Top Mistakes Made by Job Applicants

Not Being Prepared For The Interview - As a job seeker, it is a big crime if you are going to an interview totally unprepared. Top recruiters around the world consider this the biggest put-down for them when candidates turn up with doing any research about the organization, the services/products offered by the company, the job profile for which they are applying, etc.

Embellishing the Resume - This again features among the top mistakes that recruiters advise applicants never to make. Whether it is your experience you are embellishing, your skill sets, or any other aspect of your professional life, it makes a really bad impression on the recruiters & you are most likely to lose their interest even before you have had a chance for a personal interview.

Turning Up Late - This again is one of the most common blunders made by job applicants. Whatever be the reason, there is no excuse for latecomers. It is better to leave early for the venue to avoid any unforeseen hassles en-route e.g. traffic jams, etc.

Not Dressing As Per The Occasion - Though there are many companies today that do not advocate a formal dress code for their employees, but as a job applicant unless you are very sure about this, it is always better to be formally dressed.
