Good morning. It’s Wednesday December 20, 2017 and this is your first early morning Jobs briefing!

Cyn 3
is brought to you this week from Mary Pinto Meyer, Regional HR Director at Access Intelligence. Last week we listed three things Pinto-Meyer felt were looked for in a qualified candidate. They were presentation and professionalism, adaptability and ambition. This week we’ve followed up with her again as to what she thinks
a candidate does during an interview that could be indicative of not getting hired –
  • poor presentation of previous employer (we know not all work situations are ideal, but it raises issues about loyalty),
  • focusing on hours or compensation before it is presented to the candidate (especially for more seasoned folks),
  • not being in the know for the role for which they are interviewing and/or have not done some type of research on the company.
