Cancelling an Interview by Tyler Pearl

Getting an interview can be tough. Typically less than 30% of candidates who are submitted or apply for a position make it to the interview stage. It comes as a shock to the hiring manager and recruiter when they invite a great candidate to interview and he or she doesn’t show up or cancels 20 minutes before. As a candidate, maybe not every interview is the one, but there are ways to cancel and be professional at the same time.

The interview is the best time to fully understand the job opportunity and feel out the relationship with the company. The hiring manager saw something in your resume that peeked interest and has set aside time in their busy day to meet with you. Your recruiter has also put a lot of work into setting up the interview for you and preparing you. You took the time to talk with the recruiter and learn about the job. So why would you cancel now?

I understand that things come up. Maybe a more appealing opportunity has presented itself. Maybe you aren’t feeling well. Or perhaps you had forgotten your schedule. If canceling even starts to cross your mind, consider what you and the others involved have put into the process. Respecting your commitment to the interview and the manager’s time is important. You risk burning a bridge with your recruiter, the hiring manager and the company. If you really must cancel, give adequate notice of at least 24-48 hours.

Every interview is an opportunity. Even if the job seems like it may not be your dream job, it is a chance to connect with a manager who shares your passion for the field. Show up on time, be prepared, and you might just leave with the perfect job.

Common Nonverbal Mistakes Made at a Job Interview

Click Picture to Enlarge

Body language is a powerful tool that should never be neglected.  As Ralph Waldo Emerson stated “What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say”.

Although a lot of focus is placed on the content of the interview, you should be aware of what your body language is saying at all times. Your professionalism should be communicated both verbally and nonverbally.

According to Classes and Careers, the most common verbal mistakes made during a job interview are the following:

 

1. Poor eye contact

Not making sufficient eye contact with your interviewer can be seen as a lack of interest in the job position. Conversely staring can be seen as aggressive and a little ‘creepy’.

Also ensure that your eye movements are not ‘shifty’, as this can signify a lack of confidence and uncertainty. Moreover, it is distracting to the interviewer.

ACTION: Make consistent and frequent eye contact, especially when the interviewer is talking to you. This conveys that you are actively listening.

 

2. Insufficient knowledge about the company

Not knowing enough about the company and the role that you are applying for is the second most common mistake seen by employers.

ACTION: Be prepared! Take the time to research the industry, the company and the people you will be meeting.

 

3. Not smiling

It is normal to be nervous during an interview, but don’t let your nerves override your smile. Remember that your positive attitude will be viral!

ACTION: Keep calm. Ensure that you come across as enthusiastic to be given an opportunity.

 

4. Poor posture

Posture can tell a lot about your overall demeanor, so present yourself well! Leaning back can be viewed as lazy, arrogant or as being uninterested in the discussion. Leaning too forward can be seen as aggressive. Slouching is a definite no-no, as this illustrates the height of laziness.

ACTION: Sit upright, keep your back straight and do not hunch. Beware of coming across like a stiff robot! You may lean forward slightly, to look as if you are fully engaged in the conversation.

 

5. Fidgeting

Fidgeting is a sign of nervous energy that can be distracting to the interviewer. You want the interview to focus on what you are saying and not your fidgeting.

ACTION: Make sure you are conscious of your hands at all times. Do not place your hands behind your back, as this will make you appear stiff.

 

6. Unusual handshake

A weak handshake can be sign as a sign of insecurity, while a strong handshake can be viewed as arrogant. Although it may seem irrelevant, an awkward handshake will leave a lasting impression on the interviewer.

ACTION: Your handshake should be firm. Improve it with practice!

 

7. Arms crossed over chest

Crossing your arms across your chest signals defensiveness and highlights your feelings of insecurity and uncertainty of your surroundings.

ACTION: Do not cross your arms! Keep your arms at the side of your chest and rest your hands loosely clasped on your lap. This will make you come across as more approachable.

 

8. Playing with hair or excessive use of hand gestures

As with fidgeting, these actions take away the attention from what you are saying.

ACTION: Be aware of your nervous ticks if you have any and keep hand gestures to a minimum. Do not over animate your hand gestures; you are not a cartoon character!

 

9. Bright color and odd attire are off-putting

Your choice of clothes can have a negative impact if they are not consistent with the position and company culture. You are not part of a circus act or on a night out, so do not dress accordingly.

ACTION: While maintaining your style, dress appropriately for the position, company or industry.

Made a Mistake? Own it.

Hard as we try for perfection there is always that margin of human error.  As human beings it is inevitable that mistakes will be made from time to time.  However, I feel it is not always the mistake that should be judged but the steps taken after that are important.

When we are young we believe the rules don’t apply to us and that we are invincible.  It’s not until we grow up and get our first big reality check that we realize those rules do apply and we are vulnerable.  A choice I made years ago caught up with me in these last few weeks and, while everything turned out okay, it forced me to think of what I should have done differently and what I need to do going forward.

When we make mistakes, to shrug it off or take no responsibility will do you no good – especially on the job.  Sometimes it can seem that employers expect perfection, but for the most part they understand that mistakes will be made or details will be overlooked. If you believe that you are incapable of making a mistake, I am sorry to be the one to tell you that you’ve already made one. It is easy to give your employer an excuse or blame someone else to try and take the heat off of you.  To do nothing to correct or acknowledge the mistake will hurt you in the long run – not just in your job itself but with your co-workers  The minute you throw someone else “under the bus” to save yourself you will not only lose their respect but likely that of other co-workers as well (we all know how quickly word can get around).

So the next time you are confronted about a mistake, think about the situation and the right thing to say before blurting out what’s easiest. Mistakes are a part of life whether we like it or not but it’s what we learn from them that will help determine our future and how far we will go.
