In a social media sea swimming with hashtags, it’s rare when one makes a viral wave worth watching.
And in my opinion, the #FiveWordsToRuinAJobInterview hashtag is on of the best in ages!
Search this hashtag on twitter and you’re sure to find a host of hilarious one-liners (in five words, of course). But what’s most interesting to me is that most of the tweets have some kind of insight with them.
For example, @edit_susan submitted “Need To Take This Call”– something many people have no doubt done before in a job interview. They may think it shows they are busy and significant, but it really just says they’re rude.
Or @MelindaDC’s submission of “You Mean ‘fewer’, not ‘less’.” NEVER correct someone who is interviewing you! You may think it makes you look smart, but it really just makes you look like a know-it-all whom no one will ever want to work with.
