How NOT to interview for a job

C'mon, mamas...share your experiences and help some novices out...

I'm going to say: 

LEAVE YOUR DARN CELL PHONE IN THE CAR!  Don't leave it in your purse to vibrate, don't check it when it beeps and the potential boss is in the middle of asking you a question.

I've got LOTS more, but I want y'all to share...

Dress to impress!

Check your attitude at the door AS you leave your home.

Don't go to an interview with the attitude that someone OWES you a job, regardless of what degrees you may have.

 Yeah, that's something a potential employer can pick up on pretty quickly.


Quoting LyTe684:

The cell phone thing is common sense. If you're dumb enough to do that, you shouldn't get the job anyway.

Don't smoke within a half-hour of when your interview starts--even if you're very nervous.

Don't ask about money before you even sit down.
