    The article is excellent and educative. In additon to the reasons mentioned the follwing points weigh for rejection.
    1.Too much interest on perks and salary than the type of work, work culture and work environment.

    2.Overconfidence and thinking that they know more than the interviewer.

    3.For the points that are not known, resorting to bluffing rather than plainly admitting that they do not know.

    Hi ~ santosh ..

    Do you know ?
    How many applicants have I submitted .. till now.

    I think it is .. at least over 100. 🙂

    But, only 5 or 7 interview I have got till now.

    It means even getting interveiw chance is not easy in my country, Korea.

    For making up these tendency, some of Korea’s job seekers and students are enrolled in interview study caffe.

    Interview study caffe is nothing but it is just kind of social gathering through internet community.

    Like santosh you do here, they gather togather naturally and check each other’s applicant and praticing virtual interview for giving more good impresson to interveiwers.

    Anyway, thank you for sharing this good article with me.

    Tomorrow, I will have a one day vacation. 🙂

    I just wanted to reprot this.

    Have a nice day and ..weekends.

    Best Regards,

    Junhie, Han
