Job interviews can be one of the most stressful activities one takes on in life. Anxiety wise, the job search ranks up there with moving and death. In fact, interviewing for a job can be like a slow death, especially depending on the people you have to try and impress.
It's unfortunate the process of interviewing or "auditioning" for a place at the table isn't a primary lesson in school. A lot of people could benefit once they're thrust into the real world. Some of the things people say and do leaves one speechless and in need of a happy hour.
Case in point... people of Twitter threw out some examples of what has been said while in an interview for employment. The reactions.... well... you'll see, just listen.
Matchmaker, matchmaker make me a match! But after 5....
Never not give face to face.

"What's your Qualification?"
Me :I have a Masters degree in avoiding eye contact.
Take a tic-tac, don't let them smell the vodka.
Make sure they have you #! It can be all you've got.
It's dull but a pertinent question. So many can't answer... it's THAT deep.
Make a personal PRO's list. You're worth it.
me in a job interview: my greatest strength? I’d have to say that’s the fact I would not plunge this company into a ‘mad max’ style dystopia— Rachel (@underthenettle) February 20, 2018
It can't hurt to name drop any sexy celebrity you have in your corner.
Confidence is key. Overconfidence is NOT sexy.
Be honest... but use your truth sparingly. Nobody needs all your drama right away.
It's all too much, just pick an answer from the pile, anything will work. It's all annoying and unoriginal in the end.
