(This post was a Tangy Tuesday Pick! You can see the whole list here – http://blog.blogadda.com/2016/02/02/tangy-tuesday-picks-february-2-2016-weekly-blogs-indian-bloggers-blogadda)
This, as per me, is how interviews with me should be like:
Interviewer (Ir): Hi. Welcome here. Great to meet you.
Bangalore traffic gets the worst out of me. I curse while driving.
I was a geek in school and am not great at sports. Some may say that makes me lack the sports spirit. I can’t say they are wrong.
I can be competitive as hell. Sometimes, that means I compete even for silly things like who ate first. If I win, I do a rain dance to a song that goes, “I won, I won, I won.”, while pumping my fist in the air.
Also, I am a sore loser. Sometimes, when I lose to Sherlock in Poker or Jenga or even 10 Questions, I cry and threaten not to make dinner.
But, mostly, I am a nice person.
Ir: Why do you want to join us?
Ir: Any questions for us?
Me: Do you have napping rooms in office? How many leaves per year? Do you have Saturdays off? How good is the canteen on a scale of 1 to 10? What do you think about the French Court ruling that employees should not work beyond 5 pm? Can I read in office? What is the average number of versions you get people to make in their presentations? When was the last time you spontaneously declared a holiday?
Ir: You have been selected!
If only all interviewers could appreciate honesty.
