Enthusiasm, energy, I could use some advice, opinions on this subject.  So let me first explain the situation. Well let me tell you a little about myself.  I would describe myself as clam, down to earth individual. I don’t say much unless am talking about something am interested in.  You can just say that am an introvert kind of a person.

Now I’ve been applying to jobs here and there.  I’ve interviewed with this one company four time for different positions. Two of them dealt with customer service and working the phone and the others dealt with content moderation. The last interview the person who set-up the interview told me the company wouldn’t move forward with me because I have ” no energy” plus lack of customer service experience. The customer service I get, but the “no energy” am just not sure what to make about it. Have any of you ever been told or told someone that they displayed “no energy” show lack of enthusiasm?

Am not sure how to process that. Am really not a outspoken individual.  I go to these job interviews, yes am nervous, but am also clam. Maybe my voice doesn’t project with high energy. It hard to try to be something that you are not.

I found this one article online that best explain my situation am in a little bit better.

  1. I am so sorry to hear that the interviewers said you had no energy D: It sounds so harsh and hurtful on your end. Maybe they wanted to see a loud extroverted personality, all bubbly and happy. This is such an extroverted world we live in, geared towards extroverted and I think many forget that being calm and quiet is a personality trait. Hopefully you will find a role that will value you for who you are at some point. You do comes across as very thoughtful and insightful – two very important skills you need on any job. I’m sure there will be a role for you when the opportunity presents itself.

    1. Hi Mabel, That is something I would have never thought I would hear. After doing some internet research and guess it does happen. Maybe employers haven’t gotten the memo that a personality trait and that how some people are. Kind of reminds me of when I was in college and people would say I need to loosen up or have a drink. Well hopeful my other job interview will have a different outcome.
