Once you build your confidence up, you will soon feel stronger and impress at interviews.
It wasn’t right for you
You will be surprised to hear that despite how much you dwell on the fact you didn’t get it, the real answer could be it wasn’t right for you. The company wants someone there who will be happy in the role, and if they feel that’s not you, they aren’t going to waste both your time by hiring you. Otherwise, if they employ you, you might end up leaving after a couple of months as it’s not something you enjoy doing. That’s often why a company might ask what you are planning to do in five years or what your dream job is. They can see if you want to do the position and if you will be there in the long run.
