Human resource experts say people make a lot of mistakes while giving a job interview, but do not realize it at that time.
Rosemary Haefner, vice president of human resources for CareerBuilder, said a successful interview is a presentation that marries the job-seeker's personality and professional experience to the needs of the hiring manager and the company. She recommends the following interview tips:
Do your research: Before the interview, research the company online by looking at their press room for recent company news, the "About Us" section for information about the company culture, and the list of products and services so you are familiar with all they do, Live Science reported.
Keep it upbeat: During the interview, stay positive and avoid bad-mouthing previous employers.
Prepare examples and ideas: Bring your resume to life by practicing specific anecdotes that highlight your accomplishments and the ways in which you dealt with challenges in your past roles. Be prepared to share ideas of what you would bring to the position.
The research was based on surveys of more than 3,000 hiring managers and human resources professionals.
