RealSimple.com: How to Make a Good First Impression

4 of 6

Don’t Take All the Credit

When I interview a job candidate, I look to see if she is too self-serving. Does she appear to exaggerate her own contributions? Blame colleagues for things that went wrong? When you ask her to share her weaknesses, does she merely dress up her strengths? “I care too much.” “I work too hard.” (Ugh.) Just be humble, and let people know that you hold yourself to the same standards to which you hold others.

Ben Dattner is an organizational psychologist, a workplace consultant, and the author of The Blame Game ($26, amazon.com).
