10 Subtle Ways to Sabotage Your Interview
Cell Phone Ringing
NEXT | NOT LOOKING INTERVIEWER IN THE EYE >>
Beyond the annoyance of being interrupted during the interview, a ringing cell phone can say many things. You aren’t taking the interview seriously. You think there are more important things than this job and even your nursing career.
You have no problem inconveniencing other people. And putting the phone on vibrate is no better, since most cell phone vibrations are audible. Picture the interviewer totally distracted, trying to figure out where that buzzing is coming from.
How to Fix It:
Turn your phone completely off during your interview. No exceptions. If you have an excusable planned emergency, let the interviewer know that before he begins, but make sure you have a really good reason.
