From our perspective, the actual percentage numbers are not important. However, it helps job-seekers understand what some recruiters may recognize during interviews.
The article identifies the worst mistakes during interviews as:
- Over-explaining the reasons for leaving past jobs
- Not asking any questions
- Over-selling yourself
At the same time, it offers the following tips for successful interviewing:
- Arrive early
- Be prepared
- Look good
One statistic we found interesting from the study: 33% of bosses admit that they make the hiring decision within the first 90 seconds of the interview.
