Being in recruitment, we would help guide a candidate through the interview process so that they have the best chance of securing that next great job.
However, it is quite easy to blow your chances at getting the job, by doing any one of the 10 actions mentioned.
What are your thoughts? Is there anything that should be added to the list?
Unfortunate Things Job-Seekers Do 1. They confirm an interview date, miss the interview, are rescheduled for a new interview date and then send an email message ten minutes before the interview to say that they forgot they had a pressing appointment today and can’t make it. 2. They show up to a job interview unprepared, with no understanding of the company’s business, without having formulated a single question and dressed unsuitably for an interview. When they sit down, they ask “Remind me which job ad I responded to?” 3. They do not mention during two interviews and three phone calls with your firm that they have a three-week vacation coming up in two weeks and won’t be able to start the job for at least a month and a half.
