Earlier this week, my colleague over at our job seeker blog, The Work Buzz, Kaitlin Madden, told me about an article she’s working on about what constitutes a deal breaker for hiring managers or recruiters. So I thought I’d help her out by asking for your feedback…
What do you consider a deal breaker…during an interview? On a resume or in a cover letter? During salary negotiations?
That is, what’s the one thing a candidate can do – or, rather, has done – to immediately take him or herself out of the running for consideration?
Got any stories to share? Maybe a few words of wisdom? (It could end up working out in your favor…After all, the more we educate job seekers on the behavior that they should avoid – or altogether abolish – the more head- and heartache it’ll save everyone in the end…)
Please give us your thoughts in the comments below! (Got something to say, but don’t want to leave it as a comment? Feel free to email me your stories instead!)Related
