In this video, the interviewee's first mistake is that he corrects the interviewer multiple times for her grammatical errors. He also provides no information about his previous occupations. Even after these mistake, he manages to get side tracked by an irrelevant story from his childhood.

Interview Do's and Don'ts

  • Rub the back of your head or neck. Even if you really do just have a cramp in your neck, these gestures make you look disinterested.
  • Rub or touch your nose. This suggests that you're not being completely honest, and it's gross.
  • Sit with your armed folded across your chest. You'll appear unfriendly and disengaged.
  • Sit up straight, and lean slightly forward in your chair. In addition to projecting interest and engagement in the interaction, aligning your body's position to that of the interviewer's shows admiration and agreement.
  • Show your enthusiasm by keeping an interested expression. Nod and make positive gestures in moderation to avoid looking like a bobblehead.
  • Establish a comfortable amount of personal space between you and the interviewer. Invading personal space (anything more than 20 inches) could make the interviewer feel uncomfortable and take the focus away from your conversation.
