What not to do on an Intervew

After 25 years of recruiting it never ceases to amaze me that the candidate who says they will ace the interview usually ends up being the joker.  Many articles have been written about how to ace the interview but here are a few tips on what not to do:

1.  Wear unkempt clothing
2.  Do not clean or shine your shoes
3.  Use a heavy perfume or after shave
4.  Do not bring copies of your resume to the interview
5.  Do not bring a pen or pencil to the interview
6.  Do not research the company your are interviewing with
7.  Do not roll play possible questions you may be asked
8.  Do not be a good listener
9.  Do not know your accomplishments and how they would help the
10.By all means ask about salary and benefits on the first interview
