5 Things you should never do during a job search NEW YORK, NY -- Wear sweatpants to an interview: Lounge pants, pajama pants, sweatshirts and any other unprofessional clothing give the hiring manager a bad first impression. Black pants and a collared shirt are an acceptable outfit for any job seeker. Research shows first impressions are made within the first seven seconds.

Have an unprofessional email or voicemail: Hiring managers may call or email you to arrange an interview. Keep your email professional. Your voicemail should be short and professional too. Avoid using casual language, songs or goofy messages. Lie on your resume: You found your perfect job but you fall short of one or more qualifications and have a gap or two. Do not change information on your resume to align with their requirements. Use your cover letter to explain why you'd be a good fit for the job even though you're missing a qualification or to address an employment gap.

Fail to show up for an interview: You may receive a few interviews during your job search. If you accept a job offer before you attend all of them, cancel the remaining interviews. Bash the employer: Maybe you didn't get your dream job. Or, perhaps you were disappointed with how you were treated as an applicant. Keep these frustrations offline and private. While this job didn't work out, there may be future opportunities with the company that will be a better fit.
