Consultant Charlie Balmer shares over at LifeHacker the reasons that he doesn’t hire people when they come in for an interview. Charlie writes:
When you first walk in to my office, I am expecting you to be one of the 99%+ people who I know I won’t hire in the first 5 minutes. I am hoping I will be proven wrong, because I really want to hire you and be done interviewing. Unfortunately, most people looking for jobs don’t deserve them.
Here are some of the reasons:
1. You send me a stupidly long resume
2. You can’t tell me why you like your current job
3. You have no career plans or vision
4. You have no skills
5. You answer my questions with conjecture.
Then Charlie goes on to tell you how to win with your interview.
