To get a chance at a job, you must first fall in love with it. Love is attention. If you spend time on a preliminary study of the job and the employer, you will significantly increase your chances of employment.
Employment and interviewing is something like a poker game. Your task is not to win all the time or be very smart, but to increase the number of games played, to find those who will love you. The job will get the best, that is, the favorite.
An interview and job placement is an ordinary competition or competition where the best win, not the good. The best are the favorites. Love has nothing to do with professionalism, it's just a combination of many factors, half of which are random. If you are loved, it is good, but God forbid you to work with those who do not love you.
At the interview, the most important task of the interviewer is to find out the stress resistance and adequacy of the applicant. Therefore, questions can be provocative, stupid, and offensive. Respond to everything with humor, without fear and without mutual aggression.
A job interview is similar to an exam: one should prepare for a job interview, get some theory and learn more about the company one wants to work for. Students learn Chinese the night before their exam but you are not as smart as a student, so spend, at least, three days getting ready for an interview.
In conversation, hold your breath more often. Your interlocutor uses this pretext to make you a listener, which is good. The more you listen and the less you speak, the more intelligent and smart in all respects you seem to others.
The most important thing in communication is to learn to listen attentively. Don’t get distracted, don’t idly observe flies while reflecting upon the nature of eternity, but listen with great and vehement interest, soaking in every word and gesture of your interlocutor.
First, get a job and then think why you don’t like it. To get a job, you have to feel like it. We live in the world of wishes and all wishes come true here. If you don’t like that job, you won’t get it.
Give a neutral reason why you are looking for a new job. The easiest thing is to say you need money for your dear granny. Just don’t say your past employers were bloodsuckers who led you to depression and made you flee like a coward.
As a last resort, if you do like the job, go for broke and say you are ready to work for free for a couple of months. If this doesn’t work, get on your knees and sob, praying for mercy. Cards like tears.
You need to know your price. Who but you would know your price? If you yourself don’t know your price, how would others know it? The lack of information about the price engenders uncertainty and, consequently, fear and rejection.
