….the interview is like a first date???

…some gal  on the Internet tells people a job interview is like going on a first date… this is ridiculous… the gal might be a good writer, or a good researcher, or whatever… but don’t buy this garbage!

An interview is not a DATE… an interview is not SOCIAL… an interview is a SALES situation… they’re 43 other people competing for this job… you have to be forceful and aggressive… an interview is NOT a “two-way street” of give-and-take… Until you get to the final interviewing stages it is a “one-way street”  and  you  are doing all of the selling… you gotta be downright pushy… but nice…

P-L-E-A-S-E don’t buy this silly stuff… interviewing is a business deal…PERIOD… certainly you want to get people to like you but you have to show them how you are going to benefit their organization… make ’em money or save ’em money…Don’t try to complicated anymore than that.
