Rejection - (no, not that kind)

Eleven Reasons for Rejection

Note these may apply to both full time employment opportunities and project/consulting work.

1. Poor attitude. Many candidates come across as arrogant. While employers can afford to be self-centered, candidates cannot.

2. Appearance. Many candidates do not consider their appearance as much as they should. First impressions are quickly made in the first three minutes. Review the appearance checklist.

3. Lack of research. It's obvious when candidates haven't learned about the job, company or industry prior to the interview. Visit the library or use the Internet to research the company, and then talk with friends, peers and other professionals about the opportunity before each meeting.

4. Not having questions to ask. Asking questions shows your interest in the company and the position. Prepare a list of intelligent questions in advance.

5. Not readily knowing the answers to interviewer's questions. Anticipate and rehearse answers to tough questions about your background, such as a recent termination or an employment gap. Practicing with your spouse or a friend before the interview will help you to frame intelligent responses.

6. Relying too much on resumes. Employers hire people, not paper. Although a resume can list qualifications and skills, it's the interview dialogue that will portray you as a committed, responsive team player.

7. Too much humility. Being conditioned not to brag, candidates are sometimes reluctant to describe their accomplishments. Explaining how you reach difficult or impressive goals helps employers understand what you can do for them.

8. Not relating to employers' needs. A list of accomplishments means squat if you can't relate them to a company's requirements. Reiterate your skills and convince the employer that you can "do the same for them."

9. Handling salary issues ineptly. Candidates often ask about salary and benefit packages too early. If they believe an employer is interested, they may demand inappropriate amounts and price themselves out of the jobs. Candidates who ask for too little undervalue themselves or appear desperate.

10. Lack of career direction. Job hunters who aren't clear about their career goal often can't spot or commit to appropriate opportunities. Not knowing what you want wastes everyone's time.

11. Job shopping. Some applicants, particularly those in certain high-tech, sales and marketing fields, will admit they're just "shopping" for opportunities and have little intention of changing jobs. This wastes time and leaves a bad impression with employers they may need to contact in the future.

Necktie depends on industry, country, your style and age , the level of the job you apply and of course on the company.
Many IT-companies here in Switzerland want you dressed well on the job interview, even they do not require the necktie if you are young. Older (35+) appliants are nearly alsmost required to wear a necktie on the interview, I've never seen anything else.
This does not mean that the dresscode within the company is this strict. I've seend companies that "require" suits and neckties on appliance but within, everyone wears old t-shirts and jeans, even the bosses, cause they're into IT, so they're cool by design ;-)
Maybe you can try to find out what's the modus operandi for the interviews, but a suits just fits well (if it's a good one, never go with a cheap one that looks like old bags full of rugs).
I would generally recomend a suit, or at least a good pant and a shirt. long-sleeved when you wand, but short if it's summertime. The jacket depends on your age and style. If you are very sportive, it might look like Hulk Hogan, so consider that. But if you're skinny, a suit makes you look regular. Remember, the suit was invented to make an equal apperance for all worksmen and distinguish them all equally from the nobility.
