5 Crucial Reasons To Attend Interviews Despite Not Wanting To-Job Mindz
Sometimes, in a desperate moment of haste, a candidate applies for as many job postings as he/she can, only to find out later that he/she doesn’t really want to go attend that interview or go to the job. Does that mean you should be sunbathing at the beach rather than sitting in a room without windows? NO!
Here are some reasons you still have to attend that interview you don’t want to.
Judging a book by its cover
You have heard this proverb many a time but still, you judge a book by its cover, a movie by its name or cast and crew, a position by the description of the job and so on. You might think the place is boring. However, in reality, the place might turn up to be one of the best and most interesting places you’ve ever visited.
Practice makes you perfect
Even if you don’t ace the interview and end up not getting the job, it will prove to be a valuable experience and you can avert repeating the same mistakes in the next interview. You may have crammed up sections like the “Tell me about yourself section” and recited it in five different languages so much so that your family members now avoid meeting you lest you start reciting the same thing again. But what’s better than real life experience? More exposure is always better.
When success knocks at the door, you shouldn’t say “No change!”
Who knows if that interview you don’t want to attend might actually open up various possibilities and options you didn’t know existed? Let me tell you the real-life example of my friend, Andhaka Fartmann. He is a half German, so that German surname. He wanted to get into animation but he couldn’t. So he randomly applied to a writing job and was even called for the interview. Reluctantly he went. Guess what? He got into his dream job despite having applied for the post of a technical writer!
It can open new possibilities
You might end up working on something you’re most excited about, even if the job requirement doesn’t mention it. You can explore new ventures. You may get a project you enjoy working on. You might land a job in a cheerful and positive job environment which you like. Either way, it will assist you in opening new doors.
Thinking outside the box
You love thinking outside the box but the job posting doesn’t mention anything about “out of the box thinking”. Nevertheless, you better go attend the interview still. You never know what opportunities you are missing if you don’t attend the interview. You might be able to do “Out of the box” thinking even in that job.
