There are some things that you should keep to yourself during a job interview – even if you’re thinking them. Be conservative in what you say and share, and keep the focus on your skills and qualifications for a job.
The interviewer isn’t interested in your personal life, your vacation plans, or why you really need to get hired for the job. He or she wants to know why you’re the best- qualified person for the job. If you don’t think you have all the qualifications, don’t mention it.
If you’re not sure how you’re going to get to work, arrange child care, want to take vacation time already or the schedule isn’t perfect, don’t mention it.
The same is true for how you really feel about your current (or last) employer. Negativity doesn’t go over well during job interviews. Companies want to hire positive people, not complainers.
