Because you all loved the CV Bloopers post a few weeks back, we thought we’d treat you to another light-hearted post. This time, it’s some of our favourites from the world of interview mess-ups! Enjoy!

From work911 “… brought her large dog to the interview“. Now, we really do love our pets but even the cutest puppy in the world is not going to secure you that dream job. Or is it…?

From Forbes: “Candidate said he had to quit a banking position because he was always tempted to steal“. There really is such thing as too much honesty…!

From Reader’s Digest: “Someone threw his beer can in the outside trash can before coming into the reception area.” We understand that interviews can be nerve wracking but it’s probably best to find a different method of coping!

From “Someone interviewed with us for a receptionist position in a radiology clinic. She had recently been a nursing student, and said she had dropped out, because she wasn’t fond of the medical aspect and had a hard time working with people.” It’s always wise to make sure the job you’re interviewing for is one you actually want!

From Social Talent: “Halfway through, I managed to get my thumb ring stuck in my necklace and had to sit through the rest of the interview with my hand stuck to my neck. It wasn’t too bad until one of the interviewers tried to shake my hand at the end.” Test running your interview attire never hurts…

We hope you enjoyed our top 5 funniest interview bloopers – we’ll be back with more! Thankfully, none of these were experienced first-hand by us!
