Mistakes Made In Job Interviews

Since no two interviews are alike, it is difficult to be prepared for what lies ahead, but you can focus on your presentation skills, which may be even more important than what you have to say. Three areas of performance, which should be considered dangerous and deadly, are worth spending some time thinking about before your next interview.

1. Poor non-verbal communication image

It’s about demonstrating confidence –

– Stand straight, and make good eye contact. (Note the color of the interviewer’s eyes.)

– Connect with a good, firm handshake. (There’s nothing like a limp response in a handshake.)

– Sit erect and lean forward in the chair, appearing interested and attentive. (Slumping denotes a lazy attitude.)

That first impression can be a great beginning, or a quick ending to your interview.

2. Poor verbal communication skills

Your interviewer is giving you information, either directly or indirectly.

– Good communication skills include listening and letting the person know you heard what they said.

– Observe your interviewer’s style and pace and match that style, adjusting your style and pace
