As 2017 gets underway, thousands of people are starting fresh and preparing for job interviews.
And while interviews might seem easy enough to some people, it's often the simplest things that completely ruin their chances.
Now, a number of amused employers have taken to social media to reveal the things interviewees said that stopped them getting the job.
One of the things that irritated employers the most was the use of slang in formal interviews.
'Interviewee said her Microsoft Excel skills were "on fleek" in an interview. You are interviewing at a professional organisation. Don't use slang and pop culture vocabulary,' a frustrated employer wrote on Reddit.
'Yes I know what on fleek means. But I'm trying to employ the best. The professional world is not charity. I don't owe you a job just because you have a piece of paper.'
Others were shocked by some of the skills listed by their potential employees.
'This one didn't quite make it to the interview stage, but I once received a resume from a candidate who listed "excellent profreading" in her "skills" section,' a manager wrote.
Others said interviewees requested triple pay, multiple assistants, refused criminal record checks and smoked during Skype interviews.
Some also asked whether their partners could attend the interviews with them and asked whether the company did drug testing... as one of their first questions.
'When asked why they wanted to work in this industry, the answer was "why not?"' An amused manager wrote.
'They then gave the same answer when asked why they wanted to work for us rather than a competitor.'
Another was shocked by a potential flight attendant's honesty.
'Came to the end of the interview with one woman and asked "why do you really want to be a flight attendant",' she wrote.
'Woman sighed loudly and said "I just love pilots!"'
Other frustrations included people lying on their resumes, being late, interrupting the interviewer, bringing pets to the interview and calling the boss names like 'doll' and 'honey.'
