Who said that funny, can’t also be informational?  Check out the hilarious interview video clip below and stop back after for my comments.

What have we learned?

  • DON’T get caught up in a magazine while waiting for them to start your interview
  • DO dress well.  The guy totally dresses the part in this interview
  • DON’T hit on anyone or ask for their phone number.  Even when you think you can guess the first 3 digits
  • DON’T tip anyone.  You know this, right?
  • DO smile when greeting your interviewer.  The man is certainly confident.
  • DON’T bring up awkward/weird animal facts.  What are you, a zoologist?
  • DON’T use company names from movies for your resume.  Although awesome, I don’t suggest it.
  • DO move the conversation to an area of expertise you are more comfortable with.  He totally moved it on to his “special skills”.
  • DON’T list your “Dong” size under special skills.  Thanks.

The dude in this interview was in a fairly entertaining Mayne Street short on ESPN... you ever see that? Don't have time to find the link now. I have always enjoyed the Good Will Hunting / Harold & Kumar movie tradition of "effing with the interview" by doing something dumb. I also feel strongly that dong size references should make more appearances in comedy.

Hey Royce, I haven't seen it, but I think I need to check that out! The Good Will Hunting scene is pretty awesome. I love it because of how persuasive he is in getting their money. It's perfect.

Rich, That made my morning. To be honest, I always have thought it would be fun and do something totally insane in an interview. Obviously I would never do that, but it could still make a great story. I had an Indian friend once who had some really ridiculous stories. The first time he went to the interview, he had to take a leak really bad and like a jackass decides not to wait till he gets in the building. The guy who caught him turned out to be the guy who was interviewing him. A second time, he couldn't make it a second round interview with another person, so he sent a friend in his place. Again, not recommended, but really funny things that this brought back memories of.

Yo Srini - I can not believe he sent someone in his place. That is like Good Will Hunting! haha, it is perfect and hilarious, but obviously not suggested. And, what a jack ass. Why would he pee outside?

This reminds me of a girl I interviewed in Michigan who told me her proudest accomplishment was being the only virgin in her sorority. It was awkward.

Hey Sarah - Your response should have been to switch to an awful interview question just to move away as quick as possible. Like, "umm, so where do you see yourself in 5 years..."

Haha, this is hilarious! Thanks for showing it - kind of makes me feel awkward for him.

When I saw this I knew I had to post it. I know right, I felt awkward for him, but that dude definitely didn't feel awkward. He was loving every minute of that interview...
