Have you ever lied during an interview?
I remember when I was in college.... I applied at a collection agency that I could walk to from the English building. They asked me "why do you want to work here?" I said "it's a job, it's convenient & I need $" = what else are you supposed to say?
Interviewer: "So what's your biggest weakness?"
Interviewer: "I don't think honesty is a weakness..."
Me: "I don't give a shit what you think."
Yeah... I've lied in an interview before. I feel like some of the questions they ask almost require you to lie a little bit. I feel like the questions are more to see if you're smart enough to know what to say, and not necessarily the truth.
surprised more people haven't....
I try so hard bot to lie that when an interviewer asked (today actually) "What do you do that's fast paced?" I said "Well, I finish homework at the last minute pretty often. That's pretty fast paced."
Made her laugh so hard haha.
what was the interview for?
Im more likely to under play my strengths than over play.
I said I was in the robotics club when it was actually the engineering club. I got the names flipped in my head... Not a big deal really.
