New Delhi : So, you have cleared the written test and got shortlisted for a face-to-face interview! Congratulations! And, you have done well in the interview as well. But, somehow, you did not receive a call back from the HR of the company.

You have been waiting for some time and suddenly you were communicated that you have been rejected. Shocking, isn't it!  You might wonder where things went wrong. If such incident happened to you then there is possibility that you make some innocent mistakes during the interview which spoilt the win-win situation.  Our readers have requested us to come up with a few tips on improving the interview skills and we had words with our experts.

Scroll down the page to see the common mistakes most people do in their interview sessions.

1) Don’t discuss personal problem during the interview, as it might give an impression that you can’t deal well with challenges at the workplace.

2) Failure to explain salary expectations may present your greedy face.

3) Lazy body language will surely let you down before the HR team. Make sure you are confident and are not sitting with your arms crossed.

4) Postures like sitting with your hands on the table, continuously shaking your legs or not maintaining eye contact are indicators that you either bored, under-confident or anxious.

5) Doing less homework/research about the job and company you are looking for may be the reason behind the rejection.

6) Always remember, your first impression is the last impression. Do not arrive late for the interview; don't look aggressive and don't forget to say thanks to the interviewer.

7) Make sure you present yourself as a passionate and professional worker who would fit well in the company’s work culture.

8) Your poor communication skill may lead to failure. Make sure you are polite during the entire interview, think before you answer any question.

9) Ask the right questions at the right time and follow up with the recruiter after the interview

10) Have a proactive approach, and give an idea about what kind of employee you would be once you join.

11) Remember not to say anything wrong about your present company and colleagues. In this way, the interviewer might get the impression that you are not a loyal employee of your current organisation.

12) Last but not the least, dress up smartly, meaning, be in clean and formal outfit to look presentable.
