12 Job interview mistakes. When a job interview doesn’t produce a job offer:

  • Poor personal appearance.
  • Lack of focus. Be clear about what you want & what you don’t want.
  • Appearing too eager or too anxious. Listen 75% of the time & talk 25% of the time.
  • Poor references. Always contact your references before you attend interviews & if you are not sure of what they will say, ask them. It’s also a good idea to give them a copy of your resume.
  • Poor attitude. Don’t be arrogant.
