5 Interview Wrong Turns

Zac Frank | AllHealthcare

#1: Trying Too Hard to Be Similar

Research has found that people not only like people similar to them but that they will project their positive traits onto those they are perceiving. It’s a two step process. First, interviewers assess whether or not you are similar to them. Once that is established, they project their positive personality traits onto you.

A big mistake interviewees make is thinking they have to continually emphasize how they are similar to their interviewer(s). Don’t waste your time. Once you have established how you are alike, the interviewer will do the rest.
