Hi, everyone! I just bought the interviewing series, and it was a great use of my money! I recently had an interview, and enacted all the suggestions (the close was weak; i've never done one. The manager smiled and said, "Sounds reasonable".) I felt like a hero.
The following week, I followed up with the recruiting firm that had landed me the interview, and he sounded legitmately unhappy with the firm. He said that it kept coming back wanting more this and more that. ("We'd like a Bachelor's", then "We'd like an MBA" then "We'd like a couple of years of experience").
The recruiter's voice was professionally frustrated, if that makes sense.
I'm a recent MBA (2010), and have definitely struggled to kick start the career. I've been in the financial analysis and auditing world, combined are 16 months.
Any suggestions on how to be successful in an interview with these odds?
