We asked our Specialty Chemical Recruiters and Life Science Recruiters what was one thing to avoid during an interview. See their answers below

  • Don’t interrupt; avoid filler hesitation words: “uh, um, well”
  • Skipping straight to the Compensation Question
    • Talking about money/benefits/compensation related questions
  • Avoid airing dirty laundry and speaking badly about your current/past employer
  • Not asking any questions
  • Talking too much- you should be asking questions and having the interviewer weigh-in as well; failing to ask high-level open ended questions.
  • Humble brag.  Example: “My biggest weakness is I work too hard.”
