Maybe the focus on a candidate’s personality is actually a good thing since 73 percent of hiring managers felt colleges only “somewhat prepare” students for the working world. Their biggest challenge falls into the category of how job seekers present themselves. Many people from hiring teams reported candidates are “unprepared and said they have a “bad attitude” while interviewing.  Read more

Seriously. Read more
