From fretting over tricky questions to worrying about what outfit to wear, job interviews can be emotionally exhausting - and there's always a curveball, it seems.
Job-seekers and bosses have been sharing their most awkward interview experiences in a Twitter thread sparked by journalist Harriet Williamson, from London, which makes for hilarious reading.
Moment - Interviewee - Room - Cupboard - Door
There's the fist-in-mouth moment when an interviewee tried to leave the room via a cupboard that looked like a door, and the hungover candidate who accidentally clung onto the hand of their potential boss all the way to the interview room.
Williamson posted the question: 'Twitter, what’s the worst job interview you’ve ever had?' and soon found a rich seam of cringe-worthy content.
Dr - Hilary - Murray - Dublin - Interview
Dr Hilary Murray, from Dublin, shared: 'Decided to study interview tips: I’d read a firm handshake and not looking away from the interviewer showed enthusiasm.
'Guy walks in, I walk over to him shake his hand firmly and (walking back to seat) NEVER DROP MY INTENSE GAZE FROM HIS EYES till he sat down. He was terrified.'
Thomas - London - Drama - 'I - Stairs
Milly Thomas, from London, shared her drama, saying: 'I walked up the stairs to the very top and met the woman. I thought she was gesturing to the door ahead of her so I walked over, opening it and went inside. It was a storage cupboard. She stood there and watched.'
Laura, from London, chimed in: 'I had a trial shift (unpaid, of course) at a bar once where the first thing I did was cut myself while slicing a lemon and later on broke an entire tray of glasses including one falling over a man's head. Midway through the shift they started to call the other candidates'.
