Candidates often commit blunders that harm their employment prospects and most of the time they are completely unaware of what behavior of theirs tipped the scales against them. This article will take you through the eight most common mistakes and oversights that you need to be mindful of to maximize your chances of landing a job. 1. Limited Communication mode When you are applying to jobs, you need to be open to all modes of communication.
