    Job Interviews

    It feels like begging. I hate it and I hate the smug *** interviewers. I don't think they are good indicators of good workers. A lot of times lazy *** losers are good at interviews because they just lie with a smile on their face. Sometimes I think employers should go with...

    I Thought I Was Ready For This

    So I left my house this morning to go to a recruitment event to interview for a company I'd like to work for. I prepared and prepared for this day. I wasn't nervous at all when I arrived and met my interviewer. Then he asked me the first question "Why do you want this position...

    Rigged Game

    I've always considered job interviews to be a game in which the rules are ambiguous and change on a whim to suit the interviewer. The object of this game seems to be able to outwit your adversary, "the interviewer." He presents you a list of questions that test not necessarily...

    Hire Me Already

    I have a job interview today. I am nervous. I hate interviews. Employers should just look at your cv or application and from there decide if you are right for the job let you do the job and see how well you do. You get asked the most stupid questions. Where do you see yourself in...

    Preparing Doesn'T Work

    No matter how much I prepare for them and run through the questions I know they'll ask, I still freeze up and trip up in my answers. I always feel like I just got lucky when I actually get the job after what I was sure was a terrible interview. I replay it all in my mind and end...

    I Hate Interviews

    I hate job interviews.  I hate the fact that it seems so random, whether or not you will get the job.  And that you get interviewed for things involving skills that have nothing to do with interview skills.  That people who are good at interviews get jobs easily...

    Doesn't Honesty And Integrity Mean Anything Anymore?

    I agree 100% with all the post as to why people hate job interviews from the stupid questions you're asked that have absolutely nothing to do with the job at hand, to interviews being totally dishonest and deceitfull. What a crock the job system is these days. Not to sound...

    Why I Don't Respect Employers (Much Of The Time).

    Im a young guy who takes the more inexperienced, entry-level jobs. With the way our country is headed the good, decent jobs seem to be vanishing anyway or is it just me? In any instance I do not even get nervous about job interviews and here is why: First off, they all ask the...

    An Hour In Hell

    I arrived half an hour early because I thought parking was going to be more difficult.  That meant I had to walk reeeeeaaally slowly from my car to the building door.  The guard was nice.  Very flirty.  And told me where the ladies room was without my even asking! (good grief...
