Without giving too much detail, I work in a large multinational, with a large hr department and a seemingly demanding recruitment process. Lately we have had to keep firing and rehiring new people in my department because the candidates allegedly lied or made exaggerations in the interview that they could not fulfill once in the job. With that being said, I did ask my manager out of curiosity and he said they were really good at the interview. I have been trying to move on for a while and whilst I am more than capable of doing the jobs I go for, apparently interviews are my weakest point. So how do they do it? How do they trick the process? Do they just blatantly lie and kiss a lot of --- during the interview? I could see them "tricking" my boss, but they also managed to convince hr. I feel like Tracy flick right now, it doesn't matter how good you are at your job if somebody is going to come and make up a bunch of stuff that the company won't even check afterwards because they know they can sack the person if they turn out to be something else they claimed to be. As for myself, I honestly do not know what I am doing wrong at interviews. Usually I am told that I seem better in person than in my cv, and that they really like me. I have only been given bad feebavk once and that was that I looked "too polished" (I went to an interview in the creative sector wearing my suit as it happened after work). So, I will try to describe my attitue in job interviews as well as I can though to be fair they are very normal interviews. I usually wear a formal suit and glasses. I am overly gracious when the interviewer is late (sadly all the interviews that I've been to, the interviewer was always late, once I even had to wait for an hour). I will answer the questions and talk a out my career. At this point the interviewer will usually praise me and say I am much better in person than on cv. This usually leads to a light hearted chat and the interviewer will say he or she is very impressed. However, I never end up getting the job. So, what am I doing wrong?
