Top 8 things to NOT do in a top position job interview

Top positions means more power and as rightfully said by Uncle Ben:

"With great power, comes great responsibility"

N: Being late is a sign of disrespect and lack of commitment, so make sure you arrive on time or a few minutes early.

  1. Not Being Punctual: Research the company and the role you are applying for, prepare answers to commonly asked questions and have a few questions ready to ask the interviewer.

  2. Not Being Prepared: Research the company and the role you are applying for, prepare answers to commonly asked questions and have a few questions ready to ask the interviewer.

  3. Don't badmouth previous employers: Even if you had a bad experience, avoid speaking negatively about past employers or colleagues as this can give a negative impression of your attitude and professionalism.

  4. Don't exaggerate your achievements: Be honest about your achievements and avoid exaggerating them. It's better to be humble and let your experience and skills speak for themselves.

  5. Not showing professionalism: Even if the company culture is relaxed, make sure you dress appropriately and maintain a professional demeanor throughout the interview.

  6. Do not talk more than required: Listen carefully to the interviewer's questions and answer them succinctly and clearly. Avoid going off on tangents or talking too much about yourself.

  7. Don't forget to follow up: After the interview, send a thank-you note or email to the interviewer, expressing your appreciation for their time and reiterating your interest in the role. This can leave a positive impression and help you stand out from other candidates.

  8. Do not leave loose ends: If you wish not to take on the position after being selected, make sure to follow them up to inform that you will not be pursuing the offer and explain why in a professional manner.
