Things That Hurt Your Chances At Getting The Job!

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

And according to the results, the most important thing you can do is show up to your interview ON TIME.  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.  (SimplyHired.com)
