What Do You Have To Lose (VIDEO)

 

Have you ever finished second on a job interview? Here’s an idea for something that you can do and maybe you’ll win it later!

Summary

I have a great idea can be helpful to many of you.

Never lose our job? You were beaten out. The manager agonized, but chose the other person. It happens. Have you really wanted that job? Yeah, and it's a disappointment when you lose out. Here's my idea.

It's not like you are incompetent. It's not that you are a loser. I just of the other person market themselves better than you. Maybe they interview better. Maybe they presented better.

Sometimes, there is a single buyer's remorse where an employer winds up deciding a few months later, "I really wish I had that other person."

2 months after you the job has been closed down, after you been turned down, put a little reminder on your calendar and contact the recruiter who presented you (if you are present. The buyer recruiter) or contact the manager directly.

Say, "I! How are you? How's the new person working out?" You keep your mouth shut. "They are doing great!" "I just want to know how much I enjoyed meeting with you and how interested I was in that role. I took a chance that maybe this person wasn't working out so I thought I would reach out to you." It's a great tactic
