4 Simple Interview Mistakes to Avoid

When it comes to interviews, having a polished resume and knowing what not to do is just as important as knowing what not to do. Like most human encounters, job interviews are very subjective, so you cannot simply rely on the fact that you have a stellar resume. You have to appeal to the panel and make them like you. Now, there has been a lot written on the dos of interviews, so in this post, our Pittsburgh limo service specialists have decided to address the don’ts of job interviews.

 

Arriving Late

This the first and most obvious don’t on our list. Arriving late to a job interview shows the interviewers that you either don’t care much about the position you are interviewing for or you are generally an unreliable individual. For your job interview you should plan to be there 10 to 15 minutes early.

For that purpose, consider employing the services of our Pittsburgh transportation service. Our reliable staff will handle all the logistics, taking into account distance, traffic density, weather, etc., and a professionally trained chauffeur will be there to pick you at the most appropriate time. Our trusted chauffeurs have an intimate knowledge of their area of operation and will use the most convenient routes to ensure that you are at the venue ahead of time.

 

Dressing Inappropriately

It is extremely important that the interviewers perceive your dressing as professional, unless of course the position you are applying for demands less formal attire. Nonetheless, even if you are applying for a non-professional position, go business-casual as opposed to full-on casual. If you are applying for a professional job, however, it goes without saying that you should dress formally. Lastly, ensure that you appear well-dressed and put together no matter what attire suits your position.

 

Lack of Preparation

Think of a Job interview as an examination; it is absolutely necessary for you to study the organization you are interviewing for in order for you to clearly articulate how your skills will be a good fit for their business. Remember, several people will be interviewing for the position and, to stand out in the crowd, you need to be able to demonstrate knowledge of the company’s history as well as its most recent dealings. This will show the interviewers that you are absolutely interested, not just in the position, but in the organization as whole. Besides that, knowing that you have done your homework will calm your nerves and help you demonstrate confidence during the interview, which will be to your advantage.

 

Talking about Salary

The interview is not the time to be discussing compensation, even if the interview process has several stages and you are at an advanced level. Do not be the one to initiate talks about the compensation that comes with the position unless the interviewers themselves bring it up. This includes matters of benefits, vacation days, flex-time, telecommuting options, and so forth. Rest assured that all these subjects will be discussed at the final stages of the interview after the interviewers are certain they want to go with you.

From our clients:

Regency always does an outstanding job! You never fail to meet the high expectations that we have for transporting our customers, or individuals from our Corporate Office.
Booked a limo for my kids and their friends for prom. We got an 8 passenger stretch Lincoln town car which was very nice. The limo was clean and very new looking. The exterior was clean and no blemishes. The driver was very courteous and attentive to details. My kids told me he was an excellent driver; he opened the door for them all the time and treated them like VIP's. Regency has great service, great drivers and in my opinion the most up to date vehicles. Also the pricing is exceptionally reasonable and affordable.
I feel very secure to use Regency Shuttle. You make my travel less stressful and I can relax knowing I will get to my destination safely.
Our client changed her flights several times which affected the airport location and pick up time. Regency worked with us last minute and did not charge us for all the changes, we appreciate that! Thanks for the great customer service!
Your company has changed my life. Getting to and from the airport is wonderful now. You've taken the hassle out of travel. I also have used your service to pick up my children when they're arriving late at night at the airport. I'm completely secure in the fact that your drivers will check for delayed flights and will be there to meet them no matter the time. We've also used your company to book drivers in other cities. We are completely satisfied with your services.
Service and staff have always been exceptional. Highly recommend your business to anyone who asks.
Whether requests were made by phone or email, follow up and confirmation would come immediately. This communication instilled confidence in the pick up of our guests regardless of where they were going in the city. We have also used Regency as our point of contact for other cities and countries outside the US when executives were traveling and we felt the same confidence that our requests would be fulfilled precisely as we asked.
