Getting called for a job interview -- especially now, in an extremely difficult job market -- is a major feat in itself.
If you didn't take the time to research the company you are interviewing with, this could be a red flag to your interviewer.
You will typically get the name and titles of the people you will be interviewing with ahead of time. Just as you should research the company, you should also research your interviewers.
A timely, polite follow-up after the interview can go a long way. Mullings said to always send a thank you email to your interviewer within 24 hours.
When your interviewer asks if you have questions for them, this is still part of the interview.
Sometimes you and your interviewer just won't have a good interview "chemistry."
"Recruiters are human and they want to know the person is interested in their company, the role and, in general, interested in other people,"
While it's OK to ask these questions when you are further along in the interview process, you should not bring up these topics during the initial interview
The first impression can be everything.
Speaking poorly about former employers or managers could be a red flag for recruiters.
"I'd much prefer a candidate say, 'I'm not familiar with that,' and then provide examples from their past on their continuous learning, appetite for being trained and engaging with new concepts, etc., than to pretend they know about a subject they don't,"
Simply going through your resume isn't enough to land a job -- you must explain how your previous experience qualifies you for the open position.
If you've made it to the point in the interview process when it's appropriate to discuss salary, be sure your expectations are in line with other salaries for the given role.
Sometimes, the reason you didn't get a call back will have nothing to do with your interview performance.
