episode 2269
i'm jeff alton the big game runner and
welcome
i'm going to be disappearing not doing
the show from wednesday to wednesday uh
thanksgiving holiday in the u.s and
we're driving up to meet to spend some
time with family so i'm going to take a
little time off i'm going to do that at
the end of the year as well
between christmas and new year's
but
right now it's
i got two shows to do before i take a
short break
and today's is one where
very simply i answer someone's question
uh that i did in a link linkedin live
i want to say last week but i don't
remember exactly when it's about why do
they keep saying
and what did they say to me that
i was going to have a second interview
and then they rejected me hope you find
this helpful hope you give it an honest
review wherever you listen to the show
and i'll be back in just one moment
support for today's show comes from
green geeks green geeks is a web host it
has to be the host that i use
and they make web hosting very expensive
and very easy providing great support
which is something i didn't get from
previous web hosts use the link in the
show notes they've got promotions that
are very inexpensive
again that's greengeeks.com
and we'll be back in just one moment why
would an interviewer mention a second
interview
and then reject you
obnoxious yeah
but often there are factors outside of
their control that come into play
sometimes a wreck is pulled sometimes
they're afraid to tell you in the room
that they're going to get turned down
sometimes
you know they just meet someone who they
think is stronger and they fall head
over heels for that person it's like a
romance uh so they are romanced by this
other person
fall in love
and
you know decide that even though they've
mentioned that second interview to
someone they're ready to move forward
as i said sometimes a wreck is is pulled
sometimes they're told something about
the individual from someone who may know
you that's a really small possibility
but it sometimes happens uh and thus
understand
you know
we're all human beings we make mistakes
we don't always do things in the best
way possible
they shouldn't have mentioned the second
interview if they didn't plan on
following through with it but given that
they've done it
and they're pulling back uh they've
decided that
you know it's not going to go any
further it's like a date where you had a
good first impression and then thought
about it said
i don't think so maybe there's a warning
sign or two here
or
maybe
they're being pushed into doing
something different by their boss
a lot of possibilities for this i can't
know which one it is but the outcome is
still the same
and it's not a good look for that firm
so that's today's show i hope you found
it helpful and if you did here are a few
things i can do to help you with your
job search beyond simply being your
coach
first of all i've got a new book out
called the right answers to tough
interview questions it is like a
cookbook with answers to
tons of interview questions that you're
going to be asked on interviews
