AVOID THESE 8 INTERVIEW MISTAKES

I recently had a conversation with a hiring manager who personally interviewed 300+ people in the last 2 years. We discussed how uncomfortable it is when people make some truly rookie interview mistakes. People think the interviewer has the easy job, but it’s just as stressful for them. It’s not fun to watch someone make a mistake in an interview that you know is costing them the job. Trying to keep a poker face and finishing the interview can be tough. Here are some of the top mistakes we both have seen first-hand:

1) Failing to do any research on the company so they are unable to answer the most basic question, “Tell me what you know about us?”
2) Making the first question when it’s their turn to ask questions, “What’s the job pay?”
3) Showing up under-dressed, looking disheveled and chewing gum.
4) Arriving clearly hungover, sick, and smelling of booze.
5) Taking calls and/or texting during the interview.
6) Showing up late.
7) Trash-talking a former employer.
8) Swearing.
9) Telling the employer what they think they are doing wrong in their business model without being asked for their opinion.

Interview = Thousands of dollars ($$$) on the line.

Interviews are hard to come by. Each time we fail to fully prepare for an interview, we are putting an entire year’s salary (and more) on the line. Even if we aren’t excited about the job, it’s still worth it to prepare. Who knows? They may have a job that isn’t posted that we’d be perfect for. Or, they may remember us when a job does come available that we’re a better fit for. No matter what, there’s no excuse for not preparing for any interview that comes our way.

And yet….

How many times have smart professionals chosen to “wing it” in an interview? I hear justification for the lack of preparation all the time. Things like:

“I’m better when I don’t sound rehearsed.”

Or, “I don’t want to look to over-the-top about the opportunity.”

They forget the cardinal rule: in an interview, you are a business-of-one and the employer is your customer. If you don’t show them you’re working hard to earn their business, why should they bother picking you?

I’m not suggesting we put the employer on a pedestal.

I’m saying the best way to show the hiring manager we want to work “with” them and not “for” them is to come to the table ready to prove ourselves worthy of a partnership

6 IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU HAVE A BAD BOSS!

I generally believe most people mean well, but simply execute their job poorly sometimes.

Sometimes, there are BAD bosses.

Do you know what to do when you have a bad boss? This post is intended to address the most common issues with a bad boss and the steps you can take to reduce the impact on you both personally and professionally.

The problems we face when we have a bad boss are almost too numerous to mention, but the two biggest of these issues are:

They can negatively impact our work performance.
They can make life miserable

These two issues alone make it worth trying to figure out how to work more effectively with our boss, even when they are bad.

There is a catch-all term we use regarding bosses and co-workers called “being difficult.” It’s not too specific to exactly know what the issue is. Sometimes, when we are in the midst of a constant barrage from the bad boss, it’s hard to know exactly where the difficulty may lie. All we know is it is difficult to work successfully with this person.

Here are some suggestions that might help reduce the level of difficulty:

1. Look To Your Own Performance First
You might think they are being difficult, because they are demanding a different level of output from you. Make sure you are clear on what they expect from you.

2. Realize You May Have Opposing Styles
You might be expecting something from your boss that they simply can’t do. You might think they are unfriendly simply because they fail to say “Good Morning.” To them, that might simply be a waste of time. Examine your own expectations of what you think they should be doing. They may not be very outgoing or simply operate differently than what you’re used to. Reset your expectations.

3. Learn The Boss
Spend some time really observing this person to see what they do that is impacting you. In the process, you might learn that they are getting leaned on by their boss and it’s creating extra stress. You could discover they aren’t a morning person, meaning you should delay important interactions until after lunch. Figure out their rhythms and modify your own.

4. Don’t Shrink
All too often, when we don’t like someone, we go out of your way to avoid them. While I think this tactic can work to keep you under the radar, wait to do that until you clearly have exhausted all your options. You may also find that more, not less, communication can help you with this type of person. Shrinking away into a dark corner won’t help you.

5. Become Indispensable
If you’ve attempted to learn more about the boss, take it to the next level and up your level of problem solving and support. This will help them shine to their own boss and will reduce reasons for finding fault with you. You can become the “go-to” person that they respect and depend on.

6. Let It Roll Off Of You
We will spend a lifetime of running into people that are demanding, critical, and downright volatile. You need to learn the skill of blowing most of it off. Certainly, there will be some of it that will still bother you, but most of the time you can simply not let it penetrate. I’m not suggesting ignoring the boss’s needs or demands; I’m saying to not let their method of delivery be what grabs your attention or reaction.

I have found that even the most difficult of bosses can be tamed or at least subdued. I once worked for a guy who had even the most senior, sage people in tears. When I started working directly for him, I noticed he was quick to engage in verbal battle. If you stood up for yourself, he backed down. I soon figured out that he tested people. If they backed down, he was relentless.

When I told him my observation, he laughed and told me I was the only person who had figured it out. He felt that if you were right about something, you would defend it and if you didn’t defend it, he couldn’t respect you. It was that simple. It was who he was – good or bad, but we always worked well together – and that’s the most important part. You can turn a bad situation around, but it does take work.
