interviewing

questions from a recent interview:

Q: food eating contest, what would you eat?
A: there’s a vietnamese dish that my gma used to make for me, they’re like little pancakes. she would make me stop eating after i finished a bag of flour. i would kick your ass in this eating contest.

Q: let’s say there was an error and you doubled booked two clients to do a presentation and they show up, both needing A/V equipment that you don’t have and only one can present, what do you do?
A: i would make them fight to the death to see who can stay & present, and for audio & visual, i would do a song/dance routine to go with their presentation. just kidding. these people are obviously human too, and i’m sure they’re professional and aware enough to know that errors happen. i would diffuse the situation, be the professional face for ABC Company and offer up one to stay and the other to be rescheduled for another date……… blah blah blah.

Q: {none. we were at lunch and talking about the tv show Walking Dead}
A: …i mean really, it’s the end of the world and you let your child wander around in the woods by himself, eat a fat … (i almost said DI CK but i caught myself and said) ONE!

Q: why shouldn’t we hire you?
A: because honestly, as you can see on my resume, i’m a job hopper. if i’m unhappy in a situation, i have no issue getting up and leaving to find a place i can be happy at. having said, please make sure that this situation you’re interviewing me for is a happy one.
