1 The threat of mind-numbing interview prep on Thu May 17, 2012 7:48 am



Thankfully, never had to sit through one of those. However, considering I haven't had a steady job since my graduation 1 year and 3 days ago, maybe a little mind-numbing education on the subject wouldn't hurt too much.

Well done, Hilary, you've learnt the first lesson of interviewing well. Lie. Then lie some more. You see, and I know that this is weird, but for some reason, no employer wants to hear "I'm jobless and need the money" as an answer to the question "Why do you want to work here?"

Are you sure? Upon hearing that a potential employee is desperate for a job, I'd figure the employer would be ecstatic. The threat of poverty would practically guarantee that the employee would show up to work on time and put in his or her best effort every day to avoid getting a pink slip.

Like I said, it's weird but it's true. They usually want to hear something similar to what Hilary said - a declaration of admiration for the company (even if you've never heard of it before). I think that the implication they're looking for is that you like them so much that you'd work for them for free, if necessary.

Perhaps a jobseeker asking for money seems distastefully like hiring a mercinary. cyclops

Good bunny-girl. Know that you are beaten and accept the outcome that is giving to you. Still, it is great to see more of Hilary lately on these strips. Very Happy

Am I the only one who thinks she was gritting her teeth on the last panel? Laughing

I don't; she's too much of a sales/marketing pro for that. She's living and believing the "wide-eyed supplicant" lie for the benefit of her potential new employer.

Believe me, to avoid Job Club, you'd do the same thing.

I think she has a rather cute smile. Though I can't really be sure if she's gritting. My screen resolution's too large.

Thank goodness she avoided the interview practise sessions.
It's okay if she was made to do them though. They let you keep the part of the brain they cut out to make you smiley and complacent.

It's bllllliiiiiiiiiiissssssssss

I think her bitchiness is probably a product of some kind of childhood issues. She probably didn't get that pony for her sweet 16 so burned the house down or something.

as someone who has been humiliated like that I feel just sorry for Hillary. That said, 8 weeks is not that bad - 6 month on the other hand...
