Question: I have been employed in good standing with a great corporation for more than eight years.
Working in the administrative field has been my specialty for years, and I've worked my way into the position that I hold now: Receptionist/Clerk.
I have grown this position over four years to be much more than a receptionist; I'm more like an Administrative Assistant/Office Manager.
I strive for challenge, change and continuous learning. Over the past few years, I have applied for internal transfers and promotions, applying for nine different position in the past two years alone.
Each position was filled with another candidate. Why?
When I get the calls to let me know that I did not receive the jobs, the responses were along the lines of: "You interview well. We like your personality. You were one of the top candidates. Your skill set was very desirable, but we did not think you would be a fit for the position."
Can someone give me some feedback to let me know what you think? -- Anonymous
