Job Interview Mistakes to Avoid
Get directions from the interviewer – or a map. Wear a watch and leave home early. If the worst happens and you’re running late, call the interviewer and arrange to reschedule.
Failing to research:
Before the interview, use the Internet to find out the company’s products and services, annual sales, structure and other key information. This shows you are interested in working for the company.
Talk, talk, talk:
Rambling, interrupting the interviewer and answering a simple question with a fifteen-minute reply… all of these can be avoided if you’ve thought through and practiced what you want to communicate.
Including your current employer, former employer, or the competition. You don’t want to look like a complainer.
Failure to ask for the job:
When the interviewer indicates that the interview is over, convey your interest and ask what the next step is.
