|Hiring interviewing is the decisive moment of your job search . You have been selected according to your profile and your resume, it will now be necessary to prove that you are the ideal candidate. To be sure to be a part of the "short-list" and pass this exam you obviously need to prepare well but also avoid of small behavior errors. Every detail is importance!
Here is a small list of errors
1. Coming late without warning
The least of the courtesies if you are late (these are things that happen), is to phone to prevent. Recruiters are often sensitive to punctuality because they make appointments all day with other candidates.
2. Getting your hands in your pockets
Getting to an interview without having anything prepared, without you being informed about the company and the job , without taking notes is the worst thing to do in job interview. For a recruiter this is the obvious sign that you are not motivated.
3. Not having the right dress code
To each trade his dress-code! If you do not know it, you may seem offbeat. Inquire about the style and ambience of the company to be well fitting.
4. Monopolize speech or say nothing
Maintenance is an exchange. You have to know how to argue but also listen to the information given by the recruiter to ask relevant questions and show that you have understood the need of the company.
5. Make tons ... or not
During the interview, the recruiter will try to get to know you better, to see if your personality is compatible with those of your future colleagues. If you are too arrogant or shy, you may have doubts about your ability to be part of a team. Normally, you know your defects in one way or the other. A balance must be struck at the level of behavior.
6. Denouncing previous employers
Even if some of your work experiences have ended badly, you do not need to shoot red on your ex-employers. It is not seen and it brings nothing. On the other hand, you will probably have to explain why you have left such or such a company. At that point value the next post rather than criticizing the previous one.
7. Tackling pay too early
Asking questions is good, but during a first appointment or during a telephone interview, ask for details on salary, restaurant tickets … may seem a little rushed. These details will be negotiated when the employer will make you a concrete hiring proposal, not before. That does not stop you from giving your salary claims anyway with a reasonable range if you are asked.
