Are you fresher or experienced interviews are the integral part of your career. It is not child's play to prepare for an interview. Lot of different thing are to kept in mind. Lot of things need to be taken care. Here we list out the things one should never say/do in an interview.

1. You don't select me? You are at loss. 

 ‘Why should we / I select you?’ This is one of the common question candidate face in an interview. Never end up saying this : ‘You will be in loss if you don’t select me!’. Because as a candidate you don't know how much you are qualified for the job. You have no idea about your competitors as well. You have no idea about their expertise and qualification. Simply don't over estimate yourself.

2.  Volume of knowledge matters.

You must have experienced it, if you have once appeared in any interview. You have mentioned something in your resume and the interviewer is asking the same question again. Then you don’t need to repeat the stuff you just mentioned there in your resume. But you need to have knowledge in that particular stuff and need to explain it properly. 

3. Never be bad mouth about your past employer.
When you posed a question to tell about your past employer. Never ever have a bad mouth about your former employer in any interview what so ever. How to tackle is that, you are supposed to act neutral. Neither praise your past employer nor be bad mouth about them.

4. I was a gem when I was in High School.
Nobody really cares about what you did in your school, unless you are less than 21 years! You will certainly look pathetic in front of the interviewers if you say anything related to your school achievements.

5. I can do anything for this Job.
I know you all always say this at the time of interview but I’ll suggest not to say this ever.
It shows, you are working for Money not for your passion all hiring manager knows if work is not of your interest then you will never be happy and all companies want their employee to be happy so that their productivity can be increased day by day.

Before going for an interview make a broad search about the job role and get some knowledge about the job type. If HR is asking this question then give an answer related to the job role only.

6. You can get it on my resume.
This is the biggest mistake freshers do when interviewer asks what are you Skills, Projects you worked on, Hobbies etc.Interviewer want you to tell more beyond a written word. they are actually evaluating your communication and social skills. Are you articulate? Should you be client-facing, or are you someone we need to keep hidden in the basement next to the IT lending library?” If interviewer is asking you about your skills hobbies etc then don’t reference your resume instead use it as your moment to shine.

7. I just got late due to Traffic.

Remember 'Punctuality is key'. Your interviewer doesn't want you to arrive for work 20 minutes late every morning. So be punctual always.

8. Abruptly asking about salary.

You may not sure when the interview gets over. Unless the topic is initiated by the interviewer, don’t open your mouth regarding salary or package.

9. I am really really nervous.
Never ever say this! Don’t be honest always. Not even single company wants to hire someone who does not have confidence. If interviewer is asking this to you Are you nervous then say confidently “No, why I should be? I am going to start my career in your company then I should be happy!”

10. Stay away from this word "Almost"
Almost is not a complete word at least in the context of interview. In simple words, it takes away everything from you. It apparently shows that you are incomplete and sometimes incompetent. For instance, ‘Almost got promoted; I almost completed!’ It literally means you did not complete it. So, in a job interview, never say anything featuring the word, almost. Focus on exhibiting your accomplishments.
