I've been shortlisted three times but not got the job, so I know my CV's ok - I wonder whether my interview technique is letting my down. Can anyone recommend a book on interview technique for interview number 4?
I don't really have anyone to do that with - but I do lots of practice in the mirror. The next interview is a group interview to whittle down the shortlist, horror of horrors, god only knows what we'll be doing.
Yes, I've got feedback Blackduck, they all say the same "very difficult decision.. everyone very good... could have appointed any one of you....." and nothing really concrete to work on. What I really want to know is: is there something I'm doing or not doing that means the other candidates are getting the job? Or is it genuinely bad luck, or I'm not good enough.
Sometimes it is bad luck, sometimes it is just a gut feeling one one rather than the other (been on both sides of the fence), I know it is cr*p not to get it but sometimes it is indefinable. No comfort I know, but if their feedback is so vague I guess it is the indefinable - other person fits more than you do.. Or challenge them and say what one thing could I have done/said that would have swung the balance in my favour.
