10 Subtle Ways to Sabotage Your Interview

FireLink

Yawning/Falling Asleep



Problem: It doesn’t matter if you were up until 3 a.m. researching the company, if you yawn during an interview, it shows that you aren’t taking it seriously. A yawn can say a lot: That you’re a party animal who doesn’t get enough sleep, that you don’t know proper time management, or that you’re simply bored with the entire interview process.

How to Fix It: First and most importantly, make sure you get a full night of sleep before the interview. Have some caffeine before the interview, but not too much. Do some yoga. Stretch in the bathroom. Take a quick walk around the block. Anything you can do to get the blood flowing will not only wake you up, but will also help with your response time to questions.
