Avoid Common Mistakes when Job Hunting

Link Blog | March 4, 2021

Mistakes don’t go over well when you are job searching. In a competitive job market, even a typo is enough to knock you out of contention for a job. It is important to watch what you write, what you say, how you apply and how you pitch your qualifications to employers. At Link Personnel, these are things we prep our candidates on before their interviews.

Review some of the most common mistakes job seekers make so you can avoid making them.  

Dressing inappropriately for a job interview:

Dressing inappropriately for a job interview works both ways. What you are wearing is the first thing the hiring manager will notice, so be sure to make the best impression. Even for Video Interviews!

Not making a match between your qualifications and the job:

There needs to be a perfect, or as close to perfect as possible, match between the job and the candidate. At Link Personnel, we can help match you to your suitable job. It is up to you to show the hiring manager why you are perfect for the job.


Proofreading your own work can be difficult, your brain knows what you intended to write, so it will often skip over blatant errors that will jump out at anyone reading your CV. Enlist someone to have a read over it for you. Doing everything you can to communicate clearly and without mistakes can separate you from the pack.

Not doing your Research:

When you finally get an interview don’t forget to find out everything you can about the company beforehand. Showing that you have taken an interest in the company and know about their values will help prove that you are taking the opportunity seriously. Most companies will have an “About Us” page on their website, which is a great place to start.
