Interview Drama

, , , | Working | August 14, 2017

(I’m interviewing candidates for a role, I have already seen their CVs and have picked out the best of the bunch. All they have to do it impress with their personality and answer some simple questions.)

Me: “So why did you apply for this role?”

Candidate: “Well, I have always wanted to work in engineering.”

Me: “Really? Okay, that’s interesting. Well, this is a new field for you; what makes you think you have the ability to perform in this role?”

Candidate: “Well, my degree will really help me.”

Me: “Your degree in…” *I check papers* “…drama? How… would… that help you?”

Candidate: “I… err. Well…”

(It turned out that they couldn’t answer simple questions about their own CV, and more likely than not made a lot of it up. We went with someone else.)
