Job seeking process can become really exhausting when you've been seeking for a job for many months and still have no offers. If you’ve been at it awhile, try reading the signals you’ve been getting from prospective employers to see what, if anything, is going wrong. If you’re worried that your job-search approach may have overlooked problems, ask yourself these three questions.
1 — Am I Making My Value Clear?
An interview is not an ordinary conversation where you need to talk just to fill the silence. In every interview your main goal is to sell yourself by proving that you will bring value to the company. Think about every interview you have been to, maybe you didn't make it clear?

Your responsibility during the interview is to sell yourself and that includes carefully tooting your own horn. You may not have had to do much of this in the past, but times have changed. And don’t forget to follow up with a telephone call three or four days after an interview. It’s a great way to reinforce your interest in the job as well as ask a question or two that you may have forgotten to ask. When you give the impression that you are only interested in “what’s in it for me” without regard to what you have to offer, a job opportunity is often lost. The hiring manager wants to know what you can do for him or her. Candidates who fail to establish their worth are quickly eliminated.
