What's The Most Awkward Thing You've Ever Done in a Job Interview?

awkward job interview

 

Let’s face it, we can do everything in our power to provide the best candidate experience possible for our interviewees, but the job interview process is, and will forever be, one of the most awkward things a person will ever have to do. It’s just a fact of life. 2 complete strangers sitting in a room together, one asking the questions, the other sweating profusely trying to answer them coherently and intelligently. The whole thing is just…. well,  awkward! Awkward, but necessary.

But when Buzzfeed asked their loyal legion of readers “What is the most awkward thing you’ve done in a job interview?“, I don’t think anyone was prepared for the plethora of hilarious and downright crazy answers people decided to share openly with the world! So sit back, enjoy, and revel in the fact that whatever happens, you will never have an interview experience quite this awkward!:
