Some Reasons for Not Getting a Job Offer

Get lots of job interviews but no offers? Many times the problem is with the way you are presenting yourself. That understandable since most people do not go for job interviews that often and so do not have the practice with doing this well. Here are some reasons why you may not be getting a job offer:

1. You’re simply not qualified.

2. You don't show enough enthusiasm. If you don't appear enthusiastic during a job interview then a hiring manager may wonder what your attitude will be like after you’re hired.

3. You appear too self-centered - you concentrate on what’s in it for you without regard to what you have to offer. The employer wants to know what you can do for them.

4. You seem to have unclear job goals. Employers are not interested in hiring people who don’t know what they want to do.

5. Saying negative things about previous employers. You last boss may have been an idiot but it is better to put a positive spin on your job search by saying you’re looking for better opportunities when asked why you are making a change. As tempting as it may be to discuss how bad your previous employer was, keep your negative thoughts to yourself.

6. Poor personal appearance. First impressions will affect the rest of the interview and so personal appearance can eliminate you before you even open your mouth.

7. Not being prepared for the interview. Preparation includes practicing your answers to interview questions as well as researching the company. Interviewers are always impressed when you know something about their company. Be ready to answer commonly asked interview questions.

8. A lack interpersonal skills. The employer wants someone that has the necessary skills but also someone they will enjoy working with.
