Good list and I agree with most.

The unwillingness to relocate is an issue if it is required for the job obviously, but I don't think be should be just asked to relocate whenever the company decides it is best. Relocation is a major decision and one that is very difficult for many to do for many reasons. Regardless, if a company wants someone to relocate, the company should be willing to put up some, if not all (depending on the situation) of the cost. And that cost can be quite substantial if you own a home and have to sell.

Being unwilling to start at the bottom is also a good reason why you may not get hired. But again, it depends. If you have 10 years experience, are you expected to start at the bottom just because you are going to a new company? Yes, you need to prove yourself at the new place, but I don't think the bottom is a fair place to do it. I was recently told, that I could probably work for a company if I were willing to start at the bottom. I have over 8 years experience. Why do I want to start over at the bottom? I have put in my time at the bottom. I don't necessarily expect to be made director or anything, but I do expect some respect.

Otherwise, all good comments on the list and all very valid reasons for not getting employed.

A lot of reasons and all good...
I don't quite agree with reason # 3. "Over emphasis on money: interested only in best dollar offer." I could be a reason not get hired but one doesn't want to work for free. If you know your price stick to it, otherwise you will be underpaid.

Default Everyone Learns Differently...

Yes, excellent advise and suggestions to share about interviewing success. The only problem is that there is a lot to remember. People tend to learn in many ways, so don't feel pressures. There many methods to learn to be successful in an interview. A individual can learn via the web, books, articles, course or in-person coaching. I would recommend choosing a method that works best for you.

Overall, the interview takes practise, so whatever method you choose, I would suggest conducting a mock interview with a friend, family member or in front of the mirror before the "big" day.

As mentioned in previous discussions, I have been told about a job prepration company known as HRinmotion.com by other human resources professionals. They provide all the tools to help prepare individuals for the job. The tools can be online articles, books, articles, course or in person coaching. Unfortunately I do not know of any other companies, since I have only recommended HRinmotion and they seem to do a good job with all the positive feedback I receive. My theory is, if you find a good service provider why look for others.

Best of luck!
