A look at some of the do’s and don’ts of job interview etiquette.
So you landed a job interview, and you figure, you’re a shoe in. After all, you have the right education, training and experience. But over-confidence could be a job killer, especially if it’s accompanied by a sense of entitlement and self-importance, which can lead to poor behavior and judgment. Instead, when you go to an interview, think of yourself as a guest, because essentially that’s what you are says the Globe & Mail.
That means treating everyone from the receptionist on, with respect. Turn off your cell-phone or smart phone. This is not the time to make or receive calls, and it’ll prevent you from checking texts during the interview – another big no-no. Be on time, don’t leave early and finally keep you interview commitment unless you can cancel with ample warning. Even if you landed another job in the interim, you never know if you may want to work for this company in the future.
