It is a known fact that everyone tries to be on their best behavior while appearing for an interview. However, in our efforts to do everything right and answer questions correctly, we sometimes forget to watch out for the smallest and perhaps the most important things that should never be underestimated.

When appearing for a job interview, always keep in mind that the first impression is the last impression. Even the smallest mistake on your part can prove to be very costly.

Here are a few things you must watch out for while appearing for a job interview -

Being Late - It is okay to show up early but do not be late for you interview.

Cribbing & Complaining - Refrain from bad mouthing your previous employer and colleagues. No one wants to listen to someone who only knows how to complain.

Being distracted, nervous and excessively negative - Remember: the way you conduct yourself says a lot about your personality. Make sure that you are physically as well as mentally present while appearing for your interview. Keep your cool and give it your best shot. And most important - be positive.

Not stating Facts - In your efforts to make a good impression, never give in to temptations of lying. Answer questions truthfully and be honest about your work experience and qualifications.

Going on and on - When the interviewer gives you the chance to speak, stick to what is important. Being over talkative and opinionated can adversely effect your interview.

Trying to be funny - You might be a funny person and you might enjoy cracking jokes every now and then. Don't do it during your interview. Remember - there is a place and time for everything. Refrain from cracking silly jokes and testing your interviewer's patience.

Being unprepared and unaware - Before appearing for any interview, it is good practice to research the Company background and other details. Prepare yourself for obvious questions and do not forget to carry your latest, updated resume and other important papers.

A little bit of mental preparation before appearing for an interview can help you in avoiding stupid mistakes. Above all - be calm, composed and positive.
