Top 5 Job Interview Blunders

1. A candidate took out a hair brush and brushed her hair in the middle of the interview.

2. A candidate answered her mobile phone and asked the interviewer to leave his own office because it was a "private" phone call.

3. A candidate kept ranting about the last company she worked for. Speaking negatively about your last job will give the interviewer the impression that you are a difficult person to get along with.

4. A candidate was overly modest during a job interview. Modesty won’t help you land a job. Confidently highlight your strengths and accomplishments.

5. A candidate arrived casually late for a job interview. Arriving late to a job interview won't help you in any way. Make sure to appear 10-15 minutes in advance and notify a receptionist that you have arrived.

The Worst Resume Grammar Mistakes

1. Run-On Sentences

Split your run-on sentences up into coherent smaller sentences that make more sense.

2. Using Apostrophes in Plural Words

Plural words don't get apostrophes

3. Random Capitalization

"Resume" is not a name or title-it doesn't need to be capitalized.

4. Changing Tenses

Keep tenses consistent throughout the resume.
