I have never been turned down from a job, but after this interview I was CERTAIN this was it, this was going to be my first rejection ever..

I was applying for a very competitive internship with a major accounting firm. They took all candidates out to dinner the evening before (there were about 30 of us and only 2 positions available)…I was assigned a mentor (a current employee of the firm) who would take me to my interviews the next morning. Well, that next morning while I was in the conference room waiting to be called in for one of my scheduled interviews (amongst all my peers and their mentors), we were all making small talk.

Somehow we were talking about silly things that happened to us at one point or another (probably just to help ease our nerves)…I decided to tell a story of how I was pulled over by a cop one time for driving too slow. Only I said “There was this one time where I was pulled over by a cock, I mean cop”….holy F…did I just say that?!

Not to mention this was before I even interviewed with anyone yet…I go home totally crushed only to find out my fly was open the ENTIRE DAY. In fact, the zipper was broken this whole time- damn my new suit!!!

Surprisingly, I was 1 of the 2 who received an offer…guess the “cock” isn’t that bad after all…(but than again my mentor was male)…

While at a pre-interview reception the night before my interview on campus, I went up to meet my interviewer. I had recently studied abroad and since travel is usually an easy conversation, I brought it up. Within seconds, the interviewer said with a straight face “Wow. I would never do that. I hate traveling. Its a waste of time.”  I was so shocked, I didn’t really say anything else and the interview the next day was super awkward. Got a second interview though! 🙂
