Why Sometimes it Helps to Not Receive Feedback After an Interview

The team at Client Centric Executive Employment Solutions, offer an essential and desired service to all job seekers alike: interview skills coaching

The reason why many job seekers become even more frustrated with the lack of success they are having with interviews is that the employers are not providing them with any feedback.

For many, it's frustrating hearing that they're unsuccessful only not to be given any indication as to the reason for the rejection. It's like your almost going blind into the whole interview process. The employer interviews you. However, you don't know if you said the wrong thing or maybe someone else is genuinely better and more experienced than you are.

Sometimes it's not you. It's not that you don't have the right skills or experience. It's not that they don't like you.

It's not that you said something wrong. It could just be that the circumstances warrant hiring someone who has significant and robust experience.

Hiring them would mean that the employer can just put them into the job, and they will perform by hitting the ground running without any additional training needed.

So by not hearing back, any feedback from the employer may help you to stay focused and in control, ready to tackle the next interview. Sometimes feedback is good, but unless someone actually coaches and guides you in handling the interview, usually people don't apply the feedback, or if they try to, they don't know precisely how to change.

That's why Client Centric offers their interview coaching service. The coach provides you with feedback, suggestions and tips. They will commend and praise you on where they feel you are doing well. And they will give constructive feedback and most importantly, practical guidance on how to make a strong impression during the interview.

So, you may ask, what is selection criteria and what is it used for? According to the University of Melbourne, they define selection criteria as:
Key  selection criteria are the skills, attributes, knowledge and qualifications  that the employer has defined as being essential for satisfying the  requirements of the job and can be found in every Position Description.  So that the employer has some level of surety that who they interview can meet the requirements of the position, they use a set of selection criteria, which can be anywhere from 5 criteria to 15 criteria.
