And thatâs not all. Even if you have all the right qualifications and show up looking your best, itâs easy to lower your chances of getting hired by letting the wrong words slip out of your mouth.Before you head out to meet your next prospective employer, consider these six additional things you should never say in a job interview.âSorry Iâm late.âEven if you have to leave ridiculously early, find a way to be on time to your interview. âIf you canât be punctual while asking for the job, how late will you be after you get hired?â says career coach Alex Simon.âDo you mind if I get this?âAnswering a call or a text during an interview is rude and gives the impression the interview â and the prospect of getting hired â arenât your priorities. âLeave your cell phone in the car, at home, anywhere, but donât bring it into the interview,â Simon says.âIâm a perfectionist.âIf you get the question about your greatest weakness, donât try to answer with a strength instead, says Jim Giammatteo, author of âNo Mistakes Interviews.â âIf you say youâre a perfectionist, or a workaholic, you might as well grab your briefcase and go home.

If you can do 75 percent or more, go ahead and apply. Then spotlight your strengths, rather than your doubts or deficits.ââI want to talk to dolphins.âTalkToCanada CEO Marc Anderson is often involved with interviewing prospective employees and says one candidate he met was eager to talk about his love of dolphins. âHe said that he wished for us all one day to communicate with dolphins as they can awaken our spirituality.â The revelation didnât help him win the job.Information about odd aspects of your personal life can make the interviewer feel awkward, which is bad for your job chances, says Anderson. âHave all the weird hobbies you want, but donât share them if theyâre too far out there.â
