Hate to say it but stuff happens, and it ain’t going to be pretty every freaking time. Big picture; After doing all the mental prepping in front of your mirror, giving yourself dozes of confidence boost, you land that office fully prepared to blow your prospective employer away with your undisputed intelligence but the moment you come face to face with them, that plan automatically flies out the window and so do you nerves and with that, you begin to blurt out series of random gibberish even you, would describe as STUPID. Lol… However some sins cannot just be forgiven regardless of how awkward anyone feels. 7 things you should never say in an interview;
Question – Tell us from the top of your head what you know about this company?
Don’t really know anything, I just saw the job ad and applied because I need cash and heard you pay really well – Are you serious?
Question – Tell us about yourself ?
Well what do you want to know?, there isn’t really much to tell… Surely you can do better than that!
Question – Why should we hire you for this position?
Honestly speaking I just need a job to survive – Well, say goodbye to that job!
Question – You’re late!
Yes I know, I’m so sorry, you know I had to cook for my husband and take care of the kids – Congratulations, you lost your job before you even had it in the first place!
How do you manage difficult people?
Well I do try but some people are just plain hard to work with…it got real bad that one time a co worker and I had to trade blows man to man – Don’t get me started!
Tell me about your former boss?
My former boss was absolutely mean and between you and I, it was hell working for him … the trauma – Bad mouthing a boss is never a good idea – How stupid can you be?
Do have a nice day
Thank you very much for the opportunity and by the way I think you’re really cute; would you like to go out for a drink after this?
HELL NO… Don’t even think about it!
