8. Your enthusiasm really lacked enthusiasm
Believe it or not, when recruiters and HR pros are consulted, they state that, aside from actually being prepared for the interview, most candidates simply don’t show much enthusiasm about getting the job. The job hunt can be extremely grinding and frustrating but you need to put your game face on when you go to an interview. Also, the interviewer was not likely thrilled that you didn’t do any due diligence on the company. Most get asked why they have chosen this particular company and most candidates just sit there with a dazed look on their face. Get fired up and know the company you hope to work for.
