#59 The Interview

Claire bent down, quickly wiped the sweat from her brow in a way she hoped wouldn’t be too obvious, and picked up the pen she’d ‘accidentally’ dropped.

“So, what makes you right for this position?”

“I’m hard working, a quick learner and I’m really passionate about the job.”

“Okay, and can you give me a reason I haven’t already heard five times today?”

Claire’s mouth hung open before she thought to snap it shut. How was she meant to answer that?


“That will be all, thank you for your time.”

He stood up, brushed the creases from his pin-striped suit, and began to walk towards the door.

“Wait!” She said the word without having any idea what would come next. “I’m right for this job because even when an interview is clearly over, I’ll yell something to keep trying. I’ll always keep trying.”

“I’ll call you on Monday.”

    Making yourself stand out in an interview can be tricky. Passion can count for far more that yr cv. So story was spot on.
