My least favorite question

It’s common knowledge. At job interviews you either be completely honest or completely bullshit your way through. I happen to be a very analytical person. I choose to find ready made résumé templates and clichéd answers to questions written by Mr. Interview a thousand years ago that interviewers still fancy using. I can not be creative when explaining the value I would add at an organization. I can not explain my benefit to my current employer. I can not lie and every truth I say to myself sounds way overrated and over told.
At job interviews, basically, I lose my ability to wit.

My least favorite moment is when I’m asked to describe myself. Who is Job Applicant? I have absolutely no idea. Hard working, kind, and a fucking team player… sound like bullshit, bullshit, and bullshit. I can’t mesmerize myself into the trance of my being and morph it all into words. I wouldn’t even be able to pronounce the letters of MY PERSONALITY.

I once watched an underrated movie titled Final Cut. It was set somewhere in the future where people surgically plant a camera behind every born baby’s eye socket to record every moment of that baby’s life, edit it when they die, and play the special moments on their funeral.

If I could have stored my life on a CD, I would just drag it along with me and play it to the Nazi interviewer.

I need an answer to that question.
Any ideas?

but interviewers do know that the answers to their cliche questions are most likely to be cliche, so don't worry...

however, (and i am aware this too sounds cliche) you can think of the qualities you have as a person that would add to your workplace or whatever... like for example, u said analytical, that is considered good... perfectionists r liked in the workplace as well.... if ur not a team player, don't say it...

the key is to say it with confidence because u know it's in you.. whether the interviewer believes it or not doesn't matter...

and i thought u liked talking about urself and all, so u can always find the time to describe urself :))))) it's fun (i am a and i thought u liked talking about urself and all, so u can always find the time to describe urself :))))) it's fun (i am a narcissist)

Take yourself outside your head & imagine what it would be like to work with you. To be your colleague. If pain in the ass comes to mind - then maybe you shouldnt bother with this technique. If anything good comes to mind - Exaggerate!

Perfectionists tend to work alone. There’s always going to be a fuck up caused by a negligent team member. I’d say if there’ll be a fuck up then let me be all mine.

I don't like talking about myself. I do like blogging about myself though. There’s a massive difference my friend. :P
In reality, I prefer not to bore my listeners out of their non virtual existence.
Virtually speaking, we're all just a string of letters.

Hmm.. Working with me would be cool I guess. Working under me, as a subordinate that is, would probably be a pain in the ass.
