An interview usually lasts 40 minutes right? BUT when over 2,000 bosses were surveyed, they said they knew within the first 90 seconds if they would hire that person or not! The survey also found some other interesting facts. Below is the percentage of interviewers who said doing THIS one particular thing turned them right off to that person.

-70% indicated applicants were too fashionable or trendy (that one is interesting). -67% indicated failure to make eye contact. (makes sense to me) -55% the way the candidate dressed, acted or walked through the door. (smile people) -47% of clients who had little or no knowledge of the company. (bad, bad, bad) -38% was a tie – quality of voice and overall confidence/lack of a smile. -33% for bad posture. (sit up straight guys!!!) -26% because the handshake was too weak. (my friend needs to work on this) -21% for crossing their arms over their chest during the interview. (ya look BORED or angry)

Keep working hard everyone and stay away from getting caught up in the things interviewers hate!!

I worked at a college for many years as a professional career advisor, so these tips are what I shared with my students who were trying to find a job in school or post-graduation! I have been told it helped them a great deal before they went to job fairs as well.

HANDSHAKES. Everyone is going to judge you on your handshake. You want to make sure to look them in the eye, and introduce yourself. Your grip should be firm, but don’t try to break their hand! If you’re worried about missing their hand, look and aim for their elbow before you look them in the eyes - it will help! If you get clammy hands when nervous, discretely wipe them on your pants before shaking someone’s hand.. No one wants to shake a sweaty hand!

RESUMES. Bring more than you need. Make sure you’ve edited and re-edited and had someone else look your resume over. You don’t want to have mistakes in your resume. Remember, a resume is just a brief overlook on who you are, be prepared to talk about your experiences and skills in detail. Practicing in front of a mirror can help.

ATTIRE. You should always dress up. Wear a suit and tie, or a pantsuit. It doesn’t matter what kind of job you’re looking for, everyone is impressed by someone who looks well put together. Make sure your clothes fit and are ironed/stain free the day before so you have no last minute scrambling to find something to wear.

PREPARE. Most job fairs should have an area where you can grab some water and relook over your resume and see what companies are actually at the fair. Do a little research on the ones that interest you so you aren’t going in totally blind OR prepare before. If you have something of note on your resume that will prompt a question, be ready to tell the story about it in a minute or two.

BUSINESS CARDS. Always ask for a business card for the booths you go up to! Most people will be ready to hand you theirs, but if they don’t you should ask. You want to do this so you can follow up with them the next day. If you have a business card (not a bad idea to stand out from the stack of resumes they’ll have!), give it to them when they give you theirs.

I hope this helps!! Job fairs can be especially confusing if you’ve never been to one. I also send my students over to https://career.berkeley.edu/Fairs/fairsTips if they have more questions.

Did you know there's a shortage of Tech Workers in the US? Well I had no idea this was an issue and honestly never gave a tech career much thought because I don't have a work background in tech. I've always heard tech workers earn big bucks but the thought of going back to school at this point in time in my career just isn't practical move; besides I've always been a little intimidated of technology. Well, seems like now you don't need a four year college degree to get a high paying tech job. Big companies are turing to coding boot camps, community colleges, and career education programs for candidates to fill these jobs due to the shortage of workers. Anyone here ever have any success transitioning into a tech job without a related degree or formal college tech training? https://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/07/why-ibm-wants-to-hire-employees-who-dont-have-a-4-year-college-degree.html
