3 things you should never say in a job interview

Are you having trouble landing a job, but not sure why? The right skills and an impressive resume may help you get an interview, but there is more to getting hired.

Experts will tell you it’s all about whether you present your character, personality, skills and values in a positive and relatable manner — that’s what attracts employers.

Following are just a few things you should never say or do in a job interview:

  • I don’t really know much about the job; could you tell me about it? Big mistake! Employers expect candidates to research the job before they arrive for an interview. You need to be able to explain confidently why you want the position. If you haven’t researched what the job is about, you may be wasting the employer’s time and your own. It’s okay to ask questions, but not anything you should already know from reading the job post or researching the company.
  • How much vacation time will I get? Nope! It’s not a good idea to ask any questions during the interview that make it appear your focus is not on working.
  • I really need to take this call. Oh, nay nay! Hiring managers and recruiters are amazed that interviewees actually answer their phones and respond to text messages during face-to-face interviews. Leave your phone in the car, or at least turn it off during an interview, so you are not tempted to answer it.

Stop and think for a moment before you say what is on your mind. If you have any doubt it’s something you should or shouldn’t say, play it safe and don’t say it.

Wishing you much success in your future employment!

Take your resume from ugly duckling to swan status

beautiful swanWhile there is no doubt the content of your résumé is what is most important, the ability to craft an attractive résumé is also vital. On average, a potential employer spends 10 – 30 seconds scanning a résumé, trying to get a quick grasp on what you have to offer. Using visuals can set your résumé apart from the rest and draw the reader’s eyes to what you want them to see.

A visually attractive résumé can make it easier for the reader to find and evaluate essential information. But this isn’t just about being pretty. Creating a professional image for yourself indicates you understand what you have to offer, and that you have the ability to organize and present it well.
