There are two that really stick out to me: seeming disinterested and overstating your qualifications. If we express interest in interviewing you, it doesn’t mean that it’s in the bag—if you’re late to the interview, seem checked out or disinterested, or if you didn’t take time to look at the website and find additional information about the company, it tells us that your excitement level towards working for TCS is not where it needs to be. It’s also very important to be honest about your skill level. It’s okay if you don’t have a lot of exposure to java, for example, because we’ll put you through a training program and get you up to speed, but it’s not okay to overstate your qualifications on your resume or at a career fair– our technical interviewers will catch that pretty quickly.
Q: What mistakes can a candidate make that will take them out of the running?
