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!:
“So tell me more about your program“
“Have a nice gay!“
“I may be bad, but I’m perfectly good at it“
“I’m very growth orientated“
“I say ‘Camel’, you say… “
“Going, going, gone!“
“Bitches be tripping“
“OH GOD! THIS IS THE END!“
“I’m Frankie Boyle’s biggest f***ing fan!“
“Why should we hire you?“
“Let me tell you about my Koalafications“
“I’ve been single for a while“
“What’s your tattoo policy?“
“Don’t worry, I’ll reach!“
Have you any horrendously awkward interview experiences you’d like to share with us? Then feel free to come clean in the comments below!
Happy Friday Recruiters!
