In spite of having a great resume, an amazing cover letter, knowing the right person, amazing performance at the phone interview and knowing exactly what to say. To hear this “I think you would probably get bored with role soon” by the interviewer.
So when everything is going good, how do you still get pass over? You would not be the first and last person to hear this. The easy way to conquer this situation is, being prepared with the response.
Analyzing where did the question from:
Step one: you need to identify with where this response is coming from. Having more qualifications than the job requirement cannot be positive always. Try to be prepared for making an quick impact by inserting some tie ups about being over qualified for the right work you have been offered.
But the recruiter sees that you would be the one who would quickly take up the new role, perform the assigned roles and duties, get bored of the work and move out of the role in a less time leaving the position empty again.
Practiced Response: Found a company where you can see yourself rising for at least next 3-5 years as an opportunity, be prepared to fight for it. Getting repeated chances are rare.
What difficulties are to be avoided?
Initially, using this position as an opportunity to the next step is to be avoided. Companies hire you for a particular role. Don’t explain how this position is going to help you to get another one, as an alternative you should be explaining how great you are going to be to in the position you are hired for.
If this is your dream company, try not to give up effortlessly. Don’t let the interviewer know that you don’t mind being bored. No interviewer is attracted to appoint a self satisfied employee. Talking about your constancy in different roles and how you would build an extended correlation with the company can give out a positive impression. Your references can act as a proof of how good you are in repeating the history
Being Positive & Confident: At some point or the other there are chances of interviewer going negative around you. To acquire the position you are being interviewed you should. Be positive.
Example questions asked by interviewer like “you can’t expect a promotion anytime soon. Is that OK with you? Why is it OK?”
Hypothec questions cannot be answered. In such cases let the interviewer know your eagerness to learn in showing the best. Tell the interviewer that you are confident that with whirling economies the company can offer you better opportunities and consequently you would be okay. Show your confidence in staying long term with the organization which you are not.
