clown-job-applicant2After much interest in our 10 Job Interview Mistakes Every Job Seeker Should Avoid article, we’ve asked employers and hiring managers to share some of the craziest responses they’ve gotten from applicants.  Believe it or not, the following responses were given by job candidates to questions asked at job interviews.  For obvious reasons, none of these candidates got hired.  Enjoy:

Why Are You Interested in this Position?
  • “To keep my parole officer from putting back me in jail”
  • “I’m allergic to unemployment”
  • “As you know, finding full time employment is very difficult right now. I have applied to over 200 positions within the last 2 years”

wacky-job-applicantsCongratulations!  The contract agency just called, and you’ve got an assignment with ABC Company.  Here are some ways you can ruin the chance you’ve just been given.

1. Don’t show up on time.  After all, it takes a while to get your hair perfect, and who knows what the traffic is going to be like?  And how can you face a new job without your beloved half-caff?

2. In fact, don’t show up at all.  After all, jobs are easy to get, right?  And your agency won’t care that they have no idea why you aren’t where they sent you.  Don’t you dare call anybody to let them know you’re not coming in – that’s why you gave them all those phone numbers, so they can call you!

Fire the fingerA portfolio is not just for artists any more. It is simply a collection of work you have done, displayed in a visual manner. Your portfolio can be hardcopy or digital, but it should definitely reflect the best you have done in a relevant work role.

It can include items done in school or even volunteer work, but they should be professional quality, have a clearly stated purpose and include results, when possible.

Professionals who could benefit from the use of a portfolio include anyone in marketing or advertising, writers, editors, anyone who works on websites in any capacity, and even those responsible for financial planning or accounting, with those nice colorful graphs and detailed plans. Anything that you put a lot of work into that can be represented in a visual way will work in a portfolio. A computer programmer, for instance, can include a visual of the code of a project alongside the final user visual. An interior designer can use before and after shots. A lawyer can insert newspaper clippings along with their briefings.

Here are a few practical things you can start doing today. It’s important to mention this list is just a start. There are many, many other ways to go green.

Don’t forget about your computer, your monitor, your printer, your photocopier and other equipment. Don’t use air conditioning if the heating is on.  Interesting fact: office computers waste one billion dollars worth of electricity each year by being left on when they are not in use.
