Ready to Ace this Job Interview

February 26, 2010

In preparation for my job interview today, I’ve been reading up on lots of common interview questions.  This way, I can think of really good answers.  Questions like:

Why do you want this job?
Answer:  So I can save up enough money to buy a cropdusting plane and pursue my lifelong dream.

So where do you see yourself in five years?
Answer:  The cropdusting plane, yep.  I like to set high but achievable goals for myself.

How would you describe yourself?
Answer:  Three words.  Hard-working, alpha-male, jackhammer.  Insatiable.  Merciless.

What is your biggest weakness?
Answer:  I have a weakness for Reese’s Pieces. 

The biggest lesson I’ve learned however, is the importance of the resume.  And in today’s tough job market, it’s important to stand out from the pack.  Please follow Doogie Howser’s advice in the video and make yourself an equally awesome video resume.

Tell me you wouldn’t hire someone with a resume like that.  Anyone ever had any weird interview questions that you didn’t know how to answer?  What are your biggest strengths and weaknesses that have made you a valuable employee?
