10 Surefire Ways To Fail An Interview

It’s easy to fail a job interview. There’s really nothing to it, to be honest. Show up 20 minutes late with parsley in your teeth and a bunch of offensive jokes that are largely about human feces and you’ve just failed. Sometimes people want to fail on purpose because unemployment is a cushy situation, and sometimes people just fail because they’ve overlooked basic interview protocol.

Whether or not you want to fail a job interview, is your business. Either way, here are 10 things that are bound to make sure you never get that job for which you just interviewed.

    If you’re going to make up a slideshow about things not to do with snarky comments about each, try to use the correct version of “you’re”, not “your”. [slide 8]

    Thanks Elizabeth! “You’re” feedback is really appreciated!

    It might be good to get some basics down. For example, in addition to the error pointed out by Elizabeth, there is also the wrong version of “to” in the phrase “seem to eager.”

    Gee, thanks, Tom!
    As I pointed out in the post, no one is perfect! Thanks for bringing to my attention that I should get some basics down – obviously, I didn’t know the difference between “too” and “to” – but now I do!
