11 Things Not To Say In An Interview
Interviews can be, depending upon the situation and the interviewer, breezy, tricky, unnerving and sometimes downright draining. One has no way of knowing how an interview will proceed, which is why people are prone to sometimes say some pretty silly things while answering interview questions – one which they will not do otherwise in normal situations. Here we have attempted to compile some that are the most common.
When asked a typical interview question like “Where do you live?’ Witticisms like these are good for chuckling only in front of a mirror.
“I thrashed my manager.”
“Why did you not get an MBA?”
On being told by a graduate that he will be above you, a pompous post-graduate, in hierarchy.
“I will do anything you want me to do.”
On being asked an interview question like “How do you think you can contribute?”. Never a good idea to confuse job profiles. Unless its for a Karan Johar movie.
“I am the best you can get, at this price point.”
Let’s spare the overconfidence for Chulbul Pandey.
“What? Are you kidding me?”
When told about the salary and perks.
“You look ravishing…”
On being confronted with an especially good looking interviewer.
“Can I bring my dog to work?”
Why not? In fact bring your own dinosaur.
“I need to take a month’s leave a week after joining.”
Why not take that week off as well?
“When do I get my own cabin and Macbook?”
In due time my friend, in due time.
“Weakness? What’s that?”
On being asked a typical interview question “What is your weakness?”. Nobody says the above unless they are Hulk. Not even Barney.
