Hiring Managers Share Their Top 15 “Deal Killers”!

After living and breathing recruiting for 21 years now,  ISCs team of executive recruiters thought it would be useful information to put together a list from hiring managers of ‘Top 15 Deal Breakers’, that put a candidate out of the running during the interview process.

We asked 1k experienced hiring managers to share their thoughts and have compiled the results below.



Not only is this valuable information for candidates who may be inadvertently shooting themselves in the foot without realizing it, it is also good information for hiring managers to see what their peers consider valid reasons to remove a potential candidate from consideration.

Are any of these surprising to you?
