    Thumbs up 11 reasons for rejection in the interview

    Guys,

    This article is for freshers..........

    11 REASONS FOR REJECTION IN THE INTERVIEW

    1. Poor attitude.

    Many candidates come across as arrogant. While employers can afford to be self-centered, candidates cannot.

    2. Appearance.
    Many candidates do not consider their appearance as much as they should. First impressions are quickly made in the first three to five minutes.


    3. Lack of research

    It's obvious when candidates haven't learned about the job, company or industry prior to the interview.


    4. Not having questions to ask
    Asking questions shows your interest in the company and the position. Prepare a list of intelligent questions in advance.


    5. Not readily knowing the answers to interviewers' questions

    Anticipate and rehearse answers to tough questions about your background, such as recent termination or an employment
    gap. Practicing with your spouse or a friend before the interview will help you to frame intelligent responses.

    6. Relying too much on resumes

    Employees hire people, not paper. Although a resume can list qualifications and skills, it's the interview dialogue that will portray you as a committed, responsive team player.
    7. Too much humility
    Being conditioned not to brag, candidates are sometimes reluctant to describe their accomplishments. Explaining how you reach difficult or impressive goals helps portray you as a committed, responsive team player.

    8. Not relating skills to employers' needs.

    A list of sterling accomplishments means little if you can't relate them to a company's requirements. Reiterate your skills and convince the employer that you can "do the same for them".

    9. Handling salary issues ineptly.
    Candidates often ask about salary and benefit packages too early. If they believe an employer is interested, they may demand inappropriate amounts and price themselves out of the jobs. Candidates who ask for too little undervalue themselves or appear desperate.

    10. Lack of career direction.
    Job hunterswho aren't clear about their career goals often can't spot or commit to appropriate opportunities. Not knowing what you want wastes everybody's time.

    11. Job shopping

    Some applicants, particularly those in certain high-tech, sales and marketing fields, will admit they're just "shopping" for opportunities and have little intention of changing jobs. This wastes time and leaves a bad impression with employers they may need to contact in the future.


    Thanks & Regards,
    Riju.

    Be prepared for interview likely question. Homework and practice makes you perfect in the interview. Try to answer for the interview question at the most; if you are not all comfortable with the question, you can say honestly that you don’t know rather than blinking and giving irrelevant
