Job Interview Stories
Job interview stories are sometimes priceless. We like them very often because
we can identify with them. Who hasn't had a job interview where something
didn't go as planned? Maybe we like those stories because we're secretly glad
it happened to someone else and not us. The more embarrassing to the job seeker
the funnier the story. Several situations come to mind. How about the job
seeker that steps into a pile of doggie do on their way and is so nervous
about the interview that they don't notice. The entire interview is spent
with the employer sniffing and making faces looking around to see where the
foul odor is coming from. Finally, the job seeker smells it too, and discovers
the mess on their shoe. To make matters worse they then realize that they've
been sitting on that shoe and now it's on their clothes and the employer's
chair. It's a safe bet that job is given to someone else.
There are all kinds of embarrassing things that can happen in a job interview
story. Noticing that your shoes don't match and trying to hide them. Having
your baby spit up on your shoulder and being the last to notice, or how about
the job interview story where you go through the entire interview with a big
piece of spinach between your teeth.
Job interview stories can only go downhill from there. For
instance, have you ever interviewed for an office job and not realized you
were talking to the head of the maintenance department? Or to make matters
worse, have you ever been on the wrong floor or the wrong building entirely?
You could be running back and forth like an idiot so you won't be late, while
the office you're supposed to be at is right in front of you.
