Interviewing for a new job can be a nerve-wracking undertaking. Because of this, most employers are willing to cut their potential employees a little slack; while accidentally knocking over a cup of coffee might not ruin your chances, answering a phone call in the middle of an interview probably will. Although some meetings tend to go better than others, it is often difficult to blow an interview completely. These ten ways to ruin a job interview will almost guarantee you won’t get hired, while avoiding these mistakes could give you an advantage over other candidates.
