Avoid these interview mistakes
It is very obvious that each particular firm does its own interview according to some things it deems fit, and in most cases, there are lots of individual elements and differences as it comes from the interviewers. All these have a very good bearing on the interview process. But again, there are some general interview expectations from the interviewed and failure on these will amount to some interview mistakes. There are some general things that are expected from you as the person going for the interview to avoid loosing the chance of landing your dream job.
First of all, make good research about the company, how long they have been here, what they are really into and maybe the names of their top directors and other staff. Know their history, goals and current projects. On the day of the interview, try everything possible to make sure you come early to the interview arena and compose yourself well in preparation for the interview. You should inquire about the type of attire the firm will cherish for interviews. When you already know this, find the attire which most times will include a pair of pants and matching shirts with good jackets and matching ties. Try everything possible to make sure you choose the simplest of colors for this.
When you are in the interview room, make sure you put a very happy face. Don’t make the interview mistake of giving the impression that your old employers were so bad to you. Because the interviewers will also think you will talk the same way about them. When you are asked questions during the interview proper, try and answer with the simplest of languages and do not talk too much interrupting the interviewers. Never lie when you are not sure of anything but give clues about how you will try in solving problems with your skills. Don’t fall into the interview mistake of making the interview too informal even when the interviewers try so. Also expect likely questions about your strength, weaknesses etc.
