Negative Aspects of Interviews, Which May Result in FailureA job interview is your opportunity to prove a prospective employer that you are all they have dreamed of an ideal employee. It is an opportunity to overcome the competition and land the coveted position. Unfortunately, many people unknowingly were cut out of the race and not to land the job because they have proved a job interview or more missteps. Avoid the following five negative behaviors that could cost you the job.

Inappropriate tone and Behavior
When walking in an interview it is important to show confidence in yourself and your abilities. But make it a point to understand the difference between confidence and arrogance. Yes, speak for yourself, speak of your accomplishments and objectives, but remember while you are trying to win over the interviewer and be perceived as an ideal employee and a perfect fit for the job you are applying.



There have been many who have come into an interview and essentially boasted many achievements, "interrupted the interviewer and basically demonstrated a lack of self-consciousness about how they are being perceived by the potential employer.

Here are some pointers when it comes to tone and attitude:
Shake hands, with a smile and be presentable when meeting with a potential employer.
Do not engage in conversation and chitchat before the start of an interview.
Do not listen carefully to questions, making eye contact regularly and respond thoughtfully and comprehensively.

1. Speak with respect to the interviewers
  • Do not slouch in your chair.
  • Do not yawn in an interview.
  • Do not interrupt or talk on the interviewer for any reason.
2. Trash talking of a previous employer
Potential employers most often asked about your previous position and employment history. You can also tell why you left a previous position. If you make the mistake or error of trash talk or insult a former employer, coworker or supervisor that will cost the job you are applying.

Most of us have a horror story to share about a bad boss, a workplace or an employer horrible, but a job interview is not the place to share that story. Instead, talk about your previous position and how they will help you in the position you currently apply. Discuss what you have learned, what he has accomplished and what you have grown professionally. Just do not talk about your shit-good-for-nothing-chief.

3. Answering a cell phone or e-mail on your Blackberry Checking
Turn off your cell phone before entering an interview. If you forget to turn your cell phone and it rings during an interview do not answer it. For those of you who are connected to your Blackberry, turn it off. Do not read text messages or emails at any time during an interview.

4. False or misleading resume
If embellish creative curriculum is likely to be caught and could cost you the job you are applying for first. So do not bother to embellish it can be embarrassing!

Situations have occurred where a person has been hired specifically for a job based on the information contained in the summary only to discover later that the person who actually have no requirements for the job.
