What Not to Do at a Job Interview...

Interviewing can be fun, right? Well, reading about bad interviews can be...

Can you believe they actually did this?

....stretched out on the floor to fill out the job application.

....wore an i-Pod and told the HR person she couldn't listen to her and the music at the same time.

....a balding candidate abruptly excused himself, and returned to the office a few minutes later wearing a hairpiece.

....asked to see the interviewer's resume to see if the personnel executive was qualified to judge the candidate.

....announced she hadn't had lunch and proceeded to eat a hamburger and french fries in the interviewer's office -- wiping the ketchup on her sleeve.

....stated that if he were hired, he would demonstrate his loyalty by having the corporate logo tattooed on his forearm.

....interrupted to phone his therapist for advice on answering specific interview questions.

....when I asked him about his hobbies, he stood up and started tap dancing around my office.

....at the end of the interview, while I stood there dumbstruck, he went through my purse, took out a brush, brushed his hair and left.

Good Luck on that Job Search!!
