Manners Matter in the Interview Process

Is common courtesy essential in the interview process? Do manners matter? The obvious answer is yes. Yet recently, I have witnessed a number of candidates that seem to think otherwise. Despite the economic climate candidates are still no-showing interviews, blowing off client requested tests and not returning calls. I am left wondering….do candidates really think this is acceptable?

People don’t blow off doctor, hair, or even car maintenance appointments for fear that they will be charged. Yet, many don’t think it is a big deal to no-show an interview when the consequences are much graver.

Here are a few reasons why this is poor business etiquette

Manners always matter.

Manners Hygiene "Soft Skills" are just as important as the hard skills required for the job...Sometimes they outweigh the latter and actually get you the job even if you may require a little training.
And why candidates still do the "no call no show" boggles my mind!
