Mistake #1: Not knowing anything about the company you are #interviewing for.

6 Before your next job interview – AVOID doing these 6 things

Listen to Part 6 of the 6 Things to AVOID before or during your next job interview by Mentor Shelly #np on #SoundCloud

Listen, I know you may be nervous and jittery about your next job interview, especially if it’s for an awesome opportunity you’ve been looking forward to.

Whatever you do, please AVOID these six actions I’m about to discuss…if you have any hope of landing this job or career opportunity.

The first thing to AVOID – Being late.

The second thing to AVOID – Dressing inappropriately.

The third thing to AVOID – Bringing your phone in the interview with the ringer on.

The fourth thing to AVOID – Going to the interview not knowing anything about the company.

The fifth thing to AVOID – Being dismissive or not paying attention to the receptionists or front desk personnel.

This is the 6th and final part of the six part series. You can find the first five parts of the interview series in previous posts on the site, if this is your first time being introduced to the information. So, let’s jump right into this…

Avoid #6 Going to the interview without copies of your resumes, professional references, professional business cards or other relevant career tools.

It’s so important to have your career tools handy, especially during an interview. Keep in mind, the interviewer may not ask for it but if they do…then have them ready! Think of this interview process using your career tools as target practice…the job or career opportunity is the target and each of your career tools (resume, cover letter, thank you letter-post interview, business cards, letters of recommendation) are arrow used to hit the target.

If you don’t have your career tools, your targeted job or career opportunity may eventually slip away. Do you want career opportunities to slip away because you weren’t ready? I think not.

If you’re struggling with how well your career tools are working for you, I recommend checking out the career tools review service to assure your career tools are optimized to help you get the DREAM Career you want!

Schedule an interview coaching session to obtain the “industry specific” strategy and tools to DOMINATE in your next interview or if you’re truly motivated and move at your own pace, find this resource helpful.

5 Before your next job interview..AVOID these 6 things

Listen, I know you may be nervous and jittery about your next job interview, especially if it’s for an awesome opportunity you’ve been looking forward to. Whatever you do, please AVOID these six actions I’m about to discuss…if you have any hope of landing this job or career opportunity.

We are now on avoidance #5 of our 6 things to avoid before or during your next job interview….

Avoid #5 Being dismissive, ignoring or being unintentionally rude to the receptionist or front desk personnel at the company you are interviewing. The moment you enter the parking lot where the in-person interview is taking place…. the interview actually begins. Some companies start observing you the moment you are on their property. They may sometimes watch your interactions with people as you walk in and how you interact with the receptionists or front desk personnel. They also asked front desk personnel to provide feedback on each of their interviewees, so not paying attention to them or being unintentionally rude to them can harm your chances of getting the career or job opportunity.

4-Before your next job interview…AVOID doing these 6 things….

Awesome Folks! This is the fourth installment of the Job Interview series…of Things to AVOID before and during your job interviews…..if you have any hope of landing this job or career opportunity, please keep reading…

Avoid #4 Attending the interview without knowledge about the company, you are being interviewed by and their overall impact on your future professional relationship.
There is nothing worse than attending the interview unprepared. It looks bad on you and it will cost you the job or career opportunity. There are way too many tools on the internet and some social engineering you can do to avoid not doing your research. If you’re not sure what to look for or where to start with your research, I recommend looking into interview help audio series which provide specific guidance on how to execute this portion of your interview process, LIKE A BOSS!

2-Before your next job interview…AVOID doing these 6 things….

Listen, I know you may be nervous and jittery about your next job interview, especially if it’s for an awesome opportunity you’ve been looking forward to. Whatever you do, please AVOID these six actions I’m about to discuss…if you have any hope of landing this job or career opportunity.

Avoid #2 – Dressing inappropriately for the interview, even if the interview is not in-person.
I was taking to one of the facilitators in the career workshop I attended about a year ago and she shared how one of her clients was interviewing a candidate through Skype. The candidate apparently asked to be excused for a moment to use the restroom during the interview. What the candidate seemed to forget that he only dressed for the Skype interview from the waist up. The candidate only had his underwear on from the waist down and forgot to close the computer or cover the camera as he went to the bathroom. He practically mooned the interviewers going to the bathroom. Needless to say, this candidate did not get the job opportunity, all because he did not dress properly. It sounds simple, but being aware and taking the appropriate action will always work out better for you in the long run.
