Recruiter Explains Why Companies Don’t Hire The Most Qualified Person For The Job And What Job Interviews Are Really About

Have you ever been 100% confident about securing a job offer? You matched all the requirements, had experience in the field and smashed all the interview questions. And then a week goes by, and you try to reach out to the company, hoping that they misspelled your email address, and that’s why you haven’t received the offer. But soon enough, you get an email stating that they “have selected the candidate whom we believe most closely matches the job requirements of the position.”

Then you think it just doesn’t make sense, a load of baloney if you ask me. These kinds of emails really do make you feel worthless, don’t they? It just reminds us that there is always someone “better,” “more experienced” than us. However, it’s not always about that. Perhaps you are (would you believe it) too good for the company? Yes, I said it. Just hear me out.

Recently, Runa Jiang, “career & smallbiz” coach and TikToker, posted two videos on TikTok that revealed some essential and unheard-of insights from the recruitment process. The woman explained how our understanding of job interviews couldn’t be further from the truth. “Did you really think that the companies try to hire the best, most qualified candidates?” Runa asked in one of the videos. Umm, yes, that’s exactly what we are all thinking?!

In the two-part video series, Runa completely debunks our perception of how the recruitment process goes. See what she has to say about what employers are looking for in applicants by scrolling down. And to be fair, it very much makes sense when you think of it. PSThe information you’re about to learn might alter how you prepare for future interviews.

Woman Embarrassed When TSA Checked Her Luggage And Found “An Abundance Of Pancake Mix,” Folks Share Similar Stories

Going through the TSA could be one of the most boring and annoying things you have to go through in an airport. After all, if you know you’re a law-abiding citizen, then you know that this process does not have anything out of the ordinary. You hand them your package, you run through the scanners, and you’re done.

Chelsea could have thought of the same, not until her luggage full of pancake mix made rounds online. In a Tweet, she posted a picture of a TSA officer inspecting her luggage containing pancake mix. She said that she apologized to the officer for such bizarre content, but the latter just brushed it off, saying, “Never apologize for being who you are.”
