Top 10 things not to say in an interview

We all know that the job market can be tough and competitive, so setting yourself apart from the crowd is vital.

Once you’ve got past the first hurdle of being invited for interview, the second is getting through it without saying something you’ll live to regret.

Here are ten things you sould definately avoid saying during an interview.

1. “I’m too much of a perfectionist”
When asked the inevitable question about your weak points, try to avoid the obvious answer and be honest. Always be prepared to share some weaknesses, but make sure the quality you chose is not central to the job.

Finding a weakness from your past that you have worked towards improving can be an effective strategy. Come up with this trait as part of your interview preparation so that you won’t be left speechless.
