10 Reasons You Are Not Acing That Interview!

posted by Ariel - 

Josh and I know it's difficult to find a job here in Asheville.  So, we thought this could help. 

A new SURVEY asked a bunch of hiring managers for the top things that negatively impact your chances of landing a job. 

 Here are the top ten things that can hurt you . . .

 

1.  Showing up late for your interview.  93% said it hurts your chances.  And it bothers women more than men.

2.  Whining or complaining about something, 92%. 

3.  Showing a lack of preparation, 89%. 

4.  Bad-mouthing a former boss, or a former company, 88%. 

5.  Making a bad mistake on your resumé or cover letter.  Like a spelling error, 86% 

6.  Using broken English or too much slang in your interview, 84%. 

7.  Asking for way more money than the job would normally pay, 84%. 

8.  Being underqualified, 80%.  So 20% said it DOESN'T hurt your chances.

 9.  Answering their questions incorrectly, 77%. 

10.  Not making enough eye contact, 76%.  A few more that just missed the top ten were bragging . . . rambling . . . dressing too casual for your interview . . . and using a gimmick, like showing up with a gift.
