5 things you should never reveal in a job interview

If you want to nab a new job, this tips will definitely come in handy.

Job interviews can be nightmarish, and often feel like obstacle courses you're going through blindfolded.

Luckily, a helpful new YouTube video is jam-packed with tips for job interview success - and a big part of this could be making sure you don't reveal too many of your weaknesses.

So, knowing from an employer's perspective what they don't want to hear from candidates can be really valuable.

That's why 'successful entrepreneur and manager' Daniel Tenner has made a YouTube video centered around the things you really shouldn't reveal in a job interview unless you're absolutely forced to. He starts by explaining that these details don't necessarily make you a bad candidate, but they might make you easy to cull from the list if it's a competitive field.

His first rule is that you shouldn't reveal anything that isn't relevant to the job ad you're actually going for. This might sound counterintuitive, but Tenner explains that any of these tiny details could be used as a reason why you might not fit the role. So, keeping to the most necessary details can streamline you in the eyes of an interviewer.

Next, Tenner says, make sure not to share any confidential information from past employers - even if it sounds like it could give you a leg up by demonstrating expertise.

After all, as he puts it, "what you're telling them is that you probably also won't keep their information confidential when you leave them". In fact, you could even be tricked into revealing info as competitor research.

His third tip is to never voice negative impressions of past employers - even if they're completely justified. In the eyes of interviewers, you could sound bitter, rather than mistreated. "Try finding some positives to talk about," Tenner says.

Fourth in the list anything that makes you sound too ambitious in the short-term - if you're asked where you want to be in five years, answering 'CEO' could be a bad idea. Recruiters want someone passionate about the role in question, not where it could take them next.

Finally, the fifth tip is a pretty simple one - it's all about the power of silence. Tenner says that finishing when you've answered a question rather than rambling on can be a really brilliant way to seem confident and in control.

That can be the hardest thing to stick to when you're nervous, of course, but it's definitely true that waffling on can be rather off-putting.
