Why Interviews Fail

  • Poor Impact Presence – Attire, unshaven, hair-cut
  • Lack of Enthusiasm – Interest in opportunity not relayed, no smile
  • No Specific Examples – Unable to demonstrate previous behaviors, leadership
  • Poor Communication Skills – Eye contact, mumbling, fidgeting
  • Lack of Company/Position Research – No preparation
  • Geographic Limitations – Unwilling to relocate
  • Shift Restricted- Unwilling to work a rotating or off shift
  • No Questions or Improper Questions? – Too much focus on salary and benefits and too little about the job.
  • Late – Be at least 15-20 minutes early

“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”
