An approach to crack an interview is dependent on many factors. The interview begins at the very moment the interviewer sets eyes on you. Not just your correct answers will work, but your body language and many other factors are responsible for clearing an interview.

Moreover, I have come through situations wherein a candidate fails to answer questions but his body language and code of conduct impressed interviewer enough to give a job offer.

Therefore, avoid every possible mistake which can be the reason for your rejection. Go through the below mentioned common mistakes candidates do.

1. Not reaching on time

Not arriving on time leaves a wrong impression from employer’s perspective. If you’re going to be late, call and tell the interviewer, the sooner, the better. If it’s earlier in the day, ask if you can reschedule for later that day.

Arrive at least ten minutes before the interview begins.

2. Not Properly Dressed

Your appearance, of course, matters a lot during an interview and neat, professional clothing; say a business suit is your best and safest bet in this if you want to create a positive first impression. Even if you know that the firm allows employees to wear jeans, don’t show up to the interview in casual clothing.

3. Not prepared

The biggest mistake anyone can really make is not taking the time to look for information about the specialization, profile and the appropriate salary range before taking up the offer. You can be asked about whether you know about your upcoming job role or not. Research the company and your forthcoming job responsibilities.

4. Being Brief

Just as you want to learn about the employer, the employer wants to learn about you. At the same time, you don’t want to be the only one talking throughout the interview. Learn to listen and have a balanced conversation where you both have a chance to receive information and ask questions.

When the interviewer asks you a question, do your best to give examples or connections that link your answer to the job under consideration. Do not try to brief the answers and provide appropriate responses.
