"You're too quiet."


I am curious if anyone has been through this too. But, lately, I have been on interviews and I keep getting rejected by employers because "I'm too quiet." I'm really confused. I don't get why I keep getting turned down because of this. I just keep hearing the same words, "You are too quiet." And then they say I wouldn't be a fit for the company. And the interview ends. It's like they want someone very social and extroverted.

Has anyone ever had this happen to them? Any advice?

I've heard that, or something similar far to often in my life. Although I don't think I've ever been turned down for an interview because of it. At least that I know of. I suppose it can depend on what type of job that you're interviewing for, but if doesn't interfere with you're ability to do that job, it really shouldn't matter. Although sadly, it does to most people. I usually have prepared answers to the common questions they ask in interviews, and maybe a few things that 'small talk' about. I mean, nothing written out, just mental bullets points to get me through that part of the process. Mustering up whatever confidence you have, or that you are able to fake will go a long way as well. It's not much, but I hope that helps you a little. Good luck.
I've been interviewing for a variety of jobs from pet related jobs to retail jobs. Seems like being social is an all around issue. That's a good idea to use bullets point and have answers prepared to get through interviews. I will have to remember that next time. I also think the confidence point is a good idea as well. I know that's the hardest to convey for me, but I will also try that. Thanks for tips. I appreciate it!

I am, I have freelance job. However, it doesn't bring in enough money, so I'm looking for something else to do along side it. And yes, they really did.
