I'm excited to let you all know that I've been quoted in a great article on FlexJobs. This time I'm talking about how to bounce back from common interview mistakes. Check it out and let me know what you think!
One piece of advice I've given out frequently is that mistakes will happen. You can't avoid every bad thing that could possibly happen when you go for an interview. In fact, we recruiters know this! Flat tires happen, and so do coffee spills just before you go in to our meeting. We aren't expecting you to be a perfect automaton. We do, however, expect you to make a recovery, and that's what we're judging you on when a mistake happens. So, don't have a total meltdown and despairingly give up on your chances if the worst happens. Prepare as much as possible, and if some unavoidable blunder does happen, do your best to recover. It will show me how you perform under pressure, and how you'll make up for a mistake when you might make one on the job, because after all, those happen, too!
