I went for a job interview a month back, got through some preliminary tests to an interview and group work exercise. Role play is traditionally not something I like, but I felt confident enough, buoyed up slightly by one of the interviewers saying that I’d seemed confident giving a pre-interview presentation.
Sadly failed to get the job, the feedback I got later on indicated what I had thought had gone wrong, lack of sufficient experience in decision making mainly. And it showed up something I hadn’t thought of, in the group work I was able to raise objections and see things from alternative points of view but didn’t have enough original ideas of my own.
But then they went on to say that I appeared, in effect, quite timid. Nervous and speaking softly to the point of being inaudible, I seemed to be afraid to speak out at the the role play exercise. A familiar taunt from school, but I never really thought I appeared that bad, or was so softly spoken to be inaudible :smack:
