You only have few precious minutes to make a case as to why you are the best for the job.

What do you do with those few minutes? Making a good impression on the hiring manager or making them cringe?

You might think because you have the experience and skills and have put together a refined CV as well as prepared for the interview you are good to go! Spelling mistakes and not answering interview questions are not the only mistakes that could jeopardize your chances. Sometimes it’s the smallest things or mistakes you are not even considering that would cost you that dream job.

Here are some annoying behaviors hiring managers hate:

Guilt-tripping the hiring manager into giving you the job

Telling a potential employer all your family problems and how badly you need a job will get your application thrashed. Doing this only places you in a bad light and portrays you as unprofessional. The employer is running a business, not a charity home.

If you have the necessary skills and experience required for the job, go ahead and prove it to the hiring manager. But if you think he will have pity on you and give you a job that you don’t deserve then you are making a mistake.

Applying for every job

A hiring manager advertises 4 jobs he needs to fill and you will be like “Let me apply for all of them, who knows they might just consider me for one” Are you playing a game of gamble with the jobs you apply for?

The only thing this behavior will fetch you is a blacklist! No hiring manager will take you seriously when all you do is make his work harder by cluttering his inbox with your phony applications. Even when he eventually gets a job opening that fits your person specification, he will still not consider you.

Only apply for jobs you qualify for!

Sending out mass email applications where all in copy can see each other

You are sending out your CV and Ccing multiple hiring managers of different companies in your email. You have only one job – Apply for a job! Why would you be so lazy about it? This is so unprofessional.

However, if it happens that you must send your application (especially if it is a cold job search email) to a large number of emails, use the Blind Carbon Copy (BCC) feature. This will make the email addresses invisible to other recipients of the email.

See where to find the BCC feature below:






Jumping at every chance to badmouth your former employer

Even if there was bad blood between you and your previous employer, badmouthing them to a potential employer is career suicide. It reflects negatively on you as a person as well as your career. The hiring manager will see you as toxic thereby ruining your chances of getting the job.

Sending your job application from a company email address

If you think applying for a job using your company email address will show the hiring manager that you are in employment then you are making a mistake. You are sending a bad signal to the potential employer. It only means you are using company time and resources to apply for jobs and you will do the same if they employ you.

Only use your personal email address when applying for a job.

Many jobseekers are doing these things, make sure you are not one of them.
