How do I get a company to hire me? Having gone on interview after interview and being told "oh I love your personality and you have plenty of experience " yet I'm not getting hired. They love my answers and sometime are surprised at my questions when asked if I had anything to ask them. I'm told "oh no one has ever asked any ending questions to ask".

Hey the key is when they ask you if you have any questions for them say yes thats when you interview the interviewer ask them why they chose to work for that company and how they handle stress in the work place ask them the same questions in a different format don't ask about the pay let them tell you about the pay and benefits they want you to get to know them during the interview without them saying it. I hope that helps you

Sounds like we hat I've been going through, though you're getting more interviews than I have.

If I had that answer, I'd be a millionaire, and not nearly as frustrated as I am now with wondering myself what do I have to do to get hired sighs. Interviews go great, I ask questions that make them think, I answer their questions -- even the asinine ones with gusto and thought.. and then I get, "oh we need someone with more experience" or "someone who is a better fit" #frustrated #fedup

I didn't know they made a black Barbie Doll - neat.
But seriously, since you didn't post your resume, it's hard to say where the problem might be. Do you have education/training in medical technology? You mention experience but is it as a Medical Assistant? Are you searching only in your immediate geographical area? Maybe you need to expand your search area.

Often times the interviewer will already have in mind who they are going to hire for the position. They have to interview candidates just to show they did. If your qualifications and experience match and you interviewed well then chances are this is the case. Always remember and I have to remind myself of this too as I am presently searching for employment, there is a job that has your name on it. You may have to interview many times before reaching the job that is truly meant for you. In the meantime be thankful that you are getting interviews because I have not had but a couple of interviews out of the six months of being unemployed. My problem is lack of experience. Try not to get discouraged just know that God has a job with your name on it. Someone may have to leave the position before YOUR job opens up.

Sometimes registering with a search firm that specializes in your field works. A lot of the firms work for the employer therefore doesn't cost you a dime. Hang in there and know that eventually, you will get a job that is a good fit for the company and you.

I understand your frustration. I experienced the same thing after going to interview after interview. I was lucky enough after 2 months of being unemployed to have finally found a job. Don't give up.

I would do a pretty strong close in the interview. That means when offered the opportunity to ask questions, I would ask what their ideal candidate was. It could be that they are looking for someone less polished/experienced than you in order to pay a lower salary. Once I have the answer; I would transition with how your skills, training and experience directly match want they are looking for (be specific and use examples). Finally, I would close by telling them that the position is exactly what you've been looking for and asking if there was any additional information they need from you that would assist them in their decision to advance you to the next interview phase. If the are not blowing smoke, they will give you honest feedback. Not for nothing, but if you are getting the subjective "love your personality" response that is probably someone with limited HR experience. Look for bigger opportunities.

Hi , I understand your frustration. Sometimes if you really like a company, just try and apply to jobs that are below you that the competition is not so high to get your foot at the door then wait for the position you qualify to come up then apply for that. After getting in and working for a while, you can even go to that department and familiarize yourself with the manager and let him or her know your interest in the department . Trust me, they'll keep you in mind when something comes up and you'll have an upper hand over applicants from outside. Companies like to hire people they're already familiar with for demanding positions. If you're already an employee there, chances of getting a position that comes up is pretty high.
