There are many career advice blogs where you can get free tips to assist you in the job application process.  I just read a good WordPress blog coordinated by Catherine Adenle. This site has over 40,000 hits and has readers from across the globe. Readers from Canada, India, London and Texas have provided feedback about how the free advice given in the blog has assisted them in their job applications. I see other Australians (from Wagga Wagga and Sydney) were visiting the site at the same time as I was today.

The most active post in this Blog is titled ‘10 Things That You Should Never Ever Say During a Job Interview’.  

  1. “Your wife/husband/daughter/dog is smokin’ hot!”
  2. “Dude” or “bro.”
  3. “I was fired because management was intimidated by how good I am. They’re really stupid there.”
  4.  “Excuse me; I have to take this phone call.” 
  5. “I didn’t know you sold clothes.” 
  6. “Did you hear the one about the rabbi, the priest and the exotic dancer?”
  7. “Whatever. It’s not like you’re going to hire me.”
  8. “4.20 is a holiday here, right?”
  9. “I’m living with my mom right now because I’m going through a messy divorce.”
  10.  “Sorry I’m late. I just hate getting up before noon.”
