You said what on your interview?!

Thanks to Jackie Farwell of The Associated Press for providing these lovlies courtesy of a recent poll by staffing firm Accountemps. In this poll executives were asked to name the wackiest pitch they’d ever heard from a job seeker. Here are some of their responses:  

“An individual told me he was allergic to unemployment.”


“One candidate said that we should hire him because he would be a great addition to our softball team.”


“A person said he had no relevant experience for the position he was interviewing for, but his friend did.”


“One person brought his mother to the job interview and let her do all the talking.”


“One job seeker said he should get the job because he had already applied three times and felt that it was now his turn.”


“One candidate sang all of her responses to interview questions.”


“One individual said we had nice benefits, which was good because he was going to need to take a lot of leave in the next year.”


The nonscientific national poll included responses from 150 senior executives with the nation’s 1,000 largest companies.
