Avoid Interview Mistakes

I came across an interesting article this morning about ways not to get yourself hired in an interview.  Often, these faux pas seem like pretty obvious mistakes you are certain you’d never make. But take a good hard look back at your past interview experiences—are you sure you’re not guilty of any of these?

Looking for a job can be a frustrating process. Maybe you submit a resume to what seems like the perfect position but no one calls you for an interview.  Or, perhaps you do get the interview, but don’t hear from anyone after that.  It’s likely you’ve experienced one of these scenarios at least once in your lifetime, and if you’re anything like me, it was enough to make you want to throw your hands up in the air and give up.

So to avoid these despairing situations, it is imperative to always go to an interview fully prepared. Sounds like simple advice, right? Maybe so, but if you’re prepping for an interview, check out the Best Interview Strategies blog for some great tips.  And here’s one more simple suggestion: use a job interview prep sheet--it will help you identify what qualities are needed for the position and how you match up. 

Most importantly, just relax and be yourself. Good luck!
