If You Come in Looking Like That...

You probably won't get the job!

My assistant does most of the interviewing for open positions. If she likes the person, I'll do a second interview...sometimes.

The other day she had called in a young man to interview him. He came dressed in oversized pants, that didn't even look clean. Shirt hanging out all over. Looked like a thug.

It was obvious that this person was not serious about getting a job, or if he was, he was going about it all wrong.

She wanted to get out of wasting her time on this and asked me how. I said ask a few simple questions and be done with it. I told her I bet she could be rid of him in two minutes, so I timed it!

46 seconds later the interview was done!

She said that he had a booger on his face!

Moral of the story? If you have a job interview that lasts less than a minute, you probably didn't get the job.

...and wipe any remnant boogers off of your face!
