Your 10 Wildest Job Interview Stories

Many of us struggle with first impressions: first interviews, first dates, first days of school, “first times” – the bad ones are the most difficult to erase. But there is something about turning our own painful experiences into stories – humour ascribes some value to a moment we’d rather forget.
All we can do is share and listen, trade and laugh.
Last week, we asked readers for your most awkward and/or mortifying job interview stories; over 150 of them were traded with ease. Now it’s time to laugh.
“Halfway through, I managed to get my thumb ring stuck in my necklace and had to sit through the rest of the interview with my hand stuck to my neck. It wasn’t too bad until one of the interviewers tried to shake my hand at the end.” –Anonymous
