Top 15 Interview Don’ts

23 Oct 2017 administrator

So you received a call confirming the job interview you have been trying to secure. In anticipation, you have researched the company, looked up the job requirements, found out who will be interviewing you, prepared copies of your resume, reviewed answers for anticipated questions and planned when to leave the house in order to arrive on time. Sounds organised so far, right? However, more importantly, what are the things you should avoid when you walk into an interview? Here is a list of the top fifteen most common mistakes people make:

  • Showing up too early or too late
  • Dressing inappropriately
  • Wearing too much perfume or cologne
  • Chewing gum
  • Forgetting to introduce yourself
  • Leaving your cell phone on
  • Texting or taking a call during the interview
  • Talking too much
  • Cutting off the interviewer
  • Not talking enough
  • Not smiling enough
  • Not making eye contact
  • Criticizing your previous company
  • Asking about salary, benefits and leaves right away
  • Not thanking the interviewer for the opportunity once the interview is over
