11 INTERVIEW blunders: That is why so many good people don't get HIRED

This is why so many good people don't get HIRED. To start:
  1. Candidates do not get paid for their time.
  2. Interviewers do. It is considered OK to waste candidate’s time, but it is not.
  3. Interviewers come to interviews unprepared and read resumes in front of candidates.
  4. They do not explain what the job is about, what it is like working there, advantages and potentials.
  5. They ask questions like “where do you yourself in 5 years”. Instead they should explain where they see their company in 6 months.
  6. The process takes too long, too many interviewers, too many rounds of interviews.
  7. Interviewers ask the same questions over and over again, making interviews look like interrogation.
  8. Consider paying travel expenses. It is not OK to be generous with someone else's money.
  9. They are looking for MiniMes. Do not hire people to work for you. Hire people to work with, people you can learn from, and eager to learn from you.
  10. They try to find only faults in candidates. Nobody is perfect. They are unwilling to take any risks, looking for that perfect candidate to come along.
  11. They don't get back to candidates. It is better to be rejected, than to be left hanging.
Let's stop treating candidates as applicants. Treat them as people, like you want to be treated. Agree ?
