The sole purpose of your question is to prove that you’ve checked out the firm’s website, read its annual report, or read Investment Dealers’ Digest, chances


These are the most common interview mistakes
1.Arriving late – Get directions from the interviewer – or a map. Wear a watch and leave home early.

2.Dressing wrong – You make your greatest impact on the interviewer in the first 17 seconds – an impression you want to make powerfully positive.

3.Play zombie – Sit up, focus on the interviewer, and start responding. Enthusiasm is what the interviewer wants to see.

4.No smoking, no gum, no drinking. This is all comfort stuff for you, and none of it helps you here. Employers are more likely to hire non-smokers.

5.Research failure. The interview is not the time for research. Find out the company’s products and services, annual sales, structure and other key information from the Internet, the public library, professional     magazines or from former employees.

6.Can’t articulate your own strengths and weaknesses.

7.Winging the interview – Practice! Get a friend, a list of interview questions and a tape recorder and conduct an interview rehearsal.

8.Talk, Talk, Talk.

9.Failure to connect you to the job offered – “How my education/experience/talents/strengths fit your needs and why I can do this job for you.”

10.Not asking questions – and asking too many – Use your research to develop a set of questions that will tell you whether this is the job and the company for you.

11.Bad-mouth anyone –  Not just your present employer, or former employer, or the competition. You don’t want to look like a complainer.12.Asking about compensation and /or benefits too soon. Wait for      the   interviewer to bring up these issues – after the discussion of your qualifications and the company’s needs and wants.
