Interview Mistakes

If you haven’t made the kind of C.V gaffes mentioned on the previous blog and secured an interview don’t make these mistakes, very strange, but true:

lay on the floor to complete an application form
Took a large dog to the interview (and not a guide dog!)
Wore headphones and said he could listen to music and the interviewer at the same time
Challenged the interviewer to an arm wrestle
Ate a sandwich during the interview because she hadn’t had any lunch
Candidate asked the interviewer to put on a suit so the job offer was ‘formal’
Sat reading an ‘adult’ magazine while waiting for the interviewer to finish a phone call
Took off his socks and shoes to apply foot powder because he always does it at this time
On seeing a photo of the interviewer’s wife on his desk, asked for her phone number
