Interviewers' 7 Biggest Pet Peeves

Communication: Too Little Leaves Interviewers Exasperated

“My number one interviewing pet peeve is an applicant who won’t talk,” says Steve Jones, a manager of client services at a software company in Dallas. “I try to ask open-ended questions and prod them for longer answers, but no luck. I’ve even mentioned to a few that I need more information so I can get an idea of where they’re coming from – still no luck. I always end the interview saying, ‘Now it’s your turn to ask questions,’ and still no luck; they don’t have any. Oh well – next!””

“Help me out here,” says Jones. “Come prepared to answer questions and talk about yourself.”
