Bad Attitudes Don't Sell

Recently we've had a few candidates come in to meet with us with such doom and gloom attitudes. Maybe they are letting down their guard with their old recruiter friends but seriously, bad attitudes don’t sell.

No matter how awful your day, week, year has been, most people prefer their potential employees – leaders of their company -- to have a positive outlook. I’m not saying you can’t gripe every now and then. Life would not be fun without a few sarcastic comments, like the old saying goes, “If you've got something nasty to say come sit by me.” 

But in an interview, please keep the snarky attitude to yourself.
