BIGGEST MISTAKES YOU CAN MAKE DURING AN INTERVIEW

In a job market where a single open position can receive dozens, even hundreds of applicants, just getting to the interview stage is a huge accomplishment. So, how you make sure you make the right impression? CareerBuilder.com interviewed thousands of employers. Here are the most common mistakes people make.

  • Answering cell phone or texting 
  • Appearing disinterested 
  • Dressing inappropriately 
  • Appearing arrogant 
  • Talking negatively about current or previous employers 
  • Chewing gum 

Most unusual interview mistakes:

  • Candidate brought a "how to interview book" with him to the interview. 
  • Candidate asked, "What company is this again?" 
  • Candidate put the interviewer on hold during a phone interview. When she came back on the line, she told the interviewer that she had a date set up for Friday. 
  • When a candidate interviewing for a security position wasn't hired on the spot, he painted graffiti on the building. 
  • Candidate wore a Boy Scout uniform and never told interviewers why. 
  • Candidate was arrested by federal authorities during the interview when the background check revealed the person had an outstanding warrant. 
  • Candidate talked about promptness as one of her strengths after showing up ten minutes late. 
  • On the way to the interview, the candidate passed, cut-off, and flipped his middle finger at the driver who happened to be the interviewer. 
  • Candidate referred to himself in the third person. 
  • Candidate took off his shoes during the interview. 
  • Candidate asked for a sip of the interviewer's coffee. 
  • Candidate told the interviewer she wasn't sure if the job offered was worth "starting the car for."
