A new poll by software provider Bullhorn found 30 per cent of recruiters cite candidates who apply to jobs for which they are unqualified as their biggest bugbear.
Even worse, 43 per cent of the respondents said they would 'blacklist' people who did this and even ignore their future applications.
Similarly, employers also found it annoying when candidates applied to jobs without enough experience.
Lying or exaggerating on CVs was another big no-no with 21 per cent of recruiters, even though a recent survey by Graduate Prospects found one-third of respondents knew somebody who had done this.
It could prompt jobseekers to contact sales recruitment agencies in order to navigate the minefield of applying for new positions.
Art Papas from Bullhorn said: "The findings of our survey will hopefully not only help jobseekers get inside the heads of recruiters to be able to better position themselves, but also help make the job of a recruiter a lot easier."
