  • Interviewers are Prepared - This is certainly not always the case, actually they may not even have had a chance to look over your qualifications.
  • They Want More Information - If you are applying for a job that requires an artistic portfolio then they may want to see your work, otherwise it is likely they do not want to be weighed down with extra paperwork.
  • Employers Want a Set Answer - When it comes to interview questions it is more a matter of how you address the question than if you get the question right.
  • Skills over Looks - Whether you like it or not the way you look forms a valuable and lasting impression.
  • Qualifications Always Win - This is not true, a lot of employers would rather have a hard worker with a good disposition then someone with the perfect qualifications.
