Are You Passionate Enough in Your Job Search?

It is not just our qualifications that determine whether we get a desired job. It is also the passion we display about getting and doing that job during the interview stage of the hiring process.

Consider these observations from Jessica Simko, writing for Careerealism:

“You [should] understand why a person who may be less qualified than you gets a job you don’t get. It’s all in the presentation. Oftentimes, you say all the right things but if your presentation is flat, it will fall on its face. If you don’t really want the job or you aren’t excited about it, it shows even if you say, ‘I want to work here more than any other company.’”

“Enthusiasm, presence, and passion – these qualities excite hiring mangers and they will always tip the scale in someone else’s favor if you don’t show up with them in your interview. When you are expressing  those qualities, people can’t help but love you and be engrossed in everything you say. This is especially important to remember when you consider that many hiring managers conduct back to back (or close together) interviews. I cannot express in words how often candidates get tossed out of the candidate pool simply by deficiencies in their overall presentation that only become apparent when running multiple interviews back to back or close together.”
