10 Things not to do at an interview?
Here are a few things that should be avoided during a job interview:
- Don’t be late: Arrive at least 10-15 minutes early to show that you are punctual and respectful of the interviewer’s time.
- Don’t dress inappropriately: Dress professionally and appropriately for the job and company culture.
- Don’t speak negatively about previous employers or colleagues: This can indicate a lack of professionalism and loyalty.
- Don’t appear disinterested or disengaged: Show enthusiasm for the job and the company, maintain eye contact and sit up straight.
- Don’t neglect research: Come prepared with knowledge about the company, its mission, and the industry.
- Don’t neglect your body language: Show confidence and poise through your posture, gestures and facial expressions.
- Don’t be too casual or familiar: Keep a professional tone and avoid using slang, jargon, or overly familiar language.
- Don’t be too vague or general in your answers: Be specific and provide examples to support your qualifications and experiences.
- Don’t interrupt the interviewer: Allow the interviewer to finish their questions and statements before responding.
- Don’t forget to ask questions: Prepare a list of thoughtful and relevant questions to ask the interviewer.
Also, remember to turn off your cell phone, or put it on silent mode and be aware of your manners during the interview.
