If you’re lucky to be offer a interview try to take advantage, of the opportunity or make it become an advantage in your favor. Since being on time is going to be a important part, of the job if you get hired. So, being late to an interview wouldn’t work in your favor with the human resource director or the one that hire employees.
If late and you call it still seen as a negative to many employers because you’re wasting the time they set aside to interview you. Sure most likely it might not hurt you but it’s a chance you don’t want to push when others might be afforded that opportunity.
And avoid saying negative comments about your former employer to your potential new employer. As much as you feel it’s a vindication feeling to your new employer’s it seems not the brightest thing to do because you might criticize them when they get rid, of you through just a simple budget cut. Your job performance might be good but numbers dictated your termination.
Besides you might need that former human resource department director to give you a recommendation. Which many former employees fail to understand in society.
Next leave the friend and associates, at home. Who knows they might impress the interviewer with their knowledge? Or might make your interview comes across negative by being there. Yes, you might be judged harshly just , by the appearance of your friends.
If they are driving you to the interview have then wait outside in their car for you. Or advise them you’ll call them back when the interview is over. Which might be a better thing to do when searching for employment.
Disrespect: Don’t be disrespectful doing the interview. We see people answering phones doing the process which sends off a red light to the interviewer that when something important concerning their business you mostly likely to answer the phone. Leave it in your car if you can’t leave it at home. Or use silent button which many phones has.
Remember two words that you should place high in your mind like many companies do when meeting people. It’s FIRST IMPRESSION because it will stay upon many human resource people minds even if you don’t get hired, at the first meeting. Many times that boss just might recall your demeanor when someone that was hired didn’t work out.
Next, and very, very important than any thing mention above because this will lead you back into being unemployed. Never ever lie upon your application because many times it will surface back toward you when information comes forward that you lied to get hired.
Some, of the best employees have lost their jobs simply because they lied. And if you just get an application and read many you’ll find their requirement at the bottom stating the things that will get you terminated. But it depends on the states.
A right to work state rules means you can be terminated without many reasons needed to be given. So first impression and truth works more in your favor than the opposite which will work against you.
Leave your interviewer laughing in a positive manner than in a negative way. Sometimes they remember your face if they might forget your name.
