There are numerous advices and tips made up and written by other people telling you how you should behave at the interview. But nevertheless, most of the job seekers keep making the same mistakes. And sometimes these mistakes are absurd and funny.
Keep in mind your mistakes and avoid them in all possible ways with JiJi.ng
1) Anything, but not working
“Why do you want to work here?” – “Because it’s easy to work here!” This is a truly incredible way to impress an interviewer. Some candidates really tell their potential employers their work is appealing to them mostly because of its simplicity. They also say that their skills are enough only for this definite kind of job and that it was hard to work at the previous workplace.
2) You all are strange
It is a way easier to blame someone else than accept your own fault. You shouldn’t blame the collective of your previous workplace. Your potential employer will more likely think that the problem is actually you. And of course that he/she will not want the situation to repeat at their company.

Some of men come to interview in sport trousers, crumpled shirt, and dirty shoes, even though the dress code is a business classy one in the company they try to get a job in. Your professionalism and individualism doesn’t play a positive role in all places.

There are people are of different temperaments. If you are a very active one, try to keep yourself in your hands at the interview. You better not demonstrate your vocal abilities, talk without a stop, spin on the table, and permanently laugh. It all can happen to anyone of us.

Any HR recruiter will keep their ears open if they see unclear salary expectations. A professional knows for sure how much does his service costs on the labor market.
8) Time for a joke
The sense of humor is good. But you shouldn’t make jokes without a stop or give funny answers to the application questions. A bit of humor won’t be out of place during the conversation, but you shouldn’t cross the line. Don’t think it can somehow savor the impression about you.
