Interview 1 (draft)
Posted on May 28, 2013
“Hi, nice to meet you. Thank you for coming.”
What was standing by the door was a cat, but it was late, and he didn’t care. He just wanted to go home.
So, the interviewer pointed to the chair in front of his desk, and gathered his papers into his hands while addressing the new comer.
“Okay. I will ask you a few questions today.”
He looked at the cat and nodded.
“So, how do you feel about a room that is dirty?”
“Would you feel comfortable in a dirty room?”
“Meow, meow.” It shook its head, left to right.
“Okay, fair enough.”
So, how would you handle a rude student?”
“Meow. Meow. Meow.”
“Tell me why do you want to work for us?”
The cat looked at the ceiling, then to the right and then slightly to the left; then, it jumped from the chair and started running around. It laped the desk and the interviewer twice before jumping back in the chair.
Finally after some minutes it stopped moving its paws nervously.
The interviewer stared at the cat for a long time before smiling slowly.
“Ah, yes, very good, thank you very much for your time. We’ll call you.”
