Sometimes I can’t tell if a person is extremely confident or just insecure as fuck.
I cannot describe how emotional and intense it is to be listening to Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball while working out.
You must try it. It is ridiculous as fuck.
Today has been, by far, the most busy for me since I started working for Disney. Found myself communicating to several departments while managing all mobile projects for tomorrow’s site update since my higher up was out of the office.
Now here I am taking the train back home with room to breathe, content and jittery as fuck from today’s craziness.
I fucking love it.
You know how couples wear matching character shirts or crew necks at times to make themselves match and look cute and shit? Like when the chick wears Minnie Mouse, guy wears Mickey Mouse, Bamm Bamm, Pepples etc etc. Well one of these days, I’m going to be wearing a crew neck with Sailor Neptune with someone wearing Sailor Uranus.
Beat that biatches.
I had a discussion with my friend about an interview he went through. During the interview, he was asked only two questions and it was to explain his resume and talk about himself. It then proceeded to the hiring manager explaining more about the job description and immediately went to the, usually, long-awaited “Do you have any questions for me?”
I was pretty surprised hearing an interview going by that quick. I’ve been through interviews that have lasted from 7-12 different questions. Could it be that the hiring manager was in a rush or was already set with another candidate? Regardless of the reason, I think this way of interviewing candidates through a quick 1. Tell me about yourself -> 2. Questions for me? can yield surprising as fuck results. It can show the level of preparation, interest and passion the candidate has for the position and field. I know there are interview styles out there that are composed of just questions from the applicants (and not informational interviews).
With any position out there, you can easily break down the job responsibilities bullet by bullet and think of questions to help elaborate the position and that particular work environment. If not the position and work environment, I would love to see candidates ask questions about the interviewer’s experience and their thoughts about any related industry news. It creates conversation and will give the interviewer a lot of insight about how much knowledge and passion the applicant has for the position and field. I’m definitely not a recruiter or hiring manager (as I just recently graduated) but would love to see those kinds of questions if I were one.
Of course, with any interview approach, there are its pros and cons. Not going to dwell on each now but even so, these different interview structures do exist and are something to prepare for. I am curious as hell to see how candidates perform in an interview where, unexpectedly, they are only asked 1-3 questions with the ending “Do you have any questions for me.”
As for my friend, I’ll still have to ask again and see how he performed.

Man In Front: How rare is your steak?
Me: Holographic First Edition Charizard rare.
