Do Not Say: "I'll bet you're a good dancer."

While your applicant may very well be a great dancer, if she doesn't offer that information herself, you've just committed an egregious HR error – stereotyping a candidate based on physical or implied characteristics. Ask questions based on explicit feedback from the candidate. Don't stretch or try to be witty – this is the candidate's interview, remember? You've already got the job.
