Mistakes We Make in Job Interviews Infographic

by Pete Ferguson

I love Infographics! I subscribe to receive emails with several a day and I'm constantly surfing the Internet for new examples of how to breakdown complex information into a graphic representation.

This topic of job interviews is a great one. One of my largest pet peeves when I'm the interviewer is when I ask the applicant what they know of the company I work for - which is the World's Largest Online Commerce with two of the most visited websites in the world - and they don't know about and they've never used our services. You don't get hired for your great personality alone ... you need to do your research!

Hi Peter,
I've found the lunch meeting to be one of the best guages as to how a person will act in a team. What is their interaction with the waiter? Do they look at him and smile, say "please", "thank you"? Or do they look only at the menu and not even acknowledge the person who is trying to improve the day? We can always train for skills, but can't train for attitude.

Hi Chris, thanks for your comments. I've used the lunch meeting as a secondary screening, but never asked them to drive, good point!

Peter, interviewing has always been a fascination of mine.While I was working I must have interviewed a thousand people for jobs, and another 500 for promotions. Typically we were in teams and it amazed me how 2 people could sit in on the same interview and come away with differing opinions. I chuckle at some interview questions that seem to have no answer, wondering what the interviewer is looking for. One of the best tips I ever heard was a man who scheduled interviews around lunch, once meeting he'd say, let's go to lunch. You drive, I'll buy. Once getting in their car he'd learn a lot about their habits. thanks for sharing
