What not to do in your Cornwall job interview
As well as preparing for what you should do when attending a job interview, whether it's a part time job in Cornwall or that perfect next step on the career ladder, it is just as critical that you know what not to do.
- Don't be late!
- Don't curse or use slang words
- Don't slump in your seat or do anything else that makes you look disinterested
- Don't tell miss-truths! The interviewer may see through you. Even if you get the job, your company can dismiss you if they find out.
- Don't let the fact that you may be nervos show too much. It is normal to be nervous, but you can't let your nerves take over, as this will affect your performance. Use breathing techniques and try to remember that it's not a life and death situation; there are an abundance of jobs on AllCornwallJobs!
- Don't be arrogant and assume you've got the job. Nothing turns off employers more than someone who is disrespectful and over-confident.
- Don't keep reading from notes or your CV. You should be familiar enough with your own history to be able to talk about it unprompted
- Don't argue with the interviewer, no matter what. Remember to keep things positive!
