Another big reason a person would not be hired during the interview process would be not being punctual. Being late to the interview shows that you don't value the opportunity and your interviewer may find it disrespectful as well. A personal rule of thumb is to always arrive 15 minutes early. That gives you time to sit down, relax, and mentally prepare yourself for the interview, while also giving your interviewer time to finish any task they may be working on and get ready for the interview.

Hi tim

I recently have the opportunity to interview some candidates, i must remark im not in the human resources department, im a network consulting engineer and i was in charge of interviewing candidates that already pass that filter, so one thing that i really focus is in the attitude of the candidate if it came to strong and we feel it did not match our company values it was a deal breaker, and also if the candidate was the opposite meaning shy, does not talk or participate too much, then it was also a deal breaker.

Jessica’s Answer

The interview is very important and because it's very important you should be on your P's and Q's to sell yourself to the company. A reason for a person not to be hired would be lack of knowledge on the company, not dressed appropriately, slouching while in the interview, having your cell phone go off while in interview, not answering the questions appropriately, not telling the truth about what's on your resume. Those are just a few to name.

In addition to Jessica's EXCELLENT answer, consider this: the interview is also YOUR CHANCE to ask questions. This will make you look more interested in the job, which will make you look like a better candidate. You will also find out more information about the job and the company! Take some time to ask good questions! (An aside: the interview process is not merely an employer's chance to find out about you. It's also your chance to find out about them!) Christopher Lupone
