We are caught up in times where there's an abundance of job changes going on. This is mostly due to the recent situation with the economy.

There are a large amount of job openings with the majority of companies. At the same time wage increases have not necessarily accelerated, therefore people are on the move.

If you are going to be involved in a job interview, don't blow your chances of getting hired with some absolute mistakes. Simply use some common sense on most of these.

For example, a limp handshake will guarantee you won't get hied right at the start. Chewing gum and having your phone turned on will do the same, especially if you answer it.

Be careful on your attire. Being too sharply dressed can be a turn off and so can outdated clothing. Flat shoes, extremely tall heels, and unusual attire send the wrong impression during job interviews.

As far as what you should do, I will offer this advice: Study up ahead of time, because the more you know about the company you are applying for a job at, will tell the hiring manager that you are the person for the job.

The best advise of all, is to stand up straight and look like you mean business!

Follow up an interview with an email to show you are interested.
