Good educational qualifications. Top percentage in all subjects. Thorough knowledge on present day topics. But sometimes candidates with these qualifications fail to get jobs even after attending interviews. Very less aspirants think about where they went wrong? And what did they do to fail in the interview. This is because of the mistakes they do unknowingly during the interview. Here are some suggestions and explanations about the mistakes that are usually committed by the candidates and their defects.

Friends resume: Some aspirants don’t know what to write and how to write resume. Often they either take suggestions of their friends or just copy that of others. They simply change only the name, address, date of birth etc and ignore other points in their friend’s resume, not caring enough to check whether their friend’s (whose resume he/she is copying) qualifications are same as his. When the interviewer questions about their qualifications and skills mentioned in the resume, they will remain silent. Even there are instances where the candidates wondered whether they have mentioned all these in their resume. So don’t do copy and paste. Create your own resume based on your qualifications and skills.

About the organization: Candidates often attend interviews without knowing about the organization.

Good appearance: Don’t forget first impression is the best impression. Job aspirants should attend the interview neatly. Some will just go to the interview without proper dress, hair style, without a neat shave. Though there are no fixed dress sense rules, candidates should be neat in their dressing and physical appearance.
