Top interview mistakes

Written for attorneys (here and here), but advice extends to MBA's as well:
  • Typos in your resume or cover letter.
  • Invest in a comfortable or well-fitting suit, ... A flashy or ill-fitting suit can highlight a student's lack of comfort or familiarity with a professional workplace.
  • They don't hit up enough employers.
  • They think they only have to be nice to partners and attorneys. ... Some are rude to secretaries. Other people notice.
  • They get discouraged too easily. ... They don't circle back and ask for guidance and help in getting to the next step.
  • They wear iPods in the office.
  • They don't want face time. They'll say they just want to be judged on their work.
