Mistakes that Will Sabotage Your Chances of Getting a Job

Written by


Lets say your interviewing for a new position, you should be aware of the simple mistakes that might accidentally give your interviewer the reasons to reject you, it doesn't matter if you are the most qualified for the role.

Well, Here are 4 Interview mistakes that will sabotage your chances of getting a job.

Being anxious and begging for sympathy

When inexperienced candidates go in the interview session, they often resort to creating drama by showing signs of tremendous anxiety or trying to compel an employer to feel sympathetic for them. Remember your employer doesn’t care whether you were sick last night, someone passed away or you are just afraid. All they care about is how you make sure they do not waste their time on you and how can you convince them that you should be selected. So never show such signs or make reasons which demand sympathy.

Being negative about your previous job

Lots of experienced and inexperienced candidates might be already working somewhere and when they are asked the question, “Why do you want to leave your current job?” their answers start with all the worst possible things about the company filled with negativity. This is the stupidest thing you can do, never become negative or open up internal issues of the company in front of someone new. Be diplomatic with your answer and talk about things that matter like your insufficient growth, or you feel you can do more etc.

Being too confident

Thinking that the interviewer is stupid is something that most graduating candidates do just because they come from a top university. Never be overly confident and try to undermine your interviewer in the process.

Being too desperate
Sometimes it is important to maintain a fine balance between showing your passion to work for the company and not being too desperate about the job. Never show the interviewer that you are willing to even commit a murder for this job, because it can be a sign that you have failed at other places.
