Job interviews are such a fucking joke. They don't actually measure how much somebody is qualified for X position, they only measure who is the best liar/who is the best at doing a good impression. Today this woman asked me, "are you proactive?". I mean, goddamn, c'mon. Who would say "no"? I was dying to say, "no, I am not proactive, I am actually lazy as fuck and I hate to do things" just to see her reaction. When they ask, "what is your worst flaw?", it is easy to imagine that most people say "I am, uuh... very perfectionistic" (which isn't exactly a flaw), and if they ask "what would you say that are your most evident qualities", most people will say they are leaders. Everybody is a fucking pioneer, a leader, a boss.
Being too much of a perfectionist is
a flaw. It could require you to take ages to complete a project, because in your super perfect mind it still isn't just right
, as well as whatever mental down you might end up in, if you 'have to' hand over the finished project, despite it not being your standard of perfect.
But overall, I absolutely fucking agree.
Though I admit to being a bit more honest... than I should be? If asked if I am a leader, I openly admit that I'd prefer to not be, but if it must be done (real meaning: if everybody else is being too fucking incompetent to breathe on their own) I will step up to it. Or that I can
work in a group, but prefer to work alone.
I'd love to go to an interview and be honest.What's your worst flaw?
"Well, I do have a horrible problem with being emotionally instable. Not that I'd be dangerous to people, but I might come in super motivated for something and - two hours later - I couldn't care less about the same thing.Why do you want to work for us?
"Because I need a job and I want to have money."How are you in a group?
"I will keep my mouth shut or use it when necessary, but overall, I want you
to shut up and let me do my job."Why have you worked at so many different places?
"Because everyone is an ass who would prefer to keep me there for one or two days of 'training' that I am not getting paid for and then refuse to hire me; they don't want an employee, they want a slave."How come you have so little experience in this field?
"Because nobody will hire me, so how am I even supposed to get
that experience to begin with?"
Though that last one I have said, politer, in an interview.
You ask a dumb, Kafkaesque question, I will give you a true answer back.
