In the barrage of daily questions I get – I think there is more centered about the reverse interview as a means of finding opportunity than any other subject. So, today I thought I would revisit those posts on the reverse interview.
The reverse interview was first explained in a post about a guaranteed way to find a job.
Get my list of MUST ask interview questions!
Who Tries It
Now, this is interesting. When I tell 20 engineering students all looking for work how to do this, just guess how many will really do it?
And remember, I tell them it is a GUARANTEED way to get a job!
Just one. Just one out of twenty – or 5%.
And these are people who are paying me dearly for education. Can I assume only 5% listen and take action on anything else I teach?
And I can only guess when I speak or write, the numbers might be about the same.
So let me make it more interesting!
I dare you to try it! Yes – I dare you!
If you are looking for work, stretch out and talk to people who are where you would love to be in years! Forget about a job – just go talk.
If you already have a job, do the interview with people who are really where you want to be one day! Stretch yourself! See what you learn.
If you are in business for yourself, 0r want to be, do the interview with business people way ahead of you in your same field. See if you learn how to mimic their success. See if 15 minutes with them is not a VALUABLE education.
And I will sweeten the pot! Anyone who does and sends me your story or posts it on comments – you will get a free copy of my book Resumes Are Worthless: How to Find the Work You Love and Succeed.
Again – I dare you!
