I remember we carried out an article about this but just go through this summarized version of the common mistakes that people easily make in interviews.
- Not taking the interview seriously. Don’t make the mistake of thinking the interview is just a formality. The biggest error you can make is to assume that, because you’ve gotten this far, the job is in the bag.
- Dressing down. How you present yourself during your initial meeting with a potential employer is very important, and your physical appearance can speak volumes to someone who is meeting you for the first time. Even if you know that the firm allows employees to wear jeans, it is not appropriate to wear jeans to your interview.
- Not showing why you’re the best choice. Be familiar with the job description of the position you’re interviewing for so you can illustrate how your experience, abilities, and strengths are in line with the company’s needs. Many potential employers want to know why they should hire you specifically.
