4 questions candidates ask that make recruiters cringe

Learning how to interview well requires practice. And whilst most recruiters would forgive their unexperienced candidates for making a few schoolboy errors, those who know what they want from a job should know the routine by now.

    If we carry the "interviewing" is like "dating" analogy further, does your expert approve of trying to get a grope at the end? Or perhaps arranging for a mariachi band to play throughout the interview?
    Perhaps some better advice would be to absolutely not treat an interview like a date......because its nothing like going on a date.

    If a candidate has taken the time to attend an interview I see no reason why the question what would be the next steps, it could be a presentation maybe required or only holding second interviews on a one date which they may have to book time off work.
