Posted on: May 29, 2013

Get Hired Words on Round Green Button

You often hear about good questions to ask during an interview. But what about those things you shouldn’t ask? Here are 10 questions from Forbes.com that could hurt your chances.

  1. Don’t ask questions you could have answered with a Google search.
  2. Never ask to change job details, schedule or salary.
  3. Don’t ask about gossip you heard.
  4. Avoid too many questions about the interviewer’s background.
  5. Don’t as about pay, time off and benefits. Save that for after they make an offer.
  6. “Do you do background checks?” (You’ll look like you have something to hide).
  7. “What does your company do?” (See question No. 1 above.)
  8. “How quickly can I be promoted?”
  9. “How soon can I apply for other positions in the company?”
  10. “Do you monitor email or Internet history?”
