    I will select option C that is I want to avoid interrupting the person interviewing me.

    Interrupting the interviewer is one of the sure method to loose the job. It is very important to allow the interviewer to finish his talk first, We must never jump / interrupt the conversation. It is not only bad manners to do so but does also indicate our personality type.

    Yes, it does indicate impertinence on your part to interrupting when any person is speaking to you.

    Re: Question of the Day : Job Interview - Things to Avoid

    Hello All,

    Thanks for all comments. I would say best answer is C.

    Answer "a" is wrong because turning off your cell phone during a job interview is something that you definitely want to do.

    Answer "b" is not correct simply because showing up with clean clothes is basic job interview etiquette.

    Answer "c" is the best answer to this question because interrupting the person who is interviewing you is rude, and is one of the easiest ways to end up not getting the job, even if you do have stellar credentials.

    The best way to avoid this mistake is to always wait until you are asked a question before speaking.

    Best,
    Chandra
