    3 Reasons You Didn't Get The Job, But Were Oh-So-Close  |  Forbes, The Muse              07/07/2017
    How frustrating is it to get to the final round of an interview process, only to find out that
    you were the runner-up? While it might make a lot of people say that you should be
    thrilled you made it that far, the reality is that you didn’t get the job!
 
       1.  The Hiring Manager Decided Not To Hire Anyone
       2.  You Were Qualified - But Something Else Had A Little Something Extra
       3.  You Weren't The Right Fit For The Manager


    6 Reasons You Didn't Get the Job (That No One Will Ever Tell You)  |  TheMuse, Lily Zhang
    
You dressed the part. You told engaging stories. You asked insightful questions. Frankly,
    you nailed the interview, but you didn’t get the job. What gives?
    You can certainly try to ask for feedback after receiving a rejection, but most employers
    probably won’t say much. If they do, it’ll be something fairly generic, along the lines of
    “other qualified candidates.” That, of course, isn’t always the real reason—it’s just that the
    real reason might be a little too awkward to actually say to someone’s face.
  
       1.  You Spoke Funny
       2.  You, Um, Smelled Funny
       3.  You Were Too Eager
       4.  You Were Too Arrogant
       5.  You Didn't Pass the Airport Test
       6.  You Weren't the Internal Candidate They Wanted All Along

    these common interview red flags to weed out bad job offers.
