Michelle Singletary’s Color of Money column in yesterday’s Washington Post was chock-full of interview horror stories. Hiring managers from major corporations shared some shake-your-head stories of Candidates Behaving Badly.
Lessons learned (among others):
- Don’t eat from the candy dish in the interviewer’s office
- Don’t blow your nose and line up the used tissues on the table
- Don’t present a diploma with the original name covered up with Wite-Out
- Don’t chuck a beer can in the trash before approaching the reception desk
Now doesn’t that make you feel more relaxed before your own interview? Do you have any interview Do’s and Don’ts to share?
