You might have noticed that you have a growing list of business cards in your business’s mailbox. It’s not a sign of success. It’s simply the result of the way you choose to communicate with those you’re dealing with.
There are two things you should do with your business cards. First, don’t try and shove them in people’s faces. Second, don’t try and talk to anyone who doesn’t have the knowledge or experience to back up that statement. You might get an interview, but no matter what you do, you will probably get passed over for another job.
People often times try to talk to a potential client or potential employee by calling the company’s name, asking the name of the person or individual that works there, or asking if they would like to chat about work. This is all fine and dandy if you want to ask about your job or your job’s location, but in most cases you probably should not be asking someone what their job is.
This is what may be the most frustrating part of this conversation. The conversation about your job should not be about you. It should not be about your job or your job location. It should not even be about you and your hobbies. If anything, it should be about the people you are interviewing with. You might find that the person interviewing you is in the same industry as you, or is in the same company, but you should never be trying to make a connection with the person interviewing you.
You may not want to be the one interviewing someone, but it’s important to keep in mind that just because a job is boring, doesn’t mean it isn’t interesting. You can tell a lot by the way you dress and how your voice sounds when you talk. If you are looking for a job that is going to be boring, you should not try to get an interview with the person interviewing you.
I’m not here to say whether or not having a boring job is a good or bad thing. But if you have a job that is boring, you shouldn’t try to make a connection with the person interviewing you. And I think that’s really important when you meet someone. Even if you say hi and don’t really get along with them, you should still try to make a connection with them if you want to.
Just like any job, having a boring job can be a good thing, but not if you’re stuck doing it for a decade. Having a boring job leads to a lot of people who want to work for a boring company. This can lead to the person interviewing you to be bored and not want to work with you at all. If you are a jackass who wants to work at a boring company, you have no chance of getting an interview.
At least two people I know who got jobs after they failed an interview in Florida. The first one was a guy who tried to work for a boring company in Phoenix. The second guy was a jackass who worked for a boring company in Florida. Both men were told they were boring and useless.
Sure, there are exceptions to the rule, but if you don’t work at a boring company, you’re still going to get an interview. It’s like trying to get into a school in which people are not only not qualified, but never want to get a job.
For some reason, we like to think that Florida is a great state for hiring people for jobs. I have, however, come to realize that it’s not. There are plenty of people who are just plain not qualified and won’t be able to get hired. Just because you have a great resume and work experience doesn’t mean you’re going to get a job. So maybe one of these guys should have looked at the resumes of the other guy…
