How Interviewers Know When to Hire you in 90 Seconds by Jorgen Sundberg

How Interviewers Know When to Hire You in 90 Seconds [INFOGRAPHIC]


We can’t get enough about the art of interviewing in these times. We all fret job interviews and prepare as much as possible but there is little way of predicting their outcomes.

Well at least we have some cool stats in this infographic complied by our friends at Come Recommended <> :

*     33% of bosses know within the first 90 seconds of an interview whether they will hire someone

*     Having little to no knowledge of the company is the most common mistake made during interviews (see: How To Plan Ahead for the Interview <> )

*     67% of bosses say that failure to make eye contact is a common nonverbal mistake

*     When meeting new people, 55% of the impact comes from the way the person dresses, acts and walks through the door

*     65% of bosses indicate that clothes could be a deciding factor between two almost-identical candidates (see: What To Wear To An Interview <> )

*     The number one question most likely to be asked is: “Tell me about yourself”

*     The number one most common mistake at a job interview is: failing to ask for the job



  1. Thanks for the great and very helpful tips! I can easily believe that most of interviewers can make a decision very quickly and that already after first 90 seconds they know if they will make a job offer or no. The thing is that many job seekers come to a job interview completely unprepared. They don’t know nothing about the company and their resumes aren’t good enough. Make sure to have a good resume when you go to the job interview! If you don’t know how to write one, check top resume writers reviews and use a professional service.

  2. Wow, great article! I think that you easily can get a job at the writing services like this one professional cv writing services very easy cuz your writings skills are just fantastic! Just try it and good luck!
