RE: Why I Hate Job Interviews

in #life4 years ago

Lol very true.

One of the things I have noticed myself is that the first few seconds are crucial - if you handle that well then you can generally ace it.

One of the things that has tripped me up before (although not enough to lose the job but enough to be embarrassing) is the question:

"Is there anything you would like to ask us?"

Simply answering "no" can create an awkward silence.


hahaha yeah if your'e not expecting it you're sort of forced to either just say no or ask some meaningless bullshit lol

Just literally ask them anything about the company. Or ask them to repeat a crucial bit of info that you feel is important to knowing how to work there (showing interest and thinking you will be hired). This has never failed me so far. I always have it in my mind that saying "no" for that question is the worst thing you can do.

Interesting tip

Yes I have heard that too. An alternative is to say something along the lines of "I think we have covered everything for now."

Just ask them a random riddle and time it.

Saying no says you didn't do your homework. You should ask them about those rewards and marketing bs you saw on their website.

Or maybe it is just being honest. Why should you make something up?
