You slip into that blazer that says “professional, yet approachable,” print out a copy of your resume and walk confidently into the interview for your dream job. You think it went well, and start dreaming about the day you can put in your two-weeks notice. A few weeks go by before you get the dreaded email: “Thank you for your interest in the position, but we have decided to go with another candidate.”
What went wrong? Could you have done anything differently that would have changed the outcome in your favor?
The truth is, without even realizing it you may have made a handful of mistakes during the interview process that hurt your chances of snagging the job.
