Employer Perspectives: Common Interviewing Mistakes by Alyse K

Interviewing Mistakes

During our Winter Career, we asked our employers to give us some insights and feedback. When we asked employers what some common mistakes students make during interviews, the top three responses we received from the employers who responded were:

  1. Unprepared/ Don’t do homework about the company

  2. Lack of eye contact

  3. Lack of focus/ Don’t know what they want from a career
