6. Don’t lie or bash.
Sure, you may have had some bumps in the road, but don’t lie. If you were fired from your previous job, have a pre-organized answer to explain yourself. Sometimes, showing how you picked yourself up from defeat is your biggest champion in an interview. Also, when you’re asked why you left a job, never, ever, ever, ever bash your old boss or colleagues. It just makes you look like a difficult person to work with.
For some of you, this seems like common sense, but you would be surprised the horror stories I’ve heard. One time, an employer told me that a person turned a resume in with a picture of a rose on it and with the contact email of hotsugarmama@[edited out for privacy]. Seriously, why shoot yourself in the foot before you even get an interview? Chances are with those credentials, you’re going to have a pretty hard time in there as it is.
