instead of the appalling silence-laden answers that you did give. Argh hate this.
not a good interview I take it?
Would've been perfect as well.
if they're awkward, so am i.
I had an interview for a job elsewhere in the same company when I thought I was about to be made redundant. Ended up fluffing it by going silent when asked 'what's your greatest non-academic achievement?'. Couldn't think of I thing (i've decided it's passing my driving test on the 5th attempt).
To make things worse I managed to get a new role in the same company and bumped into the interviewer the other day in the office. Turns out what i'm working on is basically for him. Shit.
I didn't get the job.
Firstly, the room was so hot I almost collapsed. Thats another story though.
They asked my three best and worst qualities.
I struggled on the three best and even more so on the three worst.
I ended up saying "I'm not good at making coffee". It didnt go down too well. They just ignored it.
