What NOT to Say When Interviewing for Your Dream Job

"What do you all do here?"
Asking this question in a job interview is such a NO NO. When you go into to interview for your dream job, those hiring managers expect you to have researched their company and already know what they do going in. Asking something like this show that you are unprepared.

"What is the salary for this position?"
Never ask this question in the first interview. You can come off like you are only in it for the money and don't really care about what the position is actually responsible for. Save that question for after you've been offered the position.

"My experience for that particular position is on my resume."
If the hiring manager asks you to tell them a little bit about what you did for the last company you worked for, never respond with, that information is on my resume. First of all, that can come off kind of rude. Second of all, they understand that it is on your resume, they to see your communication skills and how you interact face to face. Because if you can't communicate well face to face, how will you communicate with their clients if you are hired?

"Um and like"
These filler words, um and like, are so easy to say, especially when you get nervous. Do your best not to day them because you can come off like your not confident and somewhat juvenile.

"How much vacation is allotted with this position?"
Again, asking about vacation time in the first interview is kind of like asking about the salary, it is too early for questions like that. Wait until after you have been offered the job to discuss things of this nature.
