well mylot family .I went to an interview an hour ago and guess what .I am qualified for the job and yet the span of time i render for a company is not enough to the company that i am applying.And he ask me the question convince me to hire you.I just told him i am qualified for the job base on my training and work before.And if given the chance to be a part of their company i am willing to sign a contract specifying the span of time that i need to stay in the company.And yet he doesn't seem to be convince.If you were interviewed how do you answer this question.They are looking for a customer service.I work for a call center before

Most employers will not only look at your qualifications, but they also take into consideration how many jobs you've had and how long you worked at each. They normally don't want to invest time and money in someone who is not going to stay with the company for a short period of time. Since you don't really say, did you only spend weeks or months at any one job? If that is the case, then an employer would question whether or not you are going to stay with their company for any length of time. When you stated that you would sign a contract specifying how long you 'need' to stay with their company, that sounds more like you only would stay however long the specified time was and then quit? I think you might have been more convincing if you had said the you really wanted to work for this company, and would be willing to sign a contract (leaving out the 'time I need to' part). You could have also stated that you like working with people, and do so in a professional manner.

yes i don't them also that as long the company needs me i would definitely stay but he was so worried with my call center back ground i think.As we all know call center hire now fire now you cannot stay there for long if you do not have the xx factor that they are looking for
