Here at Emerald Staffing, our professional recruiters interview new candidates daily. Each week we hope to help new interviewees with helpful tips – What Not-To-Do during interviews. Emerald’s To-Don’t this week: Do not have your cell phone on!
We are in an age where people go everywhere with a cellular device, it’s the newest appendage for some, their comfort levels drop without that connection. However, when you’re entering an interview, the person taking the time out of their day, expects to have your full attention. Either leave your phone in the car, or make sure you have it completely turned off – If you’re serious about landing a job, you need to remember to concentrate fully on the interview, not what update your phone has for you… It can wait.
