19 Employers Who Share How Candidates Flunked Their Job Interviews

They left a strong impression… and failed the interview.

Needless to say, a lot of people feel very nervous during interviews. They want to present themselves with the best and give great answers. It’s normal – you’ve got your job at stake, and you’re getting interviewed by possibly your future boss. You don’t know them and any mistake can give a bad impression of yourself to them.

But these stories are just out of this world: these people are looking for jobs, yet they don’t even recognize the basic decency to be fully clothed while doing so! We’re not joking – from not wearing a top to asking for a smoke break in the middle of an interview, here are stories from employers on how they fail candidates during their interview.

Forbes shares some tips on how you can nail your interview. Or at least, how to mess up as bad as you think you did before this! First is to remember that “you’ve already done better than 80% of candidates by landing an interview.” If you were called amongst hundreds of applications for an interview, you know that the employers already have you in a positive light.

When your employer told you to ‘tell me about yourself,’ remember to only pick the parts of your life story that leads to the moment you’re sitting in that room. What was the show that stirred your passion for art? When did you decide this is the career that you want? What kind of effort have you been putting in before you apply here? Talk about your skills, but don’t go overboard: HR professionals don’t like candidates who are too-confident.

Weakness! A lot of people trip when told to talk about their weaknesses. Who doesn’t have a weakness? The key problem with weakness is that many people don’t think about pointing how they are dealing with it. Okay, you have a time management problem, so have you been trying to work on a schedule? Everyone has their own problem, but this question is more about how you identify and address it to be an issue in your work later.

The big gist of a good interview is to speak as if you know you are the best candidate for that position and you’ll work hard on it. That is how you’ll be able to come up with answers for questions like ‘where do you see yourself in x years’ and ‘why you deserve this position.’
