It’s the day of the big interview. You have an hour before you need to leave, so you:
A. Take a nap. You don’t need to set an alarm. You’ll wake up in time, but NOW YOU’RE AN HOUR LATE.
B. Trim your bangs just a little to make yourself look more professional. But then you end up with a bowl cut that makes you look like member of The Beatles. Hopefully they allow hats in the office or they really like George Harrison.
C. Eat a snack to sustain you, but you get a stain on your shirt and have to change and end up leaving the house five minutes later than planned and then you get slightly lost. You arrive two minutes late.
You walk into the room, see your potential boss and you:
A. Turn around, sprint all the way back to your car and apply for a job bagging groceries.
B. Talk like a robot and say, “I. am. from. the. future. You have already given me the job there. Hire. me.”
C. Make eye contact, firmly shake her hand and pleasantly introduce yourself. But laugh nervously a bit too much.
She smiles and offers you a seat. You sit down, and there’s a pause before she says anything, so you:
A. Start humming the Darth Vader theme song to fill the silence.
B. Quickly fix your hair. You’re pretty sure your new bowl cut makes your ears look big.
C. You keeping smiling and blink too much, but you maintain a semi-calm facade.
Now, she asks you about your strengths. You were expecting this, so you:
A. Can only remember your weaknesses, so you get up and sprint back to your car.
B. Decide to go for a Michael Scott quote and say, “Let me tell you about my weaknesses: I work too hard. I care too much. And sometimes I’m too invested in my job.” She looks skeptical. She must not be an Office fan.
C. You blank on what you had been planning to say but manage to say something semi-legible and intelligent.
The boss nods encouragingly. She thanks you for coming in and shakes your hand. You walk out of the room and you:
A. Can’t help yourself. You dance a little for not completely blowing it, because job interviews are difficult and a little terrifying.
