Why Aren’t You Getting the Job?

Applying for jobs over and over again can be a disheartening experience. It can feel like you are the problem, when actually, it’s probably a case of your experience or interests just not lining up correctly with the organisation. If you can learn to avoid this situation happening, this will make you much more likely to get the job in future.

If you are finding that you’re consistently getting turned down for new positions, think about the following:

  • Do you need to be more confident? Candidates who are confident will generally do better in interviews.
  • Are you applying for the right positions? If your skills and interests don’t match the job description, employers can generally tell. They’ll get a sense about you straight away.
  • Have you got the right attitude? Interviews are all about assessing how you present yourself. If you’re struggling to get jobs, you may need to work on your overall demeanour and attitude.
