5 sentences to avoid saying in an interview

Interviewers make quick judgments about candidates within the first few minutes of conversation.

It can be a big red flag if a candidate comes across as under-confident, uninterested, or arrogant.

Therefore, here are some phrases you should avoid saying:

“It’s in my resume.”

Always remember that a resume is very important but not more than a conversation or a face-to-face interview.

So make sure to give respect to the interviewer and handle every question wisely and in a detailed manner. Even if it’s written in bold letters in your resume.

“My last company was really bad.”

Not every company you work for can provide you with a great experience, but that doesn’t allow you to badmouth your previous company. It also reflects your disloyalty to your interviewer, which can bring your points back to the minus.

“I don’t have much experience, but…”

Never highlight the negatives about your resume or experiences. However, you can be honest and smart at the same time.

Highlight how you have been able to acquire the skills you have mentioned in your resume.
Always remember: some experiences are unpaid too.

In the next 5 years, I see myself as a business owner or a CEO.

When an interviewer wants to hire you, they make sure to consider that you are going to be a long-term asset.

Hence, during the interview, make sure you are maintaining a balance between your enthusiasm and the place you are sitting.

Thanks, but I don’t have any questions.

This is a sincere example of how you are losing a great opportunity by saying this sentence. Cross-question doesn’t question your professionalism rather it creates an impact as well as a remark of being curious and enthusiastic about the job.

Your choice of words during an interview can make a significant difference in your chances of success. Remember, interviews are not just about your qualifications but also about how you present yourself, so make every word count.
