During my research, I happened to see this book 'Turn Redundancy into Opportunity' in my library. It felt as if that book was written for me (and the millions of others in the same shoes!) and I picked it up. To be honest, I learnt nothing new and dismissed it in 10 minutes. But it did give me a good laugh though.
Recruitment company, Robert Half, asked 300 major UK employers for examples of their more unusual job candidates at interview.
Candidate fell asleep during interview.Poor guy might have been up all night preparing for the interview! Give him a break.
Candidate tried to take his clothes offDesperate measures!
Candidate confessed to being a convicted murderer.At least he was honest!
Candidate challenged interviewer to an arm-wreslting contest.Come on, that would have been fun.
Bald candidate asked to leave the room mid-interview and returned a few minutes later wearing a wig.If you have hair on your head, you have no right to judge! Hmph!
Candidate phones her therapist during the interview and ask the correct response to a question.Might have confused the interview with Who wants to me a Millionaire/Crorepati. There were some interviewes where I wanted to call a lawyer before answering the question.
Candidate demanded to see the interviewer's CV to check they were properly qualified.Tit-for-tat! Btw why not? He has every right to find out that you are not a harum-scarum.
Another link along the same lines. Hilarious!
Pssst: Come next week and I won't be unemployed. Hurray! My loooooong vacation is coming to an end. And the best part is that I can walk/cycle to work soon. After almost two years of long commutes to London, this feels like a priceless benefit! I can't thank you all enough for your good wishes - I am sure it helped! I believe big in positive energy.
