Cruise Line Class's curator insight, February 19, 2014 8:50 AM

No doubt about it,  if you have been out of work for a period of time you will come face-to-face with some interviewers who are skeptical. 

 

So how do you combat those skeptics?  Being prepared will help you to answer the questions around why you left your last job, and what you have been doing since your last position in a confident and professional manner.  I even suggest to get ready for the unintentional skeptical gestures that you might experience from an interviewer. 

 

"Why did you leave your last job" question:

Potential interviewer concerns may be -- Is there a performance reason why this candidate was selected for the re-organization?

 

My advice:  Ensure that the interviewer understands that it was not an isolated situation.  For example, "Mrs. Jones, I was part of the ____ division for ABC Corporation and the entire division in the call center was outsourced, or I was part of the Florida satellite office for ABC Corporation and over 50% of the ___ employees were impacted." 

 

In regards to how many jobs you have applied for or what you have been doing since you have been unemployed.

 

My suggestion:  As the article says, volunteering for projects is wonderful.  Also, you could take classes to fill in the skills gap and to set yourself apart from other candidates. 

 

You could take local classes, self teach yourself on lynda.com, and even take some free certificate courses on Edx.  The classes are free and you could build your knowledge and strategically place on your resume courses from MIT, Caltech and more.

 

So when an interviewer asks what you have been doing with your time you can respond with I have taken the time to take courses on business with MIT, etc.

 

I know that it is not easy, and the intent of this community and my blog is to equip you with information, skills, and tools to land you the job. 

 

Please let me know if you have any questions, and what I can do to help.

 

PS - Live on Purpose!

Nice article with excellent points!

 


Other potential good signs:

- The Recruiter or HR Manager starts cheering for you and begins almost coaching you on how to dress, or gives you tips on the department manager, or on what to expect with a second interview.

- Both the Recruiter and Hiring Manager ask you enthusiastically...how soon can you start?

- If the HR Manager asks you if it is okay with you that they contact your current employer for a reference

- If they start providing you with more information on the company, the job, and company orientation information to read.

 

Regardless if you say to your friends and family..."I saw the sign" -- they loved me.  Please don't ever give your notice until you have received the official offer letter in writing.

 

Things change quickly with companies, and I have seen positions placed on hold or an internal candidate promoted into a position at the last hour.

 

All you can do is put 100% of your energy and focus on what you have control over, and that is on what you think, say, and do.

 

Until we speak again...PS - Live on Purpose!
