3 Common Deadly Mistakes Made In Job Interviews


4/10/2012 3:58:02 PM

3 Common Deadly Mistakes Made In Job Interviews By Carole Martin, Interview Coach

No two interviews are alike so it is difficult to be prepared for the unexpected. You can however, focus on your presentation skills that can be more important than what you say.

1. Poor non-verbal communication image

• Stand straight, and make good eye contact.
• Connect with a good, firm, enthusiastic handshake.
• Sit erect, learning forward to appear interested and attentive.

2. Poor verbal communication skills

• Good communication skills include listening and letting the person know you heard what they said.
• Observe your interviewer’s style and pace, and then match that style.
• Use appropriate language. Beware of using slang words or references to age, race, religion, politics, or sexual preferences.

3. Not asking questions

• When asked, “Do you have any questions?” if your answer is “No,” it is the WRONG answer!
• Asking questions shows your interest. The best questions come from listening to what is said during the interview.
• Asking questions assists you in finding out if this is the right place for you.

Being aware of your verbal and non-verbal performance and the messages you are sending could make the difference between getting a job offer or not.
