5 Things to Never Say in an Interview

  1. “Sorry, the Traffic was bad.”
    Don’t be late (but don’t be early either). It’s rule number one. Give yourself more than enough time to get to the interview site, and then go into the building 5-10 minutes before your appointment time. There’s no excuse for being late.
  2. “How did you get your job?”
    It’s rude to ask personal questions about the interviewer because you are the one being interviewed.
  3. “I don’t know.”
    This is not an acceptable answer for any question. If there is a challenging question, take a breath, count to five and fake it until you make it. The interviewer would rather you take a moment to think about an answer than mumble through an “I don’t know.”
  4. “No, I don’t have any questions.”
    Really? You don’t have any questions? This shows two things to the interviewer: 1. You didn’t do your research 2. You’re not enthusiastic about the position. You must, must, must ask questions.
  5. “What is the salary for this position?”
    Salary is usually handled when an offer is made. Don’t bring it up. This should definitely NOT be your question for the interview.
