Mumbai:  How to crack job interview? Perhaps this is most difficult assignment for any candidate for career progression.  Silly and common mistakes, which can be avoided by any serious career aspirant during interview, cost a lot, finds TimesJobs receny survey.  Nearly 70% of candidates have been rejected in their job interviews at some point in their career. Of these 60% says they were rejected because of non-verbal reasons, reveals a TimesJobs study.

 Among non-verbal reasons, showing signs of disinterested during interview (40%), failure for making eye contact (32) and late coming for attending interview (32) prompt the candidates to fail in the interview. Even, nearly 25% candidates couldn’t get through the process because they weren’t dressed properly and 10% said they were told that their weak handshake and bad sitting posture made their interview a disaster.

On the other side, of the verbal factors, fumbling in the interview (40%) and talking too much (30%) are main causes of interview failures. About 25% of surveyed job seekers said their lack of knowledge about the company caused their failure while for 15% informed that badmouthing about the previous employer caused the failure.

“Rejection feels bad and is particularly annoying when you know you will perform well on the job. Doing your research, and evaluating yourself and preparing in advance will minimize your chances of rejections. But, what is clearly evident is that the ability to fall down seven times and get up eight, is what inevitably leads to success.” says Nilanjan Roy, Head of Strategy, Times Business Solutions

TimesJobs surveyed 700 working professionals to explore the common factors that led to rejection in job interviews. This study aimed to provide insights for professionals to make smarter career decisions.  Job seekers can take the help of the comprehensive bouquet of career tools including a massive database of Interview Questions & Tips available through TimesJobs.com platform, said TimesJobs in the statement.
