10 Subtle Ways to Sabotage Your Interview

Jeff Hindenach | AdminSecret

Cell Phone Ringing



Problem: Beyond the annoyance of being interrupted during the interview, a ringing cell phone can say many things. You aren’t taking the interview seriously. You think there are more important things than this job. You have no problem inconveniencing other people. And putting the phone on vibrate is no better, since most cell phone vibrations are audible. Picture the interviewer totally distracted, trying to figure out where the buzzing is coming from.

How to Fix It: Turn your phone completely off during your interview. No exceptions, unless you’re wife is about to go into labor. And if that’s the case, or you have another excusable planned emergency, let the interviewer know that before he begins. But make sure you have a really good reason.
