"A sentence not often heard in a job interview: "I'm between bands right now."
This was said by a candidate for the job of Total Politics Political Correspondent, for which we are interviewing today. I thought it was quite hilarious and ask for permission to twitter it. This then provoked a couple of even funnier responses from my Twitter and Facebook followers...
"What are your weaknesses?"
Reply: "I don't like getting up in the mornings and I'm disorganised."
Interviewer laughs. "No, seriously, what are your weaknesses?"
Reply "Seriously, those are my weaknesses......""
Interviewer: 'What are your weaknesses?'
I do have a funny story myself from an interview I conducted once, concerning a woman with a full grown beard. But I had better not tell it or I will be accused of God knows what. And having written that, no doubt now I'll be accused of blaspheming.
Anyone got any other funny interview stories?
