Are you letting your career go to pot?

When faced with an opportunity to interview, do you find yourself growing immobilized by questions... "Is this the position I really want?" or "Is this company the right match for me?" or "Is this the best time to change jobs?"

Go on interviews to find your answers. No one wants a career stuck in a mire of indecision. As long as you have a "question mark" about an opportunity, you owe it to yourself to find the answer.

Open closed doors

An interview is an invitation through an otherwise closed door. Take advantage of this incredible opportunity to look, listen, learn.

Some candidates who interview for one opening receive an offer for a higher-level job at the same company. Other candidates who are originally reluctant to change jobs end up changing their minds the instant they walk through the interview door. In our vast experience, candidates who succeed are ones who keep themselves open to opportunity.

What's the worst that can happen?

Many candidates have claimed that "the worst" interview scenario is discovering that they do not like the company or the job. We disagree. The worst scenario is this... you want the job, but the company hires someone else instead!

For this reason, no matter what questions you bring to the interview, it's wise not to come across as uncertain or half-hearted. An interview is not the time to express doubts. Use questions to empower yourself and collect information without making quick judgments. Save your larger questions, such as "Do I want this job?" until after the interview. Only then can you make a truly informed decision.

When you play out the interview process to the end, you may be surprised at where it takes you.
