Everyone knows that job interviews are tricky enough as it is, but have you ever stopped to consider how the hiring manager feels? If you were interviewing candidate after candidate for the same position, some of these mistakes might start to grate on you. Make the best first impression by avoiding them.
For example, we all know not to arrive late for an interview, but arriving early can be just as annoying for your interviewer. If you’re a half hour early, this puts pressure on the hiring manager to drop what she’s doing and deal with you. Arriving too early also tells your prospective employer that you have nothing else going on in your life, so if you’re early just hang out in a coffee shop for a bit until it’s time to go to the interview. Also, while it’s always a good idea to arrive prepared, it’s definitely possible to over-prepare. If you’ve rehearsed all of your answers to every possible question, the chances are good that you’ll come off as something of a robot or worse, as disinterested. Avoid these and a few other common mistakes, and you’ll give yourself the best chance to land that new job.
