These 4 Phrases Will Tank Your Job Interview

TRANSKRIP
Even if you think you’re great in job interviews,
here are four commonly used phrases that seem fine on the surface, but actually send up red flags and hurt your chances.
You’ll wanna avoid them.
Number one, I’m a hard worker who gets things done.
Yes, I’m sure you are.
But if you drop this line,
the interviewer might see you as a lone wolf who focuses more on work than on people.
The more valuable trait to sell is your ability to work with others toward shared goals.
When talking about yourself,
focus on the hard work you accomplished within a larger team.
Number two, my talents were not being put to good use.
If you say this while talking about your last job,
you’re actually dissing your last employer.
Hiring managers will be able to sense your resentment, no matter how small it might be
and then they may assume that you’re the kind of person that’s quick to resentment or holds grudges,
so avoid that phrase,
because conveying any kind of negativity will not serve you well.
Which leads to, number three,
I didn’t feel challenged by my last job.
I know this might seem like a decent, nice way to explain why you’re leaving
or have already left your current position,
but here’s the thing, if you weren’t challenged, that’s your fault.
Employers expect candidates to take initiative and create opportunities for themselves.
So saying you didn’t feel challenged essentially translates to I was just lazy.
And number four, I’d like your job one day.
I get it, you wanna show the hiring manager
that you’re ambitious, that you have goals, that you’re ready to learn specifically from them.
But this comment implies that you think you’re capable of doing what they do, without even really knowing what it is they do.
Imagine if you said this during a job interview and they simply responded, so what do I do?
You would be left dumbfounded.
So avoid these phrases at all cost,
focus only on the best parts of your previous jobs,
and you’ll already be a step above the rest.

TERJEMAHAN
Even if you think you’re great in job interviews,
Bahkan jika kamu berpikir kamu hebat dalam wawancara kerja,

here are four commonly used phrases that seem fine on the surface, but actually send up red flags and hurt your chances.
ini adalah empat frasa yang sering digunakan yang terlihat biasa saja, tapi sebenarnya berbahaya dan mengecilkan peluangmu.

You’ll wanna avoid them.
Kamu ingin menghindarinya.

Number one, I’m a hard worker who gets things done.
Nomor satu, saya adalah pekerja keras yang menyelesaikan tugas yang diberikan.

Yes, I’m sure you are.
Ya, saya yakin kamu begitu.

But if you drop this line,
Tapi jika kamu mengatakan ini,

the interviewer might see you as a lone wolf who focuses more on work than on people.
pewawancara mungkin melihatmu sebagai penyendiri yang lebih berfokus pada tugas daripada orang-orang.

The more valuable trait to sell is your ability to work with others toward shared goals.
Sifat yang lebih berharga untuk dijual adalah kemampuanmu bekerja dengan orang lain menuju tujuan yang sama.

When talking about yourself,
Ketika berbicara mengenai dirimu,

focus on the hard work you accomplished within a larger team.
fokuslah pada kerja keras yang kamu capai dalam sebuah tim yang besar.

Number two, my talents were not being put to good use.
Nomor dua, bakat saya tidak tergunakan dengan baik.

If you say this while talking about your last job,
Kalau kamu mengatakan ini ketika membicarakan pekerjaan terakhirmu,

you’re actually dissing your last employer.
kamu sebenarnya menghina majikan lamamu.

Hiring managers will be able to sense your resentment, no matter how small it might be
Manajer perekrutan akan bisa merasakan kemarahanmu, tidak peduli betapa kecilnya itu

and then they may assume that you’re the kind of person that’s quick to resentment or holds grudges,
dan lalu mereka mungkin akan berasumsi bahwa kamu tipe orang yang cepat marah atau menyimpan dendam,

so avoid that phrase,
jadi hindarilah frase itu,

because conveying any kind of negativity will not serve you well.
karena menyampaikan hal apapun yang negatif tidak akan membantumu.

Which leads to, number three,
Yang menuntun ke nomor tiga,

I didn’t feel challenged by my last job.
saya merasa tidak tertantang di pekerjaan terakhir saya.

I know this might seem like a decent, nice way to explain why you’re leaving or have already left your current position,
Saya tahu ini mungkin cara yang baik dan layak untuk menjelaskan mengapa kamu meninggalkan atau sudah meninggalkan posisi terkinimu,

but here’s the thing, if you weren’t challenged, that’s your fault.
tapi masalahnya, kalau kamu tidak tertantang, itu adalah kesalahanmu.

Employers expect candidates to take initiative and create opportunities for themselves.
Majikan mengharapkan kandidat untuk memiliki inisiatif dan menciptakan peluan bagi diri mereka.

So saying you didn’t feel challenged essentially translates to I was just lazy.
Jadi berkata bahwa kamu tidak merasa tertantang pada dasarnya diartikan sebagai saya pemalas.

And number four, I’d like your job one day.
Dan nomor empat, saya menginginkan jabatan anda suatu saat nanti.

I get it, you wanna show the hiring manager
Saya paham, kamu ingin menunjukkan ke manajer perekrutan

that you’re ambitious, that you have goals, that you’re ready to learn specifically from them.
bahwa kamu ambisius, bahwa kamu punya cita-cita, bahwa kamu siap untuk belajar secara khusus dari mereka.

But this comment implies that you think you’re capable of doing what they do, without even really knowing what it is they do.
Tapi komentar ini menyiratkan bahwa kamu berpikir kamu mampu melakukan apa yang mereka lakukan, bahkan tanpa benar-benar mengetahui apa yang sebenarnya mereka lakukan.

Imagine if you said this during a job interview and they simply responded, so what do I do?
Bayangkan jika kamu mengatakan itu dalam sebuah wawancara dan mereka dengan mudah merespon, jadi apa yang saya lakukan?

You would be left dumbfounded.
Kamu akan tercengang.

So avoid these phrases at all cost,
Jadi hindari frasa-frasa ini sebisa mungkin,

focus only on the best parts of your previous jobs,
fokuslah hanya pada bagian terbaik dari pekerjaanmu sebelumnya,

and you’ll already be a step above the rest.
dan kamu akan sudah selangkah lebih maju dari yang lain.
