Interview "Don'ts"
• Don't take your accomplishments for granted. No matter
how small, or how few, your accomplishments are important.
Package them and position them so that they demonstrate your
desirable Behavioral Competencies and show that you will be
successful at your new job. Don’t forget to make your
accomplishments measurable in terms of saving time and
money, or making your colleagues, clients, and superiors feel
more secure, respected and admired.

• Don't be too modest. Job interviews are not the time to be
modest. By all means, don't be cocky or overbearing, but DO
make flat out statements like "Based on my skills, and
experience with "X," I really do think that I would be a great
addition to your team." If anywhere, the job interview is the
right time and place to toot your own horn.

• Don't be constrained by official job descriptions. Your role
and responsibilities are often more than your past or future
"official titles" may indicate. Think of yourself as equally as
important as the Vice President or CEO within your sphere of
influence. If you think of yourself as an important person who
has a job to do, then others will think of you in the same way.
Indicate that you are willing to take on tasks outside the official
job description as necessary and appropriate.

• Never volunteer any negative information about yourself.
Don't testify against yourself. If asked your greatest weakness,
reply with a weakness you have conquered, or tell the
interviewer about a weakness that may actually indicate a
strength, like "sometimes I get impatient with teammates who
are not as organized as I am." Don't ever describe any job
requirement or task that you did not like.

• Don't criticize your former boss or employer. Talking trash
about past jobs, bosses, colleagues or clients never pays off – in
interviews and life in general. It is better to be a person who
does not gossip or talk trash about other people.

• Don't ever lie. Don't be dishonest in an interview. It will come
back around and get you. You can, however (within reason)
exaggerate, omit, be ambiguous if necessary, and talk in
superlatives. You are trying to sell yourself, after all. Advertisers
have no qualms about making strong claims about their product
or service. Do the same for yourself. Put your best foot forward
and pump yourself up – but never lie.

• Don't inquire about salary, vacations, or other benefits
until after you've received an offer, or when you are close
to the offer stage. It makes sense that you should build your
own perceived value as high as you can before you ask for the
money. You will be able to price yourself higher this way.
However, you must be prepared for a question about your salary
requirements. Some interviewers may even ask this up front. Go
into every interview with an idea of the probable salary range for
the position. Be prepared with an understanding of the market
rate for the type of position you are interviewing for. If the
subject of salary is brought up and you must address it, then ask
for the highest number. ALWAYS ASK FOR WHAT YOU WANT, or
you won't get it. You will regret low-balling yourself, so ask for
the high number, but make sure it is within the right range so
you don't appear stupid or greedy – or price yourself out of the
job.

• Don't feel pressured to answer every question. Sometimes
the best answer is "I don't know." If you don't know the answer,
say so. You can't know everything. Use times like these as an
opportunity to demonstrate your willingness to learn. By all
means, do not try to BS something that you know nothing about.
Change the subject or answer with a different S.T.A.R. Story if "I
don't know" is not in your vocabulary.

Besides these bullet points, just use common sense. Dress and groom
appropriately, don’t be late, bring a copy of your resume, don't smell
like smoke or food, get a good night's sleep, eat the right meal at the
right time, be polite, be relaxed, don't talk about politics or religion,
don't stress out excessively, and most importantly – work with this
Guide and PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE! You are going to ace it!
