Common interview mistakes that cost you the job CHICAGO, IL -- Be better prepared for your next interview by avoiding the following common mistakes. 1) You Neglect Your Cover Letter: There's nothing more important than your cover letter--not even your resume. 2) You Try Too Hard: You should display confidence, but it's important to remember that there's a fine line between confidence and ego.

3.)You Keep Going, And Going: Do not talk over the interviewer. If you catch yourself doing this, don't persist. Stop, let the other person finish speaking, and then try again. 4) You Badmouth Your Previous Employer: No matter how you feel about your last job, check that negativity at the door and come in armed with a more appropriate answer to the question, "Why did you leave your last job?" 5) You Flunk The Salary Negotiation: Mentioning money early on in an interview can cause doors to close. You need to sell yourself before you can set a price.

6) You Lack Enthusiasm About the Job: The candidate who gets the job is the one that does their research, demonstrating a strong desire to do good work for a potential employer. 7) You Don't Explain Triumphs: Show, don't tell. Tell the interviewer a story about how you used a skill to accomplish something for a prior employer. 8) You're Desperate--And It Shows: Over-eagerness can backfire in an interview, and it's often paired with anxious rambling that bores and annoys interviewers.
