Not Every Job Candidate Is Perfect

Click through for five tips on overcoming flaws during an interview, as identified by Heather Huhman, writing for Glassdoor.com.

No matter how hard you try, sometimes things just don't go the way you plan. Be it family, work, or education, we're not perfect. Things happen.

Heather Huhman, writing for Glassdoor, points out that "the reality is, nearly every professional has had an experience where they made a mistake or missed a deadline." These flaws can make securing employment more difficult, but by showing how you've improved as a professional and what you've learned from each experience, it is possible to keep past mistakes from ruining your chances for success.

The point of a job interview is to assess your capabilities, as well as your potential. Explaining how you've overcome and moved beyond past difficulties can show a hiring manager that you might be just the right person for the job. In this slideshow, Huhman has identified common flaws job candidates might face and ways to explain them during a job interview.
