  • Hi, I'm Katrina Szish for Howdini.

  • I'm joined by Melissa Brown, president of It's Just Lunch.

  • And we're going to talk about how to avoid job interview disasters.

  • Yes.

  • Makes me scared just thinking about it.

  • It could be pretty scary, if you don't know how to handle it or avoid it.

  • OK, well, luckily you're going to show us how to avoid it.

  • Correct.

  • So what are some of the biggest disasters and how can we avoid them

  • right off the bat?

  • Sure.

  • I think the biggest thing is to be on time.

  • Do not be late to a job interview.

  • In fact, it's recommended that you show up about 15 minutes early to the

  • job interview.

  • So things that I would do is I would make sure I know where I'm going.

  • I would scout out the location prior to the actual interview date.

  • Know where parking is.

  • That's a great point.

  • Know the building.

  • Know the location.

  • Just know your environment and your surroundings before going.

  • The other is wardrobe malfunction.

  • Yes.

  • Make sure you're looking nice and neat and professional for this interview.

  • So you always want to be business professional.

  • But make sure you're steamed clean.

  • Just make sure you're nice and ironed out, there's no wrinkles, so you look

  • nice and tidy and professional for that interview.

  • Also do your research.

  • Oh, very important.

  • Yes, it's extremely important.

  • You definitely want to know not only what the position entails but more

  • about the company as well as the person you're meeting with.

  • And then this one, I hate to bring it up but it's something you definitely

  • want to consider, is bad breath--

  • Oh, yeah.

  • --and just hygiene, in general.

  • Yes.

  • Not a pretty topic but bad breath can kind of be a deal

  • breaker across the board.

  • Oh, absolutely, absolutely, especially if you're interviewing for a position

  • where you're dealing with people.

  • Excellent point.

  • Yes.

  • So it's extremely important that you, obviously, maintain your

  • regular oral hygiene.

  • But also consider things that you can do to freshen yourself

  • up before the interview.

  • What are some of those things?

  • Oh, there's a bunch of things that you can do.

  • But what I would recommend is, especially if you have time to

  • prepare, about a week before start using Whitestrips.

  • It's a great way to give yourself a confident, fresh, pearly white smile.

  • And then right before the interview there's great whitening toothpaste

  • that you can use.

  • And that will help brighten up your smile.

  • Fantastic.

  • Yes.

  • And your smile is very important.

  • Not only does it show that you're confident.

  • But it also shows that you're a trustworthy person.

  • And maybe if you're in kind of a dicey situation, a smile can help

  • you get out of it.

  • Yes.

  • That's a good thing.

  • Yes, that's true.

  • What if you're jumping from job interview to job interview and you

  • don't have time to stop at home and brush your teeth or freshen up?

  • Right, and a lot of people don't.

  • Sure.

  • And they don't.

  • I mean just with hectic schedules or very busy they might be going from

  • interview to interview to interview.

  • Sure.

  • So there's a few things you can do is one consider what you're eating and

  • drinking throughout the day.

  • Stay away from smelly foods, like onions and garlic.

  • And make sure you're not drinking three cups of coffee.

  • But if you are, have a plan B. Have a backup plan.

  • Have a little refresh kit.

  • You can keep mouthwash in there as well as just a mini-toothbrush and

  • some mini-toothpaste.

  • That way you can freshen up before you head into your interview.

  • That sounds like a great weapon that everybody should carry at all times.

  • Yes.

  • So tell us about some job interview no-no's so we can avoid problems right

  • off the bat.

  • Sure.

  • And some of these may seem very, very obvious.

  • Tell them anyway.

  • All right.

  • Bring them on.

  • But the first one is just profanity.

  • Obviously, you don't want to be using profanity in your interview.

  • Two is just rudeness--

  • Sure.

  • --just being, yeah, cutting off the interviewer.

  • I mean there's certain things that you may not think are rude but could come

  • across rude to the interviewer.

  • Jokes, unless you're interviewing to be a comedian, I mean you really

  • shouldn't be throwing the jokes out--

  • Right.

  • --in the interview.

  • Eye contact, too, is very important, if you're not

  • making enough eye contact.

  • It's extremely important that you're letting them know how confident you

  • are and how trustworthy you are.

  • And I think that goes hand in hand with the smile.

  • OK.

  • And smiling appropriately, you don't have to be sitting there smiling the

  • whole time but smiling when it's needed or smiling at

  • the appropriate times.

  • You've interviewed a ton of people in your career, Melissa.

  • So what is the one worst job disaster experience that you can tell us about?

  • OK, and I don't know how much of a disaster it is.

  • But it has, I think, to do with the research.

  • It's extremely important that, when you're going to a job interview, you

  • research the position, you research the company, who you're meeting with.

  • And we hire a lot of matchmakers.

  • We've been in business for 20 years.

  • We have over 150 offices.

  • Wow.

  • So we meet a lot of matchmakers throughout the years.

  • And for some reason some people just have a tough time with our name.

  • We're It's Just Lunch.

  • And we get a lot of matchmakers come in and say For Lunch

  • Only or Just Lunch.

  • So I would recommend just doing your research.

  • OK, all great tips.

  • Thank you so much.

  • Thanks.

  • Melissa Brown from It's Just Lunch.

  • Right.

  • Absolutely.

  • All right, let's recap.

  • Don't be late.

  • Show up at least 15 minutes early.

  • And use that time to avoid the biggie, bad breath.

  • Bring a small bottle of mouthwash and a mini-brush to quickly freshen up.

  • No fidgeting in the interview.

  • Let your body language say that's you're confident.

  • No rudeness or lack of eye contact.

  • Look people in the eyes.

  • And use your best confidence tool, your smile.

  • On behalf of Scope, I'm Katrina Szish for Howdini.
