Why didn't I get the job?

The question that everyone asks when they get passed up for the job they interviewed for, why didn't I get the job?  Well I recently read an article on a news website that was titled, Top Reasons You Don't Get Hired.  There are of course several reasons someone doesn’t land a job that they interviewed for, but the reason that you can prevent are listed in this slideshow article.  They are all common sense things, which hopefully you do without even thinking about since 90% of them are all common courtesy!  Poor personal appearance, lack of interest in the job you are applying for, lack of confidence, sloppy application, and failing to make eye contact with the person that is interviewing you are a few that you should just do as a common courtesy.  If you don't do these things then maybe you shouldn't be working.  I think those are all very much common sense things to do when you are interviewing for a potential job.  The way the job market is, you should make the best of every opportunity.  If you think you are going to fail you probably will fail.  Next time you have that big interview don't forget those few little things that were mentioned, and then you won't have to ask yourself, why didn't I get that job!
