Tacky Sighting #2 You Know You’re Tacky When…the job interviewer abruptly ends your interview after you hang up from your cell phone call. Oh yes, you read that correctly. In this economy with millions of people out of work, someone was stupid enough to answer his cell phone during a job interview. Let me tell you the entire story.
A seemingly intelligent man with a Master’s degree from a top 10 business school was on the second interview for a marketing position at a major company. He comes into the interviewer’s office puts down his briefcase and lays his cell phone on the interviewer’s desk (faux pas #1). The interview is going well when all of a sudden his cell phone starts to vibrate. The seemingly intelligent man not only answers the phone in the middle of the job interview but also walks over to the window in order to get a better signal. Are you kidding me?!? As soon as he hung up, the interviewer told him he had no other questions and asked him to leave.
Avoid Being Tacky Tip #2 When going on a job interview leave your cell phone in your car! If must have it with you, make sure you turn the phone OFF and leave it in your briefcase or purse.
