3 Questions to Ask When You Don’t Get Offered the Job

May 23rd, 2014

There will always be times in the lives of job seekers when they do not get the offered a job for which they felt perfectly qualified. There are simply too many good candidates currently available for everyone to be offered the job of their dreams. However, if this happens to you it may be a perfect learning experience. When you aren’t offer a job take an opportunity to check with the hiring manager and get some feedback.

  1. Is there anything I could improve for my next interview? You never know what someone might prefer or what small things can set them on a path to make a decision. Ask them how you conducted yourself in the interview and if there is anything you can do to improve your chances with the next company. You may be surprised by the helpful feedback they are able to provide.
  2. How did you select the individual that you hired? It is good to know not only why you weren’t selected but also how they made the decision to select someone else. Was it a personality fit? Did this person possess more skills that could help them in the job? The rejection for a job is almost never personal so it will feel good to hear some of the reasons that are beyond your control.
  3. Can you keep me in mind for other opportunities or refer me to someone else? Most importantly, you should never burn a professional bridge even if you don’t get the job or may never work for the company. The hiring manager knows other professionals and they may feel like you would be a good fit for a different opportunity in the future. However, if you don’t ask you probably won’t be considered.
