What will you do if you do not get a job offer?

How to Use

Interviewer: What will you do if you do not get a job offer?

Carly: I haven't thought about that. I am generally a positive person, so I assume that I will be able to find a job that is a good fit for me.

Interviewer: But what if you don't get an offer for a while?

Carly: Then, I will keep trying until I do. I will find my weaknesses and I will improve them. I will make myself a better candidate until I get a job. I am not the kind of person who easily gives up.

Interviewer: I get that impression. It doesn't sound like you give up easily.

Carly: I don't. And I think that is what makes me a good saleswoman. If there is something I want, then I keep going after it until I get it. It might sound aggressive, but I think that a tenacious attitude can be an advantage in this line of work.

Interviewer: I agree with you. I have worked in sales for over 20 years, and I can definitely say that it is more effective to be aggressive than to be passive.
