Take note of these top job interview mistakes

Take note of these top job interview mistakes


Ok, now you need to attend a couple of job interviews. Here are the main interview blunders, errors or mistakes a candidate seeking a job can make. Spend quality time to prepare well for the interview, so that you do not repeat these mistakes.

  1. Not knowing anything about the organization

When the recruiter asks you a simple question, “what do you know about our organization?” and you blink or state wrong facts, then your mission for job will end there, at least for that company. Background information including organization’s divisions, history, mission statements, locations, their future goals are accessible in an “About Us” segment on most organization sites. Before you attend the interview, check all these details, take a print out and read it over. Additionally check the organization’s Facebook page and LinkedIn page, on the off chance that they have one.


  1. Dressing inappropriately
    Dressing improperly can work both ways. You will absolutely need to wear a suit on the off chance that you are meeting for professional job position. If you are attending interview for a summer job at your nearby amusement park or as a lifeguard, then dress accordingly in casual and neat attire. If you aren’t certain what to wear, visit the firm and watch the employees coming out of the workplace to check what they are wearing.
  2. Feeble voice and poor communication Skills
    it’s essential to correspond well with everybody you meet in your quest for employment. Actually, you have to be confident while talking to your hiring manager and never use feeble voice, as this may seem like you are a weak person. Shake hands, display confidence, make regular eye contact, and engage in meaningful conversation with your recruiter. This way, you will let that person know that you are an exceptional candidate for that particular job.
  3. Too distracted or jabbering too much

Some people are over confident, will answer their cell phone even during the interview. That is a big mistake. You need to turn it if off or leave it at your house before entering the office building. Carry your resume, list of references and your job application. Plus, you should not keep yapping about your previous employers or your life history. Keep it short and simple. Never ever badmouth your previous employers. Corporate world is small and everyone is interconnected. Not everyone feels the same about one person.

  1. Give wrong answers

 Listen to the question carefully, be alert, pause a minute to assemble your thoughts and then give a clear answer. For instance, when the interviewer had described a marketing and sales job offer to the candidate, that person had stressed about prospecting and cold calling. If the candidate does not …

The Golden Rules of Business and Entrepreneurship

The Golden Rules of Business and Entrepreneurship


Entrepreneurship has come to a new age and business is now run on different principles and platforms. It really does not matter how the situation is and how it will be, the set of principles or rules do not change for any business. The golden rules of business are applicable to all the niche and domain and are equally effective. It is therefore very important to know and implement the business rules to stay alive in the market. If you are an entrepreneur and looking for the right kind of investment, then, these rules should help you to succeed in business.

New and Existing Clients

It is important to find the new clients or customers to stay in the market. However, to find them, you need to have campaigns or advertisements or something to attract them. The existing clients are however the most reliable and the stronghold of your revenue. Basically, one new client costs you 5 times more than an existing client due to all the marketing activities. So, it is very important to hold on to each and every customer or client to make the revenue. If you are a business person then you have to make sure that each and every customer is important and equally needed. If you go through the revenue chart of any business then you will clearly see that 80% of the revenue of any company generates from the loyal and existing clients or customers.


Brand Value

It is important to establish the name of the brand in the market. Well, there is no shortcut in doing that in life. The most important part of the brand value is the delivering good service for a continuous period of time. There are few things that come only with time. The brand value is same as experience; it just cannot arrive as you launch your product in the market. You need to amaze and win over the customers again and again to build the reputation. Hence, you need to be very patient and equally straight forward on the brand value.

Employee Satisfaction

As an Entrepreneur, you should always remember that end product that is reaching out the client or customer is the output of the employees, not the investors. Both are equally important but if you have a pool of unsatisfied employees, there is hardly any chance that you will go for a longer run in the market. The happy the employees are, the lesser will be unproductive hours and that is important for the business as well as for the investors.

Customer Satisfaction

This is the most important part of all and probably handles all of the others. The customer satisfaction should be the …
