I have a friend that says he always uses one word of profanity such as “damn” or “hell” during an interview to show maturity and that he is relaxed. Is this a good thing?

Absolutely not! Using any type of profanity does not show maturity, in fact it is the opposite. Being too relaxed is not where one should be during an interview. Of course we are not to be someone we are not, but using profanity of any type shows a lack of disrespect to a potential employer.

I would be curious as to what percentage of 2nd interviews your friend is receiving; something to ponder.
