This month we are helping you with our top 5 tips cringey things you should try to avoid blurting out in an interview.

#1. I won’t let you down 

Ding, ding, ding, alarms bells going off everywhere! This gives the interviewer the impression you will let them down, instead provide examples on how you work hard.

#2. I tell you what it is, is

We hear this one more than you would imagine. This is not a grammatically correct statement, need we say more!

#3. I am desperate for work

Be confident! The word desperate suggests you don’t value yourself so why should they.

#4. To be honest

You should always be honest in an interview, saying this implies you have been lying about something.

#5. I am looking for more money

Employers want to know that you are a driven individual that enjoys working in that particular industry. Try to avoid discussing money unless brought up by the interviewer.
