When going for a job interview, you are advised not to say certain things, as they are likely to disqualify you for employment. Some of those things you should not say includes;
1) “I GOT MY FORMER JOB SO I WOULDN'T LOOK JOBLESS”
No matter how bad your last job was, try as much as possible not to express your hatred for it or complain about what they did to you. Employers use this as a medium to know how well you could manage your former job.
Don't talk in a negative way, it reflects negativity about you. Instead of pouring out your hatred, use it as a credit to yourself: talk about how well you could cope in a harsh work environment.
2) “I WAS THE BEST STAFF IN MY DEPARTMENT.”
Employees know how a job can be, they know the ups and downs as well as how good or bad it gets. Even the professionals usually make mistakes, talk more of someone who is still learning.
It is better you talk about how you did your best and how your best created a very good outcome than talk about how you were the best in your former job.
3) “THE TARGET THAT WAS SET AT MY LAST JOB WAS TOUGH AND UNFAIR.”
Just like i said earlier, complaining about anything in your last job keeps you on negative side. It is better to say good things about your former job than blast it.
Complaining about the target you were given at your former job is like you are just giving excuses to avoid doing something productive. So while the complaint might be completely valid, don’t dwell on it, lest it makes you look bad.
4) “WHAT IS THE OPENING AND CLOSING TIME?”
Although this question is important to be asked, you should know when to ask it. Asking this question in the interview shows how unserious you are, and how eager you would want to leave the job once you start. After you start the job, you are free to ask any questions you want to ask, but never during the interview.
5) “I DON'T HAVE ANY QUESTION.”
It is always very important to ask questions at the end of the interview, no matter how little it seems. Saying you do not have any questions to ask seems like you do the have the requisite curiosity for the job.
Companies today require someone who is very insightful and can uncover a large deal of problems, therefore will most likely employ the help of an interviewee who shows lots of interest and inquisition.
Above all, you must know the kind of impression you want to create and should deliberately show it. All you should think about in your job interview is how you want to start anew with your new boss, rather than talking about all the bad things your former boss did to you.
