3 Most Common Mistakes that Grads make on their first interview

New York, New York (rushPRnews) 05/27/14 — Author and career counselor, Roy Cohen, offers DO’s & DON’T’s for this year’s crop of college grads when they get to their first-ever job interview:

  1. DON’T SOUND LIKE EVERYONE ELSE

DO incorporate examples of your successes and your failures to demonstrate insight and self-awareness.  Most grads forget to distinguish themselves from other candidates when they respond to common interview questions.  When you sound like everyone else you lose out on getting the right people to pay attention to you.  Rote answers are for robots.

  1. DON’T USE POOR GRAMMAR.

DO brush up on your “Elements of Style” and remember to use good grammar.  Saying “Me and …” raises questions about their potential to assume a role which involves interface with important clients.

 

  1. 3.       DON’T TELL INTERVIEWER THAT YOU NEED FRIDAYS OFF TO GO TO YOUR PARENTS’ HAMPTONS HOUSE. 

DO shut up!  Yes, believe it.  One of Roy’s clients has a son who actually told his internet-company interviewer that he would not be available to work on Fridays (but only in the summer!), because he spends weekends at his parent’s place in Watermill.

 

For more of these annoying anecdotes along with a slew of positive, smart, upbeat solutions - - please consider booking ROY COHEN by emailing me.  To familiarize yourself with Roy’s work, his numerous quotes in major publications, his book and tv experience, please visit www.careercoachny.com
