Some time ago I got a refusal after an interview because the company was looking for somebody who can "better express their motivation to work for Companyname".
At this point I don't understand how this works at all. Probably this is the polite form of refusing me because of some other reason?
How it looks for me:
- I am not looking actively for a new job, I am just open for opportunities that offer improvement for me as developer and relocation from ex ussr to Europe.
- I was found by a recruiter that offered me the interview with the company that I never heard of before (as usual).
- The Recruiter provided me with some marketing information and news about the company.
- The Interviewer said "we good, we ambitious, we growing, we got funding".
- With such amount of information this company just looks better than an arbitrary outsourcing company.
Which kind of motivation do they expect? I get invitations for interviews once a month on average, in most cases it is product companies and for me they look almost most the same. None of them I heard of before another recruiter contacted me. In most cases they said that they require some other experience. But this is the first time I got refused because of my motivation.
