Overcome Objections in your Job Search

You must learn to overcome objections throughout your job search. Objections are a reality in any type of sales process and must be viewed as buying signs or a request for more information. When you hear an objection, you have two choices:

 

 

  1. Hang up and contact the next person on your list. Obviously this is not very effective.
  2. Overcome the objection which could provide you with results.

Your job search is a learning process. The first time you hear a new objection, you will probably not have an effective rebuttal. However, you should take time to practice what you should have said so you are not stopped by the same objection more than once. We have training audios in our Career Portal Library that address the most common objections and how to counter them effectively under the Interviewing Icon.

If you don’t know how to overcome a specific objection, participate in our live weekly training webinars and we will role play responses you can use. There is only one objection you can’t overcome and that is silence. If an individual had NO interest, they would not be talking to you. It is empowering, when you realize you can overcome objections and keep the conversation going.

MUST READ
It is important to form lifetime connections with every individual you meet throughout your job search process. This also includes the individuals who were involved in the interviewing process of companies who did not hire you. Hiring authorities are usually well connected and you never know what doors they could open for you in the future.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Allison Sullivan was amazing! 

    She found my resume online and reached out to me. I had been in the market looking for the right next step in my career for several months and had been receiving calls daily from different recruiters so I didn’t expect anything magical to occur overnight. Allison called me, we chatted quickly about my work experience and she advised me she thought I’d be perfect for a client she was working with….and literally the next day I got a call for an interview with the client. The day after the interview, I was immediately offered a position consulting on insurance claim management. Allison was checking in with me each step of the way and made the transition from unemployed to working at a career I’m excited about in no time at all! I cannot thank her and Patrice & Associates enough for all their help!

  • I am very thankful for Liz Costa.

    She was kind, informative, and very encouraging during the process of applying, interviewing, and finally accepting the position once it was offered to me. I have worked with several recruiters before and Liz was the most friendly and professional at the same time. She made me feel comfortable and also made me feel confident during the interview process. After only a few weeks, I now consider Liz a friend and would certainly recommend her to anyone who is in the looking in the labor market. Thank you Liz, I appreciate you as a person and a professional.

  • Jonathan Litt set me up for success!

    I am truly excited to start this new journey at this restaurant. I can honestly say I don't think I would have been able to pull this off without Jonathan Litt's help. He was more than professional but at the same time he was authentic and explained everything I needed to do to make things work. He definitely set me up for success. My confidence level wasn't what it used to be, but with his help he made me believe in myself. He encouraged me and believed in me as well. I will never forget his efforts. My appreciation for his work and dedication will always be remembered. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this process. I am forever grateful.

    Thank you again,

  • Rick Weaver is great!

    I love it at my new career and picture my future here. Rick was awesome in helping me choose where I need to be and how I had to get there. It took a lot of interviews and me turning jobs down because it wasn’t a fit for me. At my new career I’m in the right place!  

    Thank you,
