Not responding promptly or seeming inflexible when setting up an interview may jeopardize getting the job, job search consultant Miriam Salpeter writes in this blog post. Also, be careful to follow any instructions the interviewer may send in an e-mail, she advises. "If the employer asks you to respond with several dates and times, and you send a quick note with one date you're free, it's likely you've already told the employer you can't follow instructions and you're not attentive to details, no matter what you claim on your resume. Don't think they didn't notice," Salpeter writes.
