Job interviews are tricky.

Once you’ve done enough of them, you start to get the hang of it. Still, there’s a lot that can go wrong when you sit down and try to convince a stranger that you’re a great fit for their organisation.

You might say the wrong thing and come across as dishonest or lazy. You might panic and flub an easy question, like I did.

Or terrible circumstances beyond your control may just conspire to make you look like a fool in front of the hiring manager.

That’s why Business Insider wants to hear all about the worst mistake you’ve ever made in a job interview.

It can be a situation that you brought upon yourself, or just a misunderstanding that arose through no fault of your own.
