Why We Didn't Hire You

When you said your last boss is "mentally challenged" we wondered what'd you be saying about us.

It took us three days to get the aroma of Old Spice out of the office.

No, I don't think I look like Orson Welles.

Contrary to your resume's assertion, Harvard University is not in Philadelphia.

You might keep in mind that people who call themselves "geniuses" usually aren't.

We learned that your mysterious and vaguely-described job with the State of Montana involved making license plates.

You were a little too friendly with the receptionist.

Your tie contained portions of your lunch.

We really didn't want your uncle to attend the interview.

You might want to change your entries on My Space.

The "babemagnet" portion of your email address raised a few eyebrows.

We've seen less cleavage in a cocktail lounge.

You said you have no weaknesses. We can't have saints like that around here.

"A list of references that includes your godfather, your uncle and your little brother doesn't reassure me a whole hell of a lot."


Michael Wade said...

Thanks, Rowan. Given your consulting practice, I'll bet you've run into a lot of these.

doo-MAHS, my name's pronounced doo-MAHS.

Very funny! One of the many advantages of studying French.
