Hiring managers have to figure out how to narrow the field to the most qualified individuals. 

If you want to stay in the running, don’t get taken out early by committing one of these interview process “sins” that cover communication pitfalls, forgetting to bring the energy to the interviews, and cringeworthy interview outfit choices.

Avoid these common red flags, and you’ll be sure to go far in the interview process—and maybe find yourself with a new job offer on a robust career path.

If a hiring manager reads your email, they should get the impression that you are articulate, can get to the point, and communicate clearly, yet in an actionable way, because you respect their time is valuable.

4. Frequent Job Hopping.
