Irregular Job Interview Advice

When I saw this recent “job interview advice” in the classified ad section of a newspaper, I was at a loss for words.

Don't be annoying

Don’t be annoying? That’s a start, but it doesn’t take a job interview very far, does it?

Other job advice of this sort:

– Wear shoes
– Look at the person interviewing you
– Make sure to show up on the day of your appointment
– Avoid talking about recent criminal activity
– Don’t check Facebook in the middle of a sentence
– Don’t fall asleep

Do you have any other advice for job interviews?

    Things have certainly changed since I joined the workforce few decades back. These admonitions did not even to the level of consciousness.

    Is anyone expected to believe that this is the most positive and constructive thing one can do in regards to the securing of a job, “JUST OVER BROKE”

    “I make a living by what I get, I make a life by what I give”

      I recall another question that a hopeful Job-seeker should never ask: “do you ever press charges?”

    What’s wrong with it? The only problem I see with this list is HOW LONG IT IS!!!! I mean that’s waaaaaaay to much to have to remember! Guess I will just have to prioritize the list and hope I can pull it off. It’s just….. Is it really necessary to wait until AFTER the interview to check my Facebook feed? I mean what if something really important happens and I miss being a part of it because of some job interview for a job I might not even get? Geesh
