Why am I getting the interviews but not the jobs?
I am at a loss. I found out today that I was turned down for another job. I am getting second and even third interview, they just aren't picking me. I really need some help. I have a third interview coming up and am terrified I may not be able to close the deal. It's good that they I am being chosen to complete their interview process; however, I am not getting any offers. My unemployment is about to run out and I am panicking. Do you have any suggestions for the third interview? Maybe things I haven't thought of? I am confident, self-assured, enthusiastic, and prepared. I come with questions and even compliments about the staff or company, depending on which is appropriate in normal conversation. The market is tight here and I have to stand out. Any suggestions?? I could really use the feedback. I am also concerned about this upcoming interview because it is in the automotive industry and they are preferring someone with an automotive background. They know I don't have this; however, how can I confidently and professionally handle any objectives where the industry is concerned?

Haven't you asked for feedback from the previous interviews/jobs? Get as much feedback as possible and keep trying. Finding a great job involves luck and persistence on top of skills... In any case, looking desperate in the interview will probably not help much. Good luck!

Just show them that they need you by showing them that you are the best for the job. If you know you would be the best and do as much as you can in the interview and they don't hire you then, simply, they are the ones losing out, not you. Today I had my first interview at Best Buy, and overall, I'm not too sure if I'll... More
