In a lot of situations when I need to give a response to an expression of gratitude, I use the phrase "no problem" instead of "you are welcome". I recently noticed that it might not be appropriate when it was in a more formal situation or when talking to someone older than me.

Another thing, in one of my recent interviews, I said "I look forward to seeing you again." to my interviewer. I didn't realize it was not a good ending sentence I should say until about a week later when I read an article introducing interview skills. I thought it was the right thing to say when expressing my willingness for the job. But now I think the people who hear this sentence might not feel the same way.
