  • The 11types of candidates that show up to an interview
  • 1. The Eager Beaver • Gets to the interview 30+ minutes early • Has questions pre-typed out • Knows every employee by name already (After studying the website)
  • 2. The Unprofessional • Shows up to the interview looking disheveled • 3 to 30 minutes late • Doesn’t ask any questions
  • 3. The Referral • Is the best friend/sister/girlfriend of a coworker • Already knows the questions you are going to ask • Clearly was coached by an internal employee
  • 4. The Stacked Resume “Tell me more about how you started a company in college, graduated early, and then built a village in Guatemala?”
  • 5. The Loiterer • Asks for another tour of the office “for memory sake” • Talks to an employee about the Hawaiian calendar on their desk for 30 minutes • Returns an hour after the interview and asks where the restroom is
  • 6. The Talker • Rambles on about previous jobs until you cut him off • Asks for water due to dry mouth • You start to daydream about what you are going to eat for dinner while he’s explaining his experience with Microsoft Excel for the 5th time
  • 7. The potential serial killer “I can’t believe she related slaying the competitors to killing animals when she was little”
  • 8. The apologizer “I’m sorry, I’m really nervous” “I’m sorry, that answer was horrible” “I’m sorry for taking so long on that question”
  • 9. The bad hand shaker There’s nothing worse than a limp and slightly damp handshake.
  • 10. The Thankful Candidate • Hugs you after the interview • Sends you a thank you card • Sends you a thank you email • Sends you flowers…
  • 11. The Perfect Hire. • Nails every interview question • A flawless culture fit • Can start Monday.
