I read an article that talked about the most common interivew mistakes made by candidates. The survey polled hiring managers, and these are a few of the results:
Little or no knowledge of the company: 38%
Unprepared to discuss skills and experience: 20%
Unprepared to discuss career plans, goals: 14%
Lack of eye contact: 10%
Late arrival: 9%
Limited enthusiasm: 9%
I don’t understand why most people dont spend the time to properly prepare for the interivew. One of the biggest mistakes that I see, is that candidates think they have “it in the bag” and just dont take the time.
Don’t be “a waster” take the time do your research, be prepared, arrive on time and dress to impress!
