Going on a job interview knowing who will get the job

  1. 0
    Hello there, has this happened to anyone? I'm a correctional nurse at the County level and have been in corrections for 2 years. I applied for an internal job this past week for which I interview next week but everyone in my office knows who the job is going to. Does this happen a lot? I'm just hurt about this and don't even want to go and interview even though in my heart I know i'm the better candidtae for this job...but maybe my boss has other plans.

    Thanks for listening

    It's happened to me once before, but I looked upon it as interview experience and just went along. It was actually less stressful knowing I had no chance at the job and I think I interviewed better for that!

    It gives you the opportunity to get your name out there as someone who is interested in whatever you are interviewing for. And don't ever be 100% sure that someone already has the job in the bag. The person may decide not to take the offer, may not like it once orientation is through--lots of things will and could change. So wholeheartedly interview--you never know where it could lead.
