I Mean Really Flushing the Interview Down the Toilet

Career Quote of the Day

A while we posted a funny job interview story shared with us by one of our recruitment and staffing partners, called Flushing the Interview Down the Toilet (which has been very very popular).

Below is a link to a great article on the top ten wackiest job interview stories. This article cites, a survey conducted by Careerbuilder that gathered information from over 3 HR professionals about common job interview mistakes. Along with practical tips on how to improve your job interview skills, it also contains some very funny job interview stories. While there are some good ones here, the one that stands out for me is this one:

Candidate flushed the toilet while talking to interviewer during phone interview.

A close second is this one:

Candidate told the interviewer he was fired for beating up his last boss.

This one is truly unbelievable, since in some corporations this kind of blatantly unacceptable behavior might just get you promoted :). Anyway, here is the rest of the wacky job interview article.

Remember that another good source of job interview questions is your resume. Hiring managers will ask you questions based on your resume.. For some people it’s hard to recall what you did last week, let alone what you did at work a few years ago. So it pays to review your resume before you go to your job interview.
