Interview Instant Failures

Are you wondering why you are booking several interviews but not landing any job offers? Here are some common interview mistakes that will likely end in an instant failure!

  • Poor hygiene. Whether you arrive wearing stained clothing, have a strong odor, clothing that does not appear to fit, or you appear to have just rolled out of bed; chances are you’ve already made your impression. Any of these could give the impression that you have lack of interest in the position or attention to detail. Your goal should be to look professional, prepared, and interested in the position. Avoid anything that could distract the hiring manager from focusing on your skills and abilities.
  • Arriving late. Many hiring managers book interviews back to back and are working with a tight schedule. Arriving late can demonstrate that you have punctuality problems, poor planning skills, do not see the interview as a priority, and do not respect their time. Plan ahead for traffic, road construction, and plan to arrive early to ensure that you are able to find parking and the correct building entrance while still arriving a few minutes early.
  • Lack of preparation. Applicants who forget who they are supposed to meet with, do not bring a clean and professional copy of their latest resume and references, or seem unsure of their answers tend to fall short of an employment offer. The interview is your opportunity to sell your skills, professionalism, and prove to an employer that you are the best candidate to represent their organization; be sure to start by showing them that you can represent yourself well.
  • Falsify your information. Whether you falsify your resume, an application, or your experience in an answer; chances are the truth will come out eventually. Most employers have a policy against falsifying an application which can even lead to termination if you do obtain the position. Chances are between reference checks, background checks, skills testing, and their previous knowledge; a hiring manager will likely catch on to your lack of honesty and look to other applicants.
