Question 30: Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 30 to 34.
Most job seekers are perceptive enough to know when an interview isn’t going well. So if you arrive late, can’t answer a question or totally botch a response, you’re not exactly surprised when you don’t receive an invite to move forward. But every once in a while, you’ll have an interview that you think went great only to get rejected by the recruiter.
You might wonder if the interviewers deemed you unqualified, or if the position went to an internal candidate instead. But one common disqualifier you may not have considered is that you came off as too negative in your interview
To be clear, you don’t have to be a negative person in general to come off the wrong way in a job interview. Even the most cheerful and optimistic among us fall victim to negativity from time to time, particularly in response to certain topics, such as why you want to leave your current position or company
Often, candidates feel the best answer to this question is to cite the shortcomings of their previous employer, which can quickly lead to a tangential description of the faults of managers or a list of a company’s shortcomings.

Make sure you also have a notepad and en so you can jot down notes and any questions you would like to ask at the end of the interview.
Be prepared to think on your feet. If you are asked to participate in a role-playing situation, give short but concise answers. Accept any criticism with tact and grace.
Avoid salary issues. If you are asked how much money you would expect, try to avoid the issue by using a delaying statement or give a very broad range. At this point, you do not know how much the job worth.
Push for a face-to-face meeting. Sell yourself by closing with something like: “I am very interested in exploring the possibility of working in your company I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you in person. I am free either Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning. Which would be better for you?”
Try to reschedule surprise interviews. If you were called unexpectedly, try to set an appointment to call so you can be better prepared by saying something like: “I have a scheduling conflict right now. Can I call you back tomorrow after work, at 6 P.M?”
