When your in­ter­viewer is a bit off the wall

Weird and not so won­der­ful, but also funny.

“Dur­ing an in­ter­view for a job that was ef­fec­tively the of­fice skivvy, I was asked to write the let­ter Y. Ap­par­ently, handwriting that fea­tures ex­ces­sive ‘loop­ing’ in­di­cates de­vi­ous­ness. I didn’t get the job, but I’m pretty sure my Ys are trust­wor­thy.” – Lucy, 29

“I was asked, in to­tal se­ri­ous­ness, ‘What’s your star sign?’ They didn’t want to up­set of­fice equi­lib­rium. I didn’t get the job, as Leos are ap­par­ently too fiery.” – Bex, 31

“I ap­plied for a role at a sci-fi pub­lisher. Their first question was, ‘How do you turn a Ferengi [an alien from Star Trek] on?’ I an­swered cor­rectly (‘tickle his ears’), but failed the other 20 ques­tions. I felt like I’d failed a pub quiz more than an in­ter­view.” – Nikki, 35
