    Six out of every 10 jobseekers have come back from job interviews with a different image of the companies they applied to than before.

    Some 63.1 percent said their impression of companies has changed, according to a poll of 1,683 jobseekers by employment portal Job Korea.

    Some 52.9 percent of them came back from interviews with a worse image of their putative employers, compared to 47.1 percent who had a better image. The biggest determinant was the attitude interviewers took.

    Respondents were allowed to give multiple answers.

    Asked why they came away with a better image, 54.4 percent cited interviewers' hospitable attitude and favorable response, followed by 45.8 percent who said they were impressed by company facilities and the working environment.

    That was also the major reason for those who ended up with a worse image, with 52.3 percent citing interviewers' inhospitable attitude and unfavorable response.
