What Not to Say During an Interview

By Alexi Calvo | AllHealthcare

Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid


Did you exaggerate a little bit on your resume? Keep that to yourself. We don’t have to divulge all of our secrets. Your resume got you in the door and now you can finally prove yourself so don’t self-sabotage. Other ways to self-sabotage are mentioning that you are planning to have another child, moving out of town, have the itch to go back to school, or have any medical issues. You want to present yourself as low-maintenance and honest.

If you are interviewing at several other organizations don’t tell the interviewer. Even though you may think this makes you more desirable, it can always backfire. You don’t want to notify your current company’s HR department that you are looking for a job elsewhere unless you like the idea of walking around with a “Fire Me” sticker on your forehead. Keep your career moves to yourself and be smart about what you divulge.
