Why do job applicants fail? This was a theme of our first live Interviewing Course.
There is a multitude of reasons, and many relate to the job interview. Let’s look at the top three:
- Botched the first interview. In case you do not know, the first interview is your resume. The three most common failings are using a generic resume, failure to communicate value, and a lack of quantifiable achievements.
- Misguided priorities. Applicants think the recruitment process is about them, not about meeting the needs of the employer
- Poor preparation. Studies report this is a common complaint among recruiters. Applicants do not sell their value. They just answer questions.
