Daily Job Seeker Tip: Bashing the BossJanuary 5th, 2011 | Interviewing | No Comments »
Okay, so you didn’t get along with your previous boss. That’s fine…as long as you don’t bash your boss during an interview! Avoid any negative comments in answers to questions about your reasons for leaving, challenges you experienced, or how you interact with coworkers.
If you do let it slip that you think your last boss is a jerk, you’re basically saying that you don’t have a problem talking trash about your company and coworkers. And employers aren’t typically going to hire people who could bash them. So stay positive, and let past grievances go.
