What’s the Craziest Thing You’ve Ever Done/Seen in an Interview?
I read a story this morning about a gentleman who forgot black socks to go with his suit for an important job interview. Now, for me personally, black socks isn’t what would make or break a job offer… but it was obviously a deal breaker for this particular applicant.
What do you think he did?
a) Ignored it and hoped the interviewer wouldn’t notice
b) Explained to the interviewer about his mistake
c) Rushed to the shop to buy a pair of black socks
Well, the answer is neither – what he actually did was colour his ankles black using permanent marker.
We absolutely love funny interview stories like this, and so, if you have any to share – either as an applicant or an employer – then we’d love to hear them.
