From our experience, one of the biggest problems job seekers often face is they feel they are coming from an inferior position and they don’t have a lot of personal power.The belief being that the employer has a superior position and has all the power. Sound familiar? Yes, they have the job and they have the power to give you the job or not.
What you may not realize is many hiring managers are under similar pressures as you, the job seeker. They are accountable to their superiors should the person they hire not work out. They have the pressure of finding the right candidate for the vacancy they need to fill.
