1. How much does the job pay?

Some interviewees ask this question before the interviewer has a chance to even ask his or her own first question, and this could be fatal.

To ask about money first makes it seem as if all you are after is money, possibly with as little work as possible.

As a rule, wages and salaries are not discussed during the first interview.

If they are discussed, this will occur at the end of the session and usually via the interviewer asking what salary you expect.

You may have three interviews altogether with one company. If money is discussed, it is up to the interviewer from the company to open up that subject.

If he asks you how much money you want, have a range of salaries ready to provide. First, however, research how much the job you want really pays in your town and state, then come up with a range of a yearly salary to request.

2. What does this company do?

A job candidate must research the company for which they want to work before going into a job interview. Get to know all that you should know concerning the organization

Do not get into the interview room and ask the interviewer to help you know what exactly the company does. This will be an outright demonstration that you never did your homework thus a show of not being serious about the role in question.

3. Using slang words, jargon or phrases

The interview is not a casual conversation. It is a formal conversation and requires the use of good English grammar.

There is not time enough during an interview for the interviewer to figure out what you are talking about.

Use of slang during the interview is not only disrespectful but also overly casual.

4. What are the benefits, bonuses, vacations and promotion prospects?

Learn the difference between being self-confidence and being selfish.

The first interview should be purely about what you can do for the organization. You are not doing them a favor by interviewing with them, so keep the benefits questions until the second interview or until the interviewer opens up the subject.

5. Using profanities and cursing of any kind

Avoid curse words or use of any kind of profanity in any job interview.

Terms like “damn”, “hell”, the F-word, or, of course, the N-word are not welcome in the interview space.

6. Stereotypical language.

Statements that bear or reflect stereotypes should be avoided.Do not refer to people of other genders, sexual orientations, nationalities, ethnicities, races, handicaps, religions, or any other diversity by using any slang, negative terms, slurs, or other denigrating language. Ever.

You must demonstrate your appreciation for diversity.

7. Critical or negative sentiments about a former employer

Bashing former bosses or employers in any way, lets the interviewer know that you will do the same to them if you leave their company. Instead, you can explain that you had a difference of opinion with your former employer in work philosophies or styles.

Do not dwell on your answer about an employer where things did not go so well for you, and make it short.

8. No, I have no questions for you.

When asked if you have any questions, NEVER say “No.”

A “no” tells the interviewer(s) that you are not very interested in the company and not very smart. So be smart.

Always prepare the questions beforehand or be smart enough to pick out certain gaps in the interview and turn them into questions to the interviewer.

9. I don’t have any weaknesses.

This strengths and weakness question may just come up and denying having a weakness is an outright lie which demonstrates your lack of self awareness and the ability to turn around a weakness into a pearl.

You can choose one of your still-developing skills and describe how you are working to improve it. This type of continuous improvement is always appreciated.

10. Your Life Story

When asked to tell about yourself, you could briefly share where you went to school, what you accomplished, where you have worked, and how you have helped your former employers. It can include a little about hobbies and volunteer work, but don’t dwell on these things.

Don’t tell the employer anything that will lead them to knowing your age (unless you are under 18), race, policies, gender-related orientation, religious beliefs, medical conditions, or other personal information.

Legally, until they are offering you a job, the employer is not allowed to even ask you if you are married, have children, or are planning these things in the future.

Interviewers can ask you what certifications and licenses you have relevant to the position.

If they ask you what nationality or tribe your last name is, politely answer that you don’t know how that is relevant to the job, but that you would like to discuss your qualifications.

If they ask you how old you are, tell them that you will gladly provide that information after you are hired.

Finally, do not bring up personal problems in a job interview, including divorce, breaking up with a girlfriend, bankruptcy, family drug problems etc.
