Funny article...hope you enjoy reading!

 

I have to admit the silent ones are difficult to interview, because you know they have talents; however, it can be difficult pulling the information out of them.

 

The extreme excuse makers who blame everything on their previous boss or employer is something that I talk about often in this blog. 

 

Take a read on the listed 8, and tell us what you think?

 

Until next time.....PS - Live on Purpose!

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, April 12, 2014 9:49 AM

Job Interview Advice can be pretty serious.  I thought that I would start bringing in a little comic relief to this blog. 

 

If you have any funny stories, please share with us to post.  Would love to hear from you! 

-----

 

Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Officer asked a young Engineer fresh out of MIT, "And what starting salary were you looking for?"

 

The Engineer replies, "In the region of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."

 

The interviewer enquires, "Well, what would you say to a package of 5-weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years say, a red Corvette?"

 

The Engineer sits up straight and says, "Wow! Are you kidding?"

And the interviewer replies, "Yeah, but you started it."
