ADD --- GIVING TOO MUCH INFORMATION – OFF SUBJECT------- TRYING TOO HARD – NO PERSONAL the candidate described &quot;the team's successes&quot; and &quot;our projects,&quot; never explaining what he himself contributed to the group efforts. Suddenly the interview was over, and so were his prospects of winning the CFO job. &quot;There was no 'I' in this company's vocabulary,&quot; says Clothier, describing his friend's previous employer. But bringing that focus to a job interview — with a company that had a more entrepreneurial corporate culture — turned out to be a mistake. &quot;He should have been prepared to describe the teamwork in terms of his leadership and specific contributions,&quot; reasons Clothier. The candidate wasn't &quot;mentally prepared for selling himself, and fell back on the nomenclature of his company.&quot;
