    “We take notice when an applicant references our company values.”

    Really? Browsing your website and memorizing that PR drivel is impressive? Is it an indication that you’ve found an unquestioning yes man and team player?

      Probably more impressive than the applicant not even knowing what the company does and not taking a few minutes to do some research on what the company does. When I am interviewing applicants, there is no bigger turn off to me than the applicant having no clue what the organization does and not listening during my introduction of the company/position they are applying for.
