What Not to Do

3:10 PM -- YubaNet.com carries CareerBuilder's list of "Top Ten Wackiest Mistakes Candidates Made in Job Interviews." The best involve just too much frankness:

    -- Candidate told the interviewer he wouldn't be able to stay with the job long because he thought he might get an inheritance if his uncle died -- and his uncle wasn't "looking too good."

    -- Candidate told the interviewer he was fired for beating up his last boss.

    -- When applicant was offered food before the interview, he declined saying he didn't want to line his stomach with grease before going out drinking.
Good, forward-thinking, common sense, that last one. I'd hire him.
