i am starting to do some interviewing at work and it makes me appreciate all the people who have interviewed me in the past. let's face it, the whole interview process stinks but it's always good when people actually ask good questions. while we were going over who we needed to interview my boss said "you are totally into this, huh?" i laughed and told him i was. i guess i am a nerd like that, but it's fun the first time around.
i think my best interview was when the interviewer looked up everything i had listed on my resume (blog, online store etc.). they knew exactly where i was coming from. it made me feel appreciated and i could talk more fluently about my strengths/weaknesses. the worst question i've been asked was "what is the worst thing that has happened in your life and what did you do about it." this was for a financial position (which i thankfully did not get) and i had no idea how to relate my worst life experience to financial sales. to make matters worse, i have been blessed in my life time and haven't had anything too terrible happen so i had no clue what to say.
what is your best or worst interview experience? have you ever bombed one?
(i have! on that same financial interview i made myself seem like an OCD nut case. i kept talking about how organized i was and started making things because i was getting nervous. thankfully i can leave dave to all the financial busines and can do creative things)
