What NOT to do in an Interview

Are you about to have an interview for your dream job? Then you might want to check these top tips of what NOT to do in an interview!

Interviews are nerve-racking there’s no denying it! Try to relax as the interviewer knows exactly what you’re going through because they’ve been in your shoes before! Here are a few top tips of what NOT to do whilst in an interview…

Be negative
Nobody likes to be surrounded by negativity and negative people, so if you’re negative in your interview, you’re not only going to bring their mood down but it will help them make the decision of not taking you on. Positivity is the path to success! Positive minds, live positive lives!

Bad body language
Body language speaks volumes! If you’re yawning, slouching in your chair and fail to maintain eye contact, it’s going to seem like you don’t want to be there. If you really want the job you need to show it through enthusiasm and positive body language!

Turn up unprepared
As the saying goes “Fail to prepare, prepare to fail”! If you turn up without doing your research and practicing interview questions, the chances are you’re not going to be successful in that interview. Show you’re keen to take on the job by doing your research into the company and the job role you’re interviewing for. Practice some general interview questions so you have things to say, but remember, don’t ramble!

Sit down before invited
Wait until asked to be seated! It’s common courtesy and polite to wait until invited to be seated. When you sit down remember to have a good posture and make sure you’re comfortable so you don’t fidget throughout your interview.

Lie on your CV
Lies always get found out! It’s inevitable if you’ve lied on your CV you’re more than likely going to get found out! Not only will you look silly, you’ll also look like you’re not trustworthy which will not help you to getting that dream role. Always be honest!

Not asking questions
Employers want to see you’re excited and enthusiastic about the role! By not preparing and asking any questions employers will take that as you’re not interested in the company or job role. It also helps to make the conversation run well and gives you more information to help you make a decision. After all, you’re also interviewing them to see if you would like to work for that company.
