Ten Interview Questions That Make You Sound Dumb

By | source:Here Feb 4th, 2017

There’s nothing like the anxiety that shows up a few minutes before a job interview. You’re crossing your fingers and hoping nerves don’t get the best of you.

Every interviewer is different, so it’s hard to say what will get you your dream job offer. It’s a easier to pinpoint questions every interviewee should avoid.

Don’t ask, “How quickly can I get promoted?” Instead, inquire about lateral moves and moving up within the company. You’ll sound like someone genuinely invested in the company.

Other things to avoid: Don’t ask about employee discounts when you don’t even have the job yet. It’s also advised to not complain about noise or temperature when trying to wow a hiring manager.

This infographic says not to ask about dress code, but I’ve found that it’s all in phrasing. While it’d be silly to say, “Do you have a lot of rules about what you can wear here?”, if you word it well, you’ll sound like a potential employee curious about the company culture.

As you prepare for your next interview, make sure you read the most common job interview mistakes. Good luck!
