I am about to have a telephonic interview with a company, but i had a previous interview with some other company which turned me down, the reason was
We didn't see him as a long term, like to say he sounded that he ws in for a contract or short term
This was the feedback i got from recruiter from them,another face 2 face interview feedback was similar (IMO) as follow
My last interview feedback was long through a recruiter and it says the following He - Was the strongest of the three (technically speaking) – He clearly knows his stuff in terms of coding (across a variety of platforms) – but his interview answers were far too meandering and vague for us to be able to take things forward with him. He also didn’t seem to have really engaged with what the organisation is before coming in for interview. Additionally, while we have no doubt he could perform a support role admirably as part of a technical/development team – we weren’t convinced that he could take the initiative at times – which is crucial for this role as it develops over the next 12 months. While there is a lot of strategic support/consultation within the team (hence us not advertising for a head of digital) we do need someone who can ‘join the dots’ and actually see creative ways to realise our projects. He came across as being better suited to a role where there is a clear/responsible Development Lead in charge.
So how can i sound more enthusiastic about the role on the phone?
