Do not bring up salary

We are all eager to know what our salary will be for the job we are applying for, but the interview probably not the time to bring it up. You should have already done your research prior to applying for this position so you are aware of the average salary range. A more appropriate time might be if the interviewer brings it up, during a second interview or once you are hired for the position. You do not want to give the impression that your main focus is salary.

Do not leave your cell phone on. Silence it or turn it off.

Bringing your cell phone into an interview can be considered a sign of disrespect. There’s nothing worse than to be on an interview and have your cell phone go off - especially if you have a selected song as your ring tone that may be inappropriate. Show your potential employer that you care about the interview by leaving your phone in the car or turning it off.

Do not wear clothes that are wrinkly, inappropriate, or sloppy.

You never want to give the wrong impression about who you are, and since appearance is everything, you need to reflect that. Do not wear clothes that are (i) too tight (ii) show cleavage, (iii) dirty, (iv) wrinkled, (v) unhemmed etc. Also, be sure not to wear excessive jewelry, strong cologne, heels that are too high…You get the picture.

Do not have conversations on your cell phone while you are in the waiting area

Waiting room areas are like train stations without all the noise. You don’t want to appear annoying or unprofessional before you even interview for the position. Remember that you may also not be the only person interviewing for that position. People do not like to feel as if they are forced to listen to other people’s conversations. 

Do not talk poorly about past employers

Negativity about your former job sends the signal that you’ll be negative about your next job. Interviewers don’t want to hire someone who complains, who looks at the bad side, or who doesn’t seem to be satisfied. From the prospective of the employer, a whiner looks ungrateful. And that’s the last thing anyone wants in their office.
