Things you Should Never Do on a Job Interview

Things you Should Never Do on a Job Interview

  • Be Clueless About the Company

Knowing the basics about a company is as simple as pointing and clicking. Yet, some applicants still come in woefully unprepared. “It’s always a huge turn-off when the applicant doesn’t take the time to learn about a company before coming in. “Read the company’s About page online and browse through other sections of their website, so you understand what the company is about before your interview.”

  • Talk Too Soon About Money

Any good HR expert will tell you not to be the first person to bring up salary, yet some foolishly think the opposite. “When candidates bring up money early in the discussion, it’s an immediate turn-off.”

  • Be Late (or Worse, Too Early)

Showing up late, canceling at the last minute and not being flexible with your schedule are big-timeannoyances. Arriving late to an interview is not an option; you should drive there in advance and understand the lay of the land before interview day.

  • Forget Copies of Your Resume

Don’t assume an interviewer has a copy of your resume handy, no matter how many times you’ve sent it or to whom.

  • Trash a Previous Employer

The fastest way to talk yourself out of a new job is to say negative things. No matter how reasonable your complaints, you will come out the loser. The interviewer will assume that you would similarly trash him or her.

  • Lack Enthusiasm

The most common error is candidates not being excited about the company’s mission and vision. Candidates need to do their homework and be as enthusiastic as they can be about it.

  •  Forget to Ask Questions

Asking questions illustrates your enthusiasm and interest in the position and simply shows you’ve been paying attention.If an applicant has no questions, I assume they haven’t done their homework and don’t truly understand what our company does. It also tells they don’t naturally have an intellectual curiosity, which is a must in workplace.

Don’t wait for sudden inspiration — prepare strong questions in advance, even if you already know the answers.

  •  Talk Too Much

The longer you talk, the higher your chances of turning the interviewer off to your answer. Pay attention to social cues; if the interviewer frequently has to cut you off in order to move on, you’re probably talking too much.

  •  Leave Your Cell Phone On

Unlike at the movies, there’s no one at an interview telling you to turn off your cell phone, so you need to remind yourself.
