It’s inevitable that job seekers will have to attend interviews to secure a new role these days. Whilst interviews come in all shapes and sizes, make sure you avoid these common mistakes.
Make sure you prepare. It doesn’t make much to research the job and the organisation you’re interviewing with. If you can’t answer any questions about the job or the company in the interview, it’ll look like you’re not interested.
Are you on time? Turning up late to an interview, even if it is out of your control, won’t start things well for you. Plan your journey well and leave plenty of time to get there, even if delays occur. If you do find yourself running later, call the organisation to let them know when you’ll arrive. And if your interview is online, log on join the call at the start time (not early!), and consider testing your tech beforehand.
How much information? It’s vital that you’re careful about how much information you give. You should avoid being critical of a previous or current employer in an interview setting, and honestly, the interviewer isn’t going to want to hear your full life story! Answer the questions given clearly and to the point.
