Job interviews are hard. When it comes to the interviewing there are a few big mistakes that people commonly make: arriving late, being unprepared, and talking too much. These mistakes can be easily avoided. In this article we will go over some of the ways you can avoid making these common interviewing blunders.
Arriving late. One of the worst mistakes that you can make is showing up late to your interview. It may not seem like a big deal to you, but your interviewer (potentially your future employer) may take it as though you do not respect them or their company. And who would want to hire someone like that? Sure, sometimes there are things that are out of your control that can make you late for your interview, but plan ahead. Make sure you leave some leeway for unforeseeable obstacles (i.e. a late bus or subway, traffic, etc.). Being on time for an interview shows that you have good time management skills. This is a skill that most every employer looks for. So do yourself a favor and show up 10 minutes early.
