As you interview a lackluster applicant for a position, you should try to identify what makes them a bad candidate. Some jobseekers misrepresent their work experience or education or overstate their skills on their resumes. Others may not be able to answer simple interview questions. No matter what makes a candidate less than an ideal fit for an available position, an interviewer should be able to determine why he or she is not a good choice.
Hiring managers and recruiters may be able to improve hiring procedures based on experience with bad candidates. While misrepresentation can be difficult to detect in the earliest stages of the hiring process, you might identify a few peculiarities to look out for or inquire into as soon as possible. If you are able to identify other red flags you missed, you may be able to eliminate more bad candidates prior to the interview stage.
