Ways to blow a job interview

Courtesy of CareerBuilder.com and a survey of 3,000 U.S. hiring managers.

When asked about the most common mistakes made by candidates during job interviews

  • 51% of managers said inappropriate dress
  • 49% said negative comments about previous employer
  • 48% said interviewees who appeared disinterested

Rounding out the list of missteps guaranteed to not get you hired were arrogance, evasiveness and poor questions.
