Some great tips on what not to do in an interview can be found at the Monday Morning Media Minute blog.

The list includes:

1. Being unprepared

2. Overselling the story

3. Saying too much

4. Saying too little

5. Speaking hypothetically

6. No line in the sand

7. Being combative

8. Being dishonest

The rest of the details are at the MMMM.
