4 Critical Job Interview Mistakes That Can Cost You

3. Practice. 

Don’t show up unprepared, frazzled, confused, or unprepared. Have a pen and paper, an extra resume, and be ready to roll. Take some time to think about what interview questions may be asked and rehearse your answers. Try your responses out on someone you trust to give you some honest feedback. Ask everyone you know to give you a challenging or unusual interview question to practice. Approach the interview like you are preparing for a presentation. The more you know about your subject, the more comfortable you will be in the interview

4. Be true to yourself. 

Don’t try to be the candidate you think they want. Be yourself in the interview. It’s the best way have a good experience and to feel good about how you did. Answer questions honestly and don’t try to be someone you aren’t. We want the real deal! If you let your personality shine you have a better chance of standing out from others and getting a job that is a good fit for you.
