Greensboro, NC -- Salary, hours, vacation and benefits might be the most important things about a job to you, but ask about them first thing in an interview, and you might lose your shot at them.

Career Consultant Joyce Richman says asking about those things in an initial interview can ruin your chances of landing the job.

In an interview Richman says you should focus on what can you do for the company, match what you do best to what the company needs most.  After you sell yourself, let the employer come sell you on the benefits of working there.

You can read Richman's advice every Sunday in the Triad Careers section of the News and Record.
