Think back to your last job interview. How did it go?

Chances are, you researched the job, the company, and your interviewer -- just like you’d research your prospect and their business. That’s second nature to you.

But while research is important (47% of hiring managers said that having “little or no knowledge of the company” is applicants’ most common misstep), it’s not enough. Everything from not smiling enough, having a weak handshake, and not making eye contact can tank your changes at landing a job. In fact, 33% of hiring managers said they knew whether they’d hire a candidate in the first 90 seconds of the interview.

The infographic below from Classes and Careers is chock-full of tips and facts about interviews -- never lose a job again because one of these mistakes. Happy job hunting!
