The ONLY Reason You Get Hired

It isn’t your experience.

It’s not your education.

It’s not your resume, your cover letter, your interview skills, or your contacts.

You get hired because they like you.

As Susannah Breslin writes in her Forbes’ article How To Fail At A Job Interview – 

“Interviews are like two dogs sniffing one another’s butts. Either you click. Or you don’t.”

How do you click?

Be honest. Be curious. Be sincere. Be funny. Be helpful.  

Talk about them

Not about you.

If you forget everything else…

Remember this.

No click. No gig.
