10 Subtle Ways to Sabotage Your Interview

Not Shaking Interviewer’s Hand



Problem: First impressions are vital in an interview. When meeting your interviewer for the first time, there are three faux pas you need to avoid: Not standing when they enter the room, not shaking their hand, and not looking them in the eye. Each action is disrespectful, and if you are not respectful to your interviewer they’ll assume you won’t be respectful to your future clients.

How to Fix It: Make it a practice when you are meeting anyone for the first time. Stand, shake the person’s hand, and look them in the eye. If it’s habit for you, then you won’t even have to think about it when the time comes.
