Ten popular reasons that prevent job applicants from receiving offers.
By Ken Sundheim
While there are hundreds of reasons why job interviews don't go as well as they could, some are more common than others. Though, contrary to popular belief, not all outcomes are the interviewer’s fault, nor are the outcomes always in the interviewer’s control. Here are ten popular reasons that prevent job applicants from receiving offers:
1. The interviewee has not done his or her research on the company
When the interviewee has not done his or her research on the company they are interviewing with, there is virtually no chance they will get the offer. Despite how much the company likes them as a person or how fitting their past experience is, showing a lack of knowledge regarding the company you’re interviewing with results in instant rejection.
2. There is a disconnect in personalities between the interviewer and interviewee
It’s not uncommon for the personalities of the interviewer and interviewee to clash. While the most successful people learn how to get along with others, sometimes it simply doesn't work out.
