5 Mistakes you should avoid during a job interview

Mistake #1: Non-convincing “Tell me about yourself”

Mistake # 2: Not knowing about the product of the company

So how can you prepare for that?

  • Go to their website and read their home page. On the homepage, most of the time, you can find what they do.
  • Read their “About Us” page and note down one or two product names.
  • If you can just tell one or two lines about the company and the product, that’s enough.
  • You don’t have to waste a lot of time preparing for this.

Mistake #3: Not asking clarifying questions before solving a problem

Mistake #4: Not using “I” while describing what you did in a project.

Be honest

Mistake #5: Not discussing when you were challenged in an interview
