Interview Hazards

BE CAREFUL – INTERVIEW STRIKES AGAINST YOU FOR:

  • The appearance of dishonesty
  • Lack of maturity
  • Know-it-all, aggressive behaviour
  • Inability/unwillingness to be a team player
  • Excessive concern about what the company can do for you (over-emphasis on salary)
  • Inarticulate (using wrong grammar)
  • Being late for the interview
  • Not doing research on the company before your meeting
  • Not coming in with good questions to be able to ask the interviewer at the end
  • Inappropriate dressing
  • Not having the contact information on the person you are meeting just in case you are late (always ask the recruiter for this if he/she hasn’t provided it to you)
  • Beating around the bush in your interview
  • Lying on your resume –nowadays with the amount of social media that is available – people can easily look you up – so you better be able to back up what you have down on paper
  • Not knowing your numbers/results
