Can you just tell me what you want so I can eliminate you from this wonderful position because I can’t satisfy your needs?

Good. Grief.

Why do employer’s ask stupid questions.

Maybe, if I was going easy on them, I’d ask, “Why do employers not ask questions the right way?”

I mean, the way that’d yield the actual info they need to make a good decision about hiring you.

Have you ever been asked in an interview, “What are you looking for in your next role?”

Did that question make you sweat and break out in the heebie-jeebies?

It should have. Because it’s a Yes/No question the employer is answering for themselves based on the several words that are about to come out of your mouth.

The interviewer just wants some assurance you’re interested in the role.

No good can come of you answering this question in any detail or with any specifics.

At best, you’re letting the interviewer know you are essentially interested in the job you’re interviewing for.

At worst, you’re saying something that eliminates you because it doesn’t fit.

Wondering what to do? Say? As in exactly say?

Let’s get to it!
