4 Simple Interview Mistakes to Avoid

When it comes to interviews, having a polished resume and knowing what not to do is just as important as knowing what not to do. Like most human encounters, job interviews are very subjective, so you cannot simply rely on the fact that you have a stellar resume. You have to appeal to the panel and make them like you. Now, there has been a lot written on the dos of interviews, so in this post, our Pittsburgh limo service specialists have decided to address the doníts of job interviews.

 

Arriving Late

This the first and most obvious donít on our list. Arriving late to a job interview shows the interviewers that you either donít care much about the position you are interviewing for or you are generally an unreliable individual. For your job interview you should plan to be there 10 to 15 minutes early.

For that purpose, consider employing the services of our Pittsburgh transportation service. Our reliable staff will handle all the logistics, taking into account distance, traffic density, weather, etc., and a professionally trained chauffeur will be there to pick you at the most appropriate time. Our trusted chauffeurs have an intimate knowledge of their area of operation and will use the most convenient routes to ensure that you are at the venue ahead of time.

 

Dressing Inappropriately

It is extremely important that the interviewers perceive your dressing as professional, unless of course the position you are applying for demands less formal attire. Nonetheless, even if you are applying for a non-professional position, go business-casual as opposed to full-on casual. If you are applying for a professional job, however, it goes without saying that you should dress formally. Lastly, ensure that you appear well-dressed and put together no matter what attire suits your position.

 

Lack of Preparation

Think of a Job interview as an examination; it is absolutely necessary for you to study the organization you are interviewing for in order for you to clearly articulate how your skills will be a good fit for their business. Remember, several people will be interviewing for the position and, to stand out in the crowd, you need to be able to demonstrate knowledge of the companyís history as well as its most recent dealings. This will show the interviewers that you are absolutely interested, not just in the position, but in the organization as whole. Besides that, knowing that you have done your homework will calm your nerves and help you demonstrate confidence during the interview, which will be to your advantage.

 

Talking about Salary

The interview is not the time to be discussing compensation, even if the interview process has several stages and you are at an advanced level. Do not be the one to initiate talks about the compensation that comes with the position unless the interviewers themselves bring it up. This includes matters of benefits, vacation days, flex-time, telecommuting options, and so forth. Rest assured that all these subjects will be discussed at the final stages of the interview after the interviewers are certain they want to go with you.
