Ever wondered why you never got that call back from a recent interview you just went to? Are you thinking that maybe you just didn’t make it to the shortlist because you didn’t meet the employers requirements? Still confused I see…. Let’s just break it down and get straight to the point.
Every now and then, we go to an interview with the hope to impress the hiring manager and prove to them that you are the right person for the job. Then without knowing, you end up making a wrong move or two by saying something that left your employer concerned and doubtful about hiring you.
Now that needs to stop! Here are the words that you must not say at your next interview.
1. “S—, d—, f—, etc.”
Avoid swearing by all means. Don’t use curse words or slang terms. You will make an impression that you have poor communication skills. You might also come out as if you are negative.
Say yes, it is more appropriate. Don’t sound careless like you don’t care. Keep in mind that you are at an interview. Not at the park. If you use this work you will sound like you don’t have a good vocab.
Filler words like “like” can make you look like you lack confidence—or worse, the ability to communicate clearly on the job. You need to erase “like” from your vocabulary for good.
