Job Interview Dos and Dont's
There are quite a few things that you should and should not do during an interview that could make the whole thing a lot easier for both you and the interviewer. I’ve listed them quickly in the table below.
|• Arrive on time, or even better 10 minutes early.
||• Be over aggressive or egotistical.|
|• Refer to the interviewer by his or her name.
||• Spend too much time talking about money.|
|• Smile and give a firm handshake.
||• Act uninterested in the company or the job.|
|• Be alert and act interested throughout the interview.
||• Act defensively when questioned about anything.|
|• Maintain eye contact at all times.
||• Speak negatively about past colleagues or employers.|
|• Make all comments in a positive manner.
||• Answer with only yes or no.|
|• Speak clearly, firmly, and with authority.
||• Excuse your bad points about work history.|
