Recognizing some of the most common interviewing "don'ts" can help you present a favorable and honest picture of your skills and experience. Here are some frequent mistakes and how to avoid them: 

Don't skip researching the company. Our research found the biggest mistake applicants make in interviews is not knowing enough about the firm. Check out local business journals, tap members of your network for their insights and work with a recruiter who can offer additional information. 

Don't let nerves undercut communication skills. Keep your responses to interview questions concise. When asked a question, take a deep breath, pause and collect your thoughts before you begin to speak. Avoid verbal crutches (e.g., "um," "like," "uh") and refrain from making jokes or discussing controversial subjects. 

Don't exaggerate your interest or qualifications. While it's important to express enthusiasm for the position, candidates who answer every question with upbeat eagerness may come across as insincere. Also avoid overstating your qualifications. 

Don't be negative. Avoid disparaging comments regarding former employers, colleagues and companies. Also stay away from self-deprecating comments, which do not support a positive image or demonstrate competence.
