Interview blunders you should never do



Ever come out of an interview and for sure knew that you did not make it? Have you ever stepped forward to go into the interview room and you feel jittery? Do your hands sweat during an interview? Do you feel a little fever and start sweating during and before an interview? If the answers to these questions are affirmative or even one of them is affirmative, then there is something you have always forgotten. Before, during and after an interview there are basics that should guide you in toeing the line while others make blunders.

Be careful while you shelter from the rains


Most jobseekers have in some point in their career where they have had legitimate grievances about a previous company, boss, co-worker, or corporate culture. Every company, even the best ones, are imperfect and can’t be ideal for every personality or work style. Every company and every boss has ‘wronged’ certain employees at times. Sometimes it happens out of bad faith from an individual, or often it happens because of other factors or circumstances but without ill intent.

How you relate your bad experience to a potential employer in an interview, however, can have a great impact on your chances of being chosen to move forward in the hiring process.

6 top tips towards a winning interview.


The job market has tightened, the economy is down, and you've got to find a job, now. You have a job interview coming up and you need every possible advantage to win that job. What do you do? Recent studies have shown that employers will form an opinion of you within the first 10 minutes of the interview. But here's the kicker, it's not always based on what you actually say, but it's on something we term "body language." For instance, 85 percent of what you communicate is not with words. It's through the tone of your voice, the way you sit and a wealth of other messages that your body involuntarily sends.

With this in mind, here are six do's and don'ts on the art of nonverbal communication to give you a winning advantage in a job interview.
