a job interview. I turn into a pathetic quivering mong with nothing to say, everytime.
Weirdly, in interviews I turn into Man With Biggest Balls in the World - effortlessly reeling off a list of achievements, skills and attributes that I may or may not have, in a seamless, mumble-free spiel of self-promoting invective.
If I applied any of my interview technique to the practise of picking up girls I'd be unstoppable...
don't really know why because this is exactly the kind of situation where I'd usually fall apart.
so good in fact, that i got sacked from my last job for being deceptively good in my interview. :'''''(
"I thought you said you had a law degree from the Sorbonne."
"Yeah, there should have been a 'don't' somewhere in there..."
...like meeting your g/fs parents for the first time. If you're naturally good at that, interviews are a breeze.
Just smile, laugh when they make a joke, crack a couple of little inoffensive jokes when you can, and you'll have them eating out of your hand before you've had to list one accomplishment.
Saying that, having a job is much much better than the process of applying for jobs!
