More Amazing Interview Mistakes from (Don't Be) Dave

Dave Making a Bad ImpressionThe latest installment of Pongo's Don’t Be Dave video series, Dave's Amazing First Impression, is an object lesson in how to say and do all the wrong things when you're meeting someone for the first time. It's clear that hapless job seeker Dave Hetherington didn’t learn much from his recent video resume debacle.
As career expert Barbara Safani pointed out in an AOL Jobs blog post about Dave, interviews are a lot like first dates, and Dave makes at least eight classic mistakes in his.

It's hard to pinpoint which of Dave's many faux pas takes the cake. His remarks about the woman's appearance are totally inappropriate, but it seems his propensity for over-sharing is what really gets him in trouble. Did he really need to share the fact that he's completely focused on money right now, because he owes a huge gambling debt to a guy in Philadelphia?

Fortunately, Dave's loss is your gain. If you watch what Dave does and consistently do the opposite, you'll make a great first impression, whether you're on a first date or a job interview.
