Jobseekers’ Biggest Inteview Mistake

Job seekers are often told to research the company or companies prior to the interview, but many do not believe that research is important. A national survey developed by Accountemps revealed that lack of company knowledge was the biggest interview mistake made by job seekers. See the results below:

Executives were asked, “What do you think is the most common mistake candidates make during job interviews?” Their responses:

** Little or no knowledge of the company 47%
** Unprepared to discuss skills and experience 17%
** Unprepared to discuss career plans and goals 9%
** Limited enthusiasm 9%
** Lack of eye contact 3%
** Monopolize interview 2%
** Focus on salary/benefits/perks 2%
** Lack of self-confidence 2%
** Inappropriate dress 2%
** Late arrival 2%
** Don’t know/no answer 5%

It may begin to sound like a cliché, but research is a key part of your job search.
