They don’t need what you have | The Job Whisperer
Published: June 17 2015
And, as you know, you don’t have what they need.
Sometimes it’s really hard to understand why you didn’t get a call back after applying for and interviewing for a position you really wanted. But it shouldn’t be hard to understand why you didn’t get a call back for a job you shouldn’t have bothered to apply for, a job far removed from your skills, temperament, and competencies. A position that doesn’t require and couldn’t possibly include the things you are good at and like the most when you get to do them.
Don’t apply for, ask for, or otherwise pursue jobs that aren’t for you. It just wastes everyone’s time and energy. And, paradoxically, it will make you even sadder to fail to land a job you didn’t really want.
