CHICAGO, January 9, 2013 – One-in-four workers (25 percent) reported they plan to change jobs in 2013 or 2014. If you’re looking to make a move in the New Year, check out CareerBuilder’s annual study on the most common – and most outlandish - job interview mistakes to avoid. The survey was conducted by Harris Interactive© from November 1 to November 30, 2012, and included more than 2,600 hiring managers and 3,900 workers nationwide.



Most Outrageous Interview Blunders

Inexperience with proper interview etiquette or the pressure to make a lasting impression on a prospective employer can sometimes cause workers to show surprising errors in judgment. Hiring managers provided real-life examples of the most peculiar behaviors they witnessed in job interviews:

· Candidate said he had to quit a banking position because he was always tempted to steal.

· Candidate denied that he had a cell phone with him even though it could be heard ringing in the briefcase beside him.

· Candidate emptied the employer’s candy dish into her pocket.

· Candidate said he didn’t like getting up early and didn’t like to read.

· Candidate asked to be paid “under the table.”

· Candidate reached over and placed a hand on the interviewer’s knee.

· Candidate commented that he would do whatever it takes to get the job done, legal or not.

· Candidate hugged the president of the company.

· Candidate called his wife to see what they were having for dinner.

· Candidate asked to postpone the start date so she could still get holiday gifts from vendors at her current job.

· Candidate called in sick to her current employer during the interview, faking an illness.

· Candidate said he didn’t want the job if he had to work a lot.

· Candidate wouldn’t answer a question because he thought they would steal his idea and not hire him.

Six Fatal Interview Errors

While the outrageous can result in lost opportunities, so can other behaviors that are seen more frequently. When asked to identify the top detrimental mistakes in job interviews, hiring managers reported:

Mistake: Appearing disinterested is the No. 1 turnoff, according to 62 percent of employers.

Tip: A lack of enthusiasm can leave the employer feeling less than enthusiastic about you as a candidate. Maintain good energy throughout the interview. Make sure to ask thoughtful questions about the company’s competitive positioning and growth prospects, and come in with ideas.

Mistake: Answering a cell phone or texting – 60 percent

Tip: Make sure to turn your phone or tablet off, or better yet, leave them at home. This is a major pet peeve for employers and can often be a deal breaker.

Mistake: Dressing inappropriately – 60 percent

Tip: It’s better to err on the conservative. Wear a business suit or business casual (ie, a nice pair of pants/skirt and button down shirt).

Mistake: Talking negatively about a current or previous employer – 58 percent

Tip: This is a good way to be labeled as a troublemaker. Even if you are completely justified in your a.ssessment of a past employer, don’t badmouth him/her. Focus on what you learned from that company and how it’s relevant to the job at hand.

Mistake: Failure to make eye contact (72 percent) or smile (42 percent), bad posture (38 percent) and a weak handshake (28 percent)

Tip: Body language speaks volumes. Chin up, back straight, big smile, firm but not too firm handshake and look straight at the interviewer.

Mistake: Not providing specific examples - 34 percent

Tip: Vague responses can sometimes imply a lack of knowledge or experience. Come equipped with specific examples of how you contributed to the success of other organizations, quantifying results whenever possible.

“One-in-four workers plan to find new jobs this year or next,” said Rosemary Haefner, Vice President of Human Resources at CareerBuilder. “A job interview can be one of the most nerve-wracking experiences out there, so it’s important to plan and practice. Have a friend run through a mock interview with you, asking questions you think will come up and some curve balls you’re not expecting. Thoroughly research the company ahead of time and draft responses that incorporate your accomplishments. The more prepared you are, the less likely you are to run into mishaps.”

· Candidate wouldn’t answer a question because he thought they would steal his idea and not hire him.
Depending on what he was interviewing for, it might not be that strange.

· Candidate reached over and placed a hand on the interviewer’s knee.

Had the opposite of that situation happen to me with a older white chick.

some people say some funny sh*t on interviews.. i dont know if its nerves or what

i remember i was interviewing this one chick, i asked her why she left her last job and she said they fired her for always being late and her work performance was really bad.. i appreciated her honesty but after i heard that, i just wrapped up the interview and tossed her resume in the trash

another chick i was interviewing was real cool and we just chopped it up for like an hour or more when i interviewed her.. maybe an hour or so after the interview was done, she called and wanted to know if i wanted to come over to her place after i got off work.. yea she got hired lol

Man that ish cray. This has happened to me more than once. But I go into interviews like a chick would. If it is a woman just chop her up. I swear women are slow when it comes to dudes that don't sweat them. Me and my friend always talk about job interviews cause if your are brown like me you DO NOT WANT a white dude or black woman to interview you... You will not get the job.







Go to go in there like this on these hoes!
