If you’re like most job seekers, you approach your job search with a set of beliefs about how the hiring process works, what responses from employers are good signs, and what responses are bad signs. But in many cases, those beliefs are flat-out wrong, and some of them can hinder your search. For instance:
- “The interview went well, so I’m likely to get a job offer.”
- “I haven’t heard back yet, so I probably didn’t get the job.”
- “My graduate degree should make me a more desirable candidate.”
