I have never heard that before. I would certainly express in an interview how much I wanted the job, but I’ve never said “So can I have this job?” (But I work in the public sector in the UK – so I know they would never be able to say – “yep, here you go” because there’s a process that I’ve been on the other end of, too). I also try to use language that places me in that job to help the interviewers see me in that role.
I am 1 day in to my active search for roles in the US (I’m an American citizen) – so I’ll bear this in mind. Been a long time since I’ve worked or applied for a job in America.
