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.

While we feel it might be a bit extreme, it serves as a reminder that first impressions set the tone for each interaction, such as job interviews.
