Job interviews can be nerve-racking at the best of times, but when an applicant says something inappropriate - accidentally or not - a tense situation can go from bad to over in a matter of seconds.
Shortly after users had fun with the hashtag #FiveWordsToRuinADate, people on Twitter turned their talents to job advice, and what should definitely not be uttered when in any kind of a meeting with a potential employer.
“I’ll be asking the questions!”, “Can I get an advance?” and “I’m live tweeting this interview” are just some of the phrases that should never be said during a job interview. But one of the best and possibly most obvious is: "You have an awesome hairpiece".
