Should I Beg My Interviewers For That Job Position?
SHOULD I BEG FOR A JOB DURING AN INTERVIEW?
Most interviewers may ask you a question during the interview process.
Looking sternly into my eyes, they asked.
“Why should we employ you for this Job?” Then I thought for a moment this is the right time to emotionally blackmail them to give me this Job. There was one of them who seemed to be sympathetic already about my pathetic story. I really needed this Job.
This was the right time to make them feel more pathetic so they give me this Job, I had thought. i don’t have any other hope. This is my last resort; I have lots of responsibilities to resting on my shoulder. I need to help my Mom and my other families, i begged. I tried to emotionally blackmail them by shedding some tears. They were nice and comforted me well enough. This was a good assurance that i will get the Job. “Don’t worry you will be fine,” said one of the interviewers. Thank you sir i said. You will hear from us very soon, the main interviewer had said. He seemed to be the Senior Human Resources Personnel. i got up from the chair, picked my bag and with a sob said thank you. They replied with a cold heart. i opened and shut the door gently behind me. No doubt this interview would come out well, I thought. I traveled back home from Lagos. At least my travelling from south-south to south-west region wouldn’t be in vain. I believed I had killed that interview.
When I got home, I waited for days and weeks going to a month but no message from them. I never wanted to apply for another job because i was sure i would be called and congratulated.
I waited and there was no message from them.
SO GOING BACK TO THE QUESTION, SHOULD I BEG FOR A JOB DURING AN INTERVIEW? CAPITAL NO.
You don’t need to beg for a job to get it. God who is your heavenly father is not a beggar neither are you. They won’t give you the Job because you feel pathetic. You just should show to them that you are weak. You are not strong enough to handle things. It completely shows you don’t know who you are. You are a seed of Abraham. The Lord of Host of heaven and earth is your Father. “The earth is the Lord’s and its fullness therefore.” He has made you to have dominion over everything in this earth and placed them under your feet.
So next time when asked, why should our organization to offer you this Job? Let them know how indispensable you are. Let them know about your special attributes and career prowess. Don’t show self-pity. Do not downgrade yourself and your dignity to get a peanuts job where you wake up early and come home late to eat the bread of sorrow. The recruiters need a suitable employee for the job position, no amount of begging, sobbing and crying will give you that dream Job inasmuch they have a more qualified candidate for that Job. All you need is God’s favor and patience.
