  • ARRIVING LATE?Set 2 alarm clocks, and allow more than enough travel time.
  • DRESSING INFORMALLY?Have a dry-cleaned, conservative business suit ready to go.

  • ASKING ONLY SELF-SERVING QUESTIONS?Prepare questions that show your interest in the position or company.
  • DEMONSTRATING IGNORANCE ABOUT THE HIRING COMPANY?Do some background research on the companybefore the interview.
  • USING EVERYDAY LANGUAGE AND SPEECH PATTERNS?Practice interviewing and using professional terminologywhere appropriate. Avoid ?like,? ?ya know,? ?really,? and ?OK?? when they are simply fillers.
  • FAILING TO ADDRESS THE QUESTION ASKED?Be careful to listen to the question and understand it before answering.
