Interview Pitfalls (Reasons Why People Don’t Get Hired)

When interviewing for a killer job that you know can propel your career forward it can be nerve-racking unless you’ve done your homework. Either way if you’re unprepared and don’t stick to the basics you could f@#% up the opportunity. There are no second chances so make each interview count. Here are some of the most common pitfalls that may keep job seekers from getting an offer and untimely getting hired in the job they want.

  • Being late for the interview
  • Untidy personal appearance
  • Not doing your homework on the company or person you’re meeting
  • Inability to express information clearly
  • Not answering direct questions
  • Lack of genuine interest or enthusiasm
  • Overconfidence
  • Unwillingness to start at the bottom
  • Negative attitude
  • Smelling of smoke or heavy perfume
  • Lack of eye contact
  • Incomplete or sloppy application
  • Speaking negatively about an ex-employer
  • Making money a priority over the job opportunity
