Worth job interviews of 2008

Postby simonwallace » Sun Dec 28, 2008 2:02 pm

I read this in the Independent on Sunday and thought I would share it, as it is a fantastic example of a poor job interview technique.

"...the man who, receiving a mobile phone call, asked the interviewer to leave because it was a "private call"; the man who told the interviewer he had been sacked from his last post for beating up the boss; the candidate who sniffed his armpits as he walked into the interview room; and the person going for an accountancy job who told the interviewer: "I'm a people person, not a numbers person." But the winner is the American who, during a telephone job interview, flushed the toilet."

I would suggest not doing any of these in 2009...but if you do, or if you have messed up then please let us know...we promise not to laugh...much ;)
