Questions/Areas to Avoid While Interviewing
  • Questions that are answered in the company's annual report or employment brochure.
  • Salary or benefit information in the initial interview. The recruiter may bring the topic up, you should not initiate the topic.
  • Questions of a personal nature that would put the interviewer on the defensive (educational background, marital status, past work experience, etc.)
  • Questions that have already been answered during the interview. Do not repeat them unless you need clarification.
