    “I wanna hire this person” : That what too ***.

    But seriously, i agree you have to act, talk partly BS and exaggerate. Or else you won’y be unique to them. To these capitalists. Act as if you will/want to become a slave, but your real purpose is having a normal/good salary. If you find a better job later you will leave the capitalist company and go to another.

    I have posted here before, and was inappropriately called a communist. let me put the record straight and say i am NO communist, nor do i share the idea of communism. but i would encourage self belief and not to be a slave to anything, including a multinational company, as this is very dangerous for ones self and man-kind….

    Please do your selves a favor and read the book Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. STOP this capitalist way of programming people slaves…………..

    There’s no need to say one is completely devoted to a certain job. That shows low self-esteem, if you only care for your job you’ll lose the people who love you and for whom you work so hard. Poor guy!

    you communist fool.

    of course, everything you say wouldn’t exactly be true. this videos shows what interviewers are looking for.

    as for interviews, you have to BS and perhaps exaggerate in order to have an edge over other candidates. its how it works.

    ADDITION:

    I have been in the hiring business myself for quite some years. You would not believe how far competence and qualification goes. Believe it or not, but how good someone is - edication, track record, years of experiemce go a long way. From a certain oint onward - if really good money is payed for the job - it is demanded, that you show social skills. Since a job interview is essentially a sales talk - this is where they test it.

    peace

    In this setting it is irrelevant if they believe what they are saying themselves. It is also pretty irrelevant if the interviewer believes it. They know that applicants sweettalk themselves. The point is to find out how well they perform during the interview.

    And once you have a family it is rather difficult not be a slave of the system in one way or another.
    Some of my not so capitalist friends got their ***** kicked by their own kids once those kids found out about the world.

    peace

    Capitalist Slave…….. Type A personality — lets translate that…. ohh yea Capitalist Slave…..
    it makes me sad to see this type of person actually believe in what they are saying.

    tosumitup, you’re an idiot. people are picked for their skills and how ideal for the job they are, and nothing else. OH and you’ll get the job cos you’re a woman?please…

  17. joshonator12 on July 8th, 2009 at 2:43 am

    thats the first thing i thougth when watching this

  18. tosumitup on July 13th, 2009 at 4:54 am

    Need work? Being a minority, or handicapped, or a woman, or any other label is crucial to finding work. These qualifications will not only keep you from getting laid off, they will also automatically find you any job you’d like! Education, being a veteran, not doing drugs, volunteering, a number of things you do have control of, usually have no bearing in the hiring process. So, concentrate on your politically correct advantages and stress those at the your next job interview!
    Good luck!
