3 Things Not to Do in Your International Business Interview

by admin on

Interviewing can be stressful. If you are interviewing for an international business job, prepare yourself and avoid these common mistakes and you will find yourself in a much better position to get a job in today’s competitive job market.

  • Keep things professional – from the way you dress to what you say. Remember it is an interview. No matter how qualified you are it needs to be kept professional.  Dress professionally, do not chew gum, and do not bad talk your previous boss or your spouse.
  • Put the phone away – and if you are innately tempted to check your phone every time it buzzes, leave it at home to avoid temptation.  Answering your phone, texting or even checking your phone is extremely unprofessional.
  • Listen and answer the question – it is important to listen to what the interviewer is asking and make sure you honestly and completely answer the question. Not answering directly makes you appear disinterested. And be honest. You do not want an exaggeration to cost you the job.
