You’re perfect for that job! So ... why can’t they see it? Chances are good that you’re getting lost in translation. Just because YOU know you can do the job doesn’t mean THEY can! Now here’s the catch: neither recruiters nor hiring managers have the time (or interest) in figuring out how your past will fit their future. It’s up to you to express it clearly and concisely. Thus can’t happen in the heat if the moment; you’ve got to take some time to translate your skills BEFORE the interview.
