How to fail an interview: research evidence

Anthony Haynes

Anthony Haynes writes: Dr Janina Steinmetz of the Cass Business School has recently published research on how applicants fail interviews.

In an article published on The Conversation (8 January 2019) Dr Steinmetz writes:

“imagine you get to the interview and, despite being highly qualified and motivated, you end up not getting the job offer. In spite of your best efforts to made a good impression, the chances are you made one of these four common errors: a failure of perspective taking, narcissism, hubris and humble bragging”.

The remainder of the article (which draws on her paper published in Basic and Applied Psychology) makes specific what each of these errors consists of.
