Ten Interview Questions That Scream ‘You Don’t Want This Job’

Source |  | Liz Ryan, CONTRIBUTOR

Fear is the most powerful force in the universe that no one talks about.

Fear has tremendous influence over our career decisions.

When you’re afraid of your boss (as many if not most working people are) you keep your mouth shut at work when you really want to speak.

When you’re running out of cash and you’re afraid of missing your rent payment next month, you’ll ignore signs on a job interview that tell you “Get out of here — you would hate this job if you got it!”

Our fear makes us miss signals Mother Nature is trying to send us.

We pretend that we won’t hate the job, even when the signs clearly point to a miserable experience for the poor person who gets hired.

Over time, we learn that when we can  muster the confidence to step through the fear, good things happen.

When you find the strength to say “No, thanks!” to the wrong opportunities, watch how the right ones come in!

The scarier it feels to say “Thanks anyway, but I’ll pass” to the wrong job opportunity, the greater the reward will be when you walk away from it.

Here are ten interview questions that tell you the job will not be a good fit for you.

It will be a painful experience to work for people who would such rude and insulting questions.

Don’t ignore those signals!

• How many unplanned absences did you take last year?

• What would your last three bosses say about you?

• What’s the minimum salary you would accept?
