Service of When We Think We’re Terrific But We’re Not: Inconceivable Job Interview Mistakes

I couldn’t believe the results of a survey that Steven Greenberg reported on WCBS News Radio 880. He’s the host of “Your Next Job.” Among other things on his LinkedIn profile he lists HR and Talent Acquisition Consultant.

Most job candidates think that they do well on interviews he said in a recent radio news brief. Speak of delusional if you compare this impression with what employers had to say!

Greenberg covered highlights of a survey of employers:

  • 71 percent said applicants answered a cell phone call or texted during the interview. He advised this is inappropriate behavior even during a Zoom call. Really?
  • 70 percent said the candidate dressed too casually.
  • The majority said applicants appeared disinterested: They didn’t ask questions that showed they’d looked into the position or the business or organization.

These are such obvious, easily remedied issues none of which should have happened in the first place. They illustrate that the preponderance of job candidates in the survey were oblivious of others. I can’t offer another explanation. Can you? Have there been times you thought you aced something and you didn’t?
