Q: Dad, what are some things that trip people up during job interviews?
A: Going in with a complete lack of knowledge about the company or smart questions of your own for the interviewer or a viable list of goals is bad. Not knowing how to use a knife and fork, should the interview include a dining experience, is also a negative, but checking your phone during the interview is very bad.
