3 attitudes to avoid in an interview
Practice interviews before making them is not just something recommended, it is really a necessity if what you want is to get the best results. Often they stress generated by job interviews results in very negative attitudes that can endanger our candidacy. Therefore, it is important to be well prepared to maintain proper conduct and not let overcome by the situation.
Today we talk about these three negative attitudes that you should avoid at all costs during the interview:
- Being extremely relaxed. No matter how friendly and pleasant are our interviewers, the situation always requires professionalism. You must not be interviewed like you’re chatting with your colleagues. You can be yourself and show cordial and pleasant with your partners but never forget to keep all the formalities of the case.
- Uncomfortably paralyzed. The lack of practice, not knowing act before unexpected situations or just a bad day can take to be paralyzed by a question or unforeseen situation. A good alternative for these cases is to have a comprehensive plan to muddle: generic answers that give you time to think, a conversation related to work or business, questions about the position offered. The practice can also help you address your answers to get out of uncomfortable or unexpected situations.
- Aggressively dominant. You want to show you sure of yourself and control the situation. However, you just have to look for this security showing a receptive attitude and providing clear and concise answers. You do not try to dominate the interview talking too much or pretending to know everything. Do not let the situation will dominate, but pretend not always take your land. An intermediate point where you show self – control and professionalism will be the most appropriate option.
The attitude with which you face job interviews speaks for itself. Common errors often go through overconfidence with interviewers, show embarrassed or want to control the situation all the time.
