10 Mistakes to Avoid during a Job Interview

Posted by Shubhra On Sat Jan 10, 2009 6:02 PM

You can do it!

For a job seeker the most important moment is when he/she gets an interview call for a job.Getting an interview call does not mean that you’ve been selected for the job.If you have made it till the job interview, this is where things begin to get really intense.

A face to face interaction with your prospective employers gives you a perfect opportunity to present your case and convince the employers that you are the ideal candidate for the vacant position in their organization. However, most job seekers falter at this crucial stage, a mistake that can prove to be detrimental to their success and getting that much awaited job offer.

Here are some common mistakes to avoid during a Job Interview -

1.Appearing late for the interview-Be on time,rather try to reach a little earlier for the interview.Being late shows your casual attitude.So value time.

2.Dressing up too casually-Your dressing sense is important while appearing for an interview.Have a simple yet professional look.

3.Manipulating facts-Do not try to pretend or makeover things in front of interviewers.It’s better to say the truth rather than manipulating facts.

4.Looking Nervous-Everyone who appears for an interview is a bit nervous,but this nervousness should not appear on your face.Be confident about yourself and your capabilities.Say to yourself that you can do it and you’ll give it the best.Boost yourself up before appearing for the interview.Prepare in advance.Confidence will reflect in your personality.

5.Speaking out of turn and talking too much-This definitely will not be in your favour.Speak only as and when required.

6.Lacking focus during the interview-Do not get distracted while being interviewed.Be physically as well as mentally present in the interview.

7.Asking too many questions-Do not ask too many queries without waiting for that stage of the interview where the interviewers actually ask you to do so.

8.Not maintaining eye contact-It is imperative to maintain eye contact while conversing with the panel of interviewers.This shows your level of confidence.

9.Your mobile phone  ringing during the interview-Keep your mobile on silent mode while in an interview.Attending calls on your mobile during an interview distracts you from the topic and shows your casual behavior towards the interviewers.So,try to avoid this mistake.

10.No ‘thank you’-Do not forget to say a “Thank You’ note after the interview is over.

One of the most boring yet important questions all interviewers ask is "tell me about yourself" as awkward as it sounds it is very important to provide a very interesting preview of yourself as an able and competent person. Instead of "I am so and so from so", you can always start as I am a young and enthusiatic photographer (or whatever job you are well fitted).. Academically i have complted BA/BSc etc or pursuing MBA, MCA etc... Professionally I have been involved with (company name ) that gives you an edge over other shortlisted candidates!!

When maintaining eye contact with the interviewers, you must keep in mind not to look constantly in their eyes so that they feel uncomfortable. While speaking you need to maintain eye contact in a sober and polite manner so that it reflects your positive attitude.

Everyone is nervous on interviews. If you simply allow yourself to feel nervous, you'll do much better. Remember also that it's difficult for the interviewer as well. In general, be upbeat and positive. Never be negative. Rehearse your answers and time them. Never talk for more than 2 minutes straight. Don't try to memorize answers word for word. Use the answers shown here as a guide only, and don't be afraid to include your own thoughts and words. To help you remember key concepts, jot down and review a few key words for each answer. Rehearse your answers frequently, and they will come to you naturally in interviews.
