Taking feedback badly. Nobody's perfect, so it's inevitable that you will at some point receive negative feedback. The key is to learn how to take constructive criticism well.
Doing the bare minimum. In this job environment, you can't rely on the ability to skate by with minimum effort. Companies are looking for workers who can go the extra mile.
