6 Sloppy Speech Habits to Avoid

Diane Diresta | Monster Contributing Writer

You may look good on paper or in your suit, but if you’re looking to nail your big interview, looks aren’t everything. How you sound is often more important. But many job seekers let careless speech habits sink their chances of landing that plum job.

The Bottom Line: You don’t have to study elocution to speak well. Simply slow down, take time to pronounce all the syllables, and leave slang at home.

Companies want job candidates who are well-spoken and articulate, and recruiters won’t represent a job candidate if they don’t match the client’s profile. According to Lori Zelman, vice president of human resources at Strategic Workforce Solutions in New York City, “The people most highly sought after are the ones who are succinct in the explanation of their work experience.”

Here are six common language mistakes and how to keep them from sabotaging your interview or meetings with clients.


#1: Non-Words

    Particulary true since they have upped the ante and there are many who are bi-lingual and multi-lingual. You should definitely be able to articulate. And shouldn't be nervous. I don't think I have ever been nervous. Either you like me or you don't. Regardless of whoever flubbed the interview.

    I am very thankful for these great advices,I think these advices are available for everybody and it's easy to understand.I agree that it's very important the way you sound on a job interview,you can look amazing but as there are people who just open a mouth and all the first positive impression dissapears.As for me, I have another problem,I am usually nervous before the job interview and it's not so easy for me to stay calm and do not show my emotions.Anyway,thanks for advices,it's very helpful information.

    Dave I hope that things are moving for your search for employment. Thought this might be a little help when you get an interview.
