Interviewers' 7 Biggest Pet Peeves

Interviewers' 7 Biggest Pet Peeves

Communication: Too Much Can Be Too Much

“Candidates who ramble are the ones who get to me,” says Dotti Bousquet of Resource Group Staffing in West Hartford, Connecticut. “Last week, I was interviewing a candidate and asked her one question. The candidate talked and talked and talked for 45 minutes straight. I was unable to stop her. I had to say, ‘Let’s wrap this up,’ and I stood up while she continued to talk. I walked to the door of the office and opened it. She left, but continued to talk while walking out the door."

The lesson? “Candidates should stay focused, and answer the question asked – in less than two to three minutes," advises Bousquet.
