Continuing in our series of the questions you should not ask at the job interview, we will look at more of the questions that give away negative qualities about you that could impact your ability to get the job.
More Bad Questions to Ask at the Interview
Question: “Will you be able to train me to use [skill listed on resume]?”
Interviewer Hears: “Remember when I said I knew that one thing that I said I knew? Yeah, I lied. You know what else I liked about? No, you don’t. But I bet you are worrying now aren’t you? Hahaha, you are in for a treat!”
Question: “What is your policy on inter-office dating?”
Interviewer Hears: “You’re cute. I like the way you are sitting there, glaring at me as though there is no way I’m getting this job. Rawr.”
Question: “What does your company do?”
Interviewer Hears: “Oh man, when I applied to this job on Craigslist, there was no WAY I thought I was going to get it. I can’t believe you fools even called me in! Man. If I wasn’t on a bender last night I would have totally tried to find out what you do, but I was, so I didn’t. So what in the world do you guys do?”
Asking questions at the job interview is extremely important, and one of the best ways to ensure that you get hired. However, not all questions are created equal. Make sure that the questions you ask reflect positive qualities on you, and not questions that make it appear you are going to be a handful for the company if you are hired.
