Rate Your Students has posted some concluding thoughts on the job interviewing scene from the perspective of the job candidates. Here’s one that represents a range of viewpoints, from “Three interviews and each one was friendly and just like talking to friends. I’m stoked for the future,” to “This is how it works? I felt like a piece of meat – and not in a good way.” (Is there ever a good way to feel like meat? Special tip for the Meatman: showing up on time for your interview and not an hour late sure helps start things off on the right foot, doesn’t it?)
And, you knew this was coming, didn’t you? “Diaper Dave” wrote in to justify the behavior of most of the ten boneheaded candidates from yesterday’s post. I’m pretty sure Dave is a senior faculty member posing as a young turk jerk. Just a guess–I could be wrong. Tell me: do you think he’s sincere?
