Stories of how insensible candidates torture employers are shared frequently around the internet. Seemingly, the weird behaviour of candidates at job interviews is a topic people will never grow tired of.
In a recent blog post on Heawork, a poster shared how a fresh graduate harassed an interviewer by bombarding him with the “Will you hire me?” question.
The writer of the post said the candidate, a communication graduate, had been impressive throughout the interview, until she popped the question – “Will you hire me?”. The interviewer was dumbfounded, since any sensible person would know the interviewer needs to meet with more people before coming to a decision. But the interviewee didn’t stop there.
She also asked “How much are you going to pay me?”, seemingly expecting to receive a detailed salary offer right then and there.
And this is not the end of the story. The candidate called the interviewer a few days after the interview and cornered him with the “Will you hire me?” question again. This time, she tried to be even more “convincing” by saying she had a number of offers on hand and hoped the interviewer could give her an answer.
On the bright side, when facing a candidate as crazy as this one, it leaves the interviewer with no regrets after cutting her loose.
