5 Things You Should Never Say In a Job Interview-
1. Don't talk bad about your company. Don’t talk bad about the people. Don't say that you didn't like working there; no matter how it comes up.
I mean, maybe you hated working there, maybe you hated your boss, but when they ask you questions, “Did you like working there? Did you like your boss?” The answer is, “Yes, I did. I liked working for my boss. I liked the people. I liked the company. I liked the culture. I liked everything about them. It's a shame that I have to leave. I'm sorry I have to leave, but I'm looking for greener pastures, greater opportunity. I'm looking for more responsibility.”
Say any of that except that you didn't like working there, you didn't like what they did or anything like that. Because if you didn't like working there or you didn't like your boss, it'll be in no time flat that you'll be saying the same things about them when they hire you; you'll find reasons not to like them, you'll find reasons not to like your boss.
That's just the way it goes; people who don't like where they worked at, it doesn't take them long to not like the new place. That's just the way it goes; that's human nature.
So, you don't want to communicate that to them in the interview; no matter how it comes out, even if they ask you, “How do you like that company?” “Well, you know, I don't really like working there anymore.”
No, you like working there and you like the people. Because otherwise, you'll get labeled as cancer. You get labeled as cancerous when you're the type of person that goes around, talking smack about all the people or the company, the policies, the things that you don't like. And companies get rid of people like that.
Now, I know that's not you. You know why? I know that's not you because you're here watching me today and you're trying to better yourself. And people who are trying to better themselves, they're not the cancerous type of people.
I mean, sure, there might be something about their company that they didn't like and it could be very genuine reason that they didn't like certain things. Just don't say that in the interview; do not mention that in any way, shape or form.
Okay. So, the next one here; number 2.
2. A lot of candidates go in and they're so desperate to work at a job they'll say, “I'll do anything. It doesn't matter what it is; I'll do anything.”
Now, these are usually people who are not employed right now (maybe they've been out of work for six to nine months, maybe even two years) and they are desperate for a job and they will do anything.
But if you go into a job interview and say, “You know what? I don't care what it is; I'll do it. I'll do anything. Just give it to me.” So, when you do this, you end up showing a certain level of desperation that just doesn't come out very well.
