43 Weird Things Said in Job Interviews

This is hilarious.   CNN put together a story working with Career Builder on the funniest or weird things people said during job interviews.  What’s funny is that during the nervousness of something like an interview most of us are likely to say something we don’t necessarily mean to say.  Hopefully most of us are not this bad.

“I have a problem with authority.”

What kind of computer software have you used?

Do you have any questions?

“If you were a fruit, what fruit would you be?”

What are your hobbies and interests?

    LOL, this is great.
