The Number One Statement To Generate The Job Offer

So what is the very best statement you can make to generate the job offer? Simple. Ask for the job:

"I feel my background and experience are a good fit for this position and I am very interested. I am ready to consider your best offer!"

Want to make it an ever stronger statement? Replace the statement "I am ready to consider your best offer" with a statement and a question:

"I would very much like to work here. May I have the job?"

Okay, it may sound a little bold, but remember: it is far and away the number one way to generate a job offer. It has been proven again and again that by asking for the job, you will greatly increase your odds of receiving a job offer.

The prerequisites to this approach are threefold:

  1. You have already sold them on you as a candidate.
  2. They have already sold you on working for them (and hopefully it shows in your passion and enthusiasm for the job).
  3. You are talking to the person who makes the hiring decision.

Okay, hold on, you might be saying. I can see having the first two, but how do I know who makes the hiring decision? Simple. Ask. "Who will be making the hiring decision for this position?" Ask HR, ask the managers, ask a peer level. Any of them can tell you. You just need to ask.

Then meet with that person last and tell them you want the job. Make life easy for them. If the are sitting on the fence, this will bring them over to your side.

This is not the time to be shy. If you want to get married, you must eventually pop the question! If you are ready, ask them. Do not wait for them to ask you. This book is about breaking the rules in a positive way. And this is one of the best ways to break the rules and generate a job offer.
