Epic Fail

Excerpts from the worst interviews I have ever given. Be prepared. Also, I suck.


Can I have my resume back after this?

1. At a newspaper
Post vying for: Reporter

Interviewer (I): {laughing} Why have you written you are a non-smoker and teetolaer in your resume?
Me (M): {thinking up something funny} Uhh...cause I won't waste my time smoking and drinking and be more productive?
I: {laughing hysterically} This is hilarious. I think I'm gonna use this in my story on bad resumes.

2. At a radio station
Post vying for: RJ

I: So go on. Speak for two minutes on Mumbai.
M: {incoherent, awful two minutes later} So I'm done?
I: Yup. Thanks.
M: I was bad, wasn't I?
I: Yes.

3. At another newspaer
Post vying for: Reporter

I: Your resume looks good. I don't have anything to ask you.
M: Uhh..ok?
I: Anything you'd like to ask me?
M: Uhh yeah. What is my salary going to be like?

4. At an entertainment channel
Post vying for: Production

I: So, why do you want to do this?
M: You know, I don't really know. I'm trying to find my calling.
I: {laughing} What if this job isn't your calling?
M: Umm.. {nervous laughter. Awkward silence}

5. At another newspaper
Post vying for: Reporter

I: So tell me about yourself.
M: I'm a very average person. Never was good in studies.
I: Um. Ok.

6. At a web content place
Post vying for: Content developer

I: Your resume is very interesting. Looks like you have had some experience with camera work.
M: {rambles for 15 minutes on the nuances of camera work}
I: {yawning} You really want to do this job?

Last but not the least. Be ready for this one.



7. At a news channel
Post vying for: Reporter

I: So, do you watch the news?
M: Nope.

Epic, epic fail.

Is there anyone else with similar experiences?
