Brain In The Office

Never go into a job interview unprepared. Always do your research ahead of time. Be ready to answer any questions they may throw at you, no matter how insane, irrelevant, or ridiculous they may sound. In fact, I have found that the best strategy is to answer an absurd question with an even more absurd answer. It shows them they are dealing with an original thinker, a maverick, someone who is willing to go way, way out on a limb carrying a saw. And not afraid to use it! Let's say the interviewer starts with this one: "Did you bring your resume?" You should chuckle slightly, look them directly in the eye and say, "Yes, I brought it. And I'll show it to you, but then I'll have to kill you." Now they're thinking, wow, this person really does want the job. The next question will probably be, "When can you start?" Of course to this you say, "When can you fart?" That makes them realize they're dealing with a poetry lover, a real intellectual type. At this point the interview is almost certainly nearing its conclusion. You've clearly charmed the pants off them, so before they can utter another word, you should jump out of your chair and yell as loudly as you can, "Okay, okay, put your pants back on!" And don't worry if the interviewer is a woman and she's wearing a dress. See, once again you've turned the tables on her, and she'll think, damn, I knew I should have worn pants today! Well, that's about it. Oh, just one more thing. If the security guards are carrying guns, then it's probably a good idea not to say another word. Save it for your next interview.
