5. Not being yourself.
Be honest! Do not pretend to understand a question if you are confused. If you do not know an answer, just say so.
4. Not listening.
Focus on the question that is being asked and don’t try to guess the next one. It’s OK to pause and collect your thoughts before answering a question.
3. Not providing enough details.
Employers want to know as much as they can about you and what you think. Try not to answer questions with just yes or no.
2. Lack of enthusiasm.
Maintain eye contact, greet the interviewer with a smile and a firm handshake (not too weak, not too strong).
1. Arriving late.
If an employer sees you can’t be on time for an interview, he or she will also think you won’t be on time for work.
