Believe it or not, there a number of ways you can get your foot into a door at a company. Let's say your initial contact with the employer was through human resources. This is a great way to get your foot in the door, but it doesn't get you to the people who make the final hiring decision.

Consider reaching out to professionals who work in the department you're trying to land a job with. Connect with them on LinkedIn or email them with questions you have about the position and learn more about the company. If you make a good impression, this is a great way to move your name to the top of the list of candidates to consider.

You could also make the decision to forget about the interview and move forward with the rest of your job search. Regardless of how you're feeling about the interview, don't give up hope just yet.
