Interview Questions, Part 2 - Ed's journal
Interview Questions, Part 2
The question was:
"Name 3 bad things about yourself"

The answers were

"One, I can only thing of two things."
"Two, actually I lied about that."
"Three, I can't count either."

"Last time someone asked me that, I jumped up on the desk and strangled them with their own tie. But I'm getting better now."

"I don't suffer you gladly".

"Fish" (just to confuse them).

Today's question is:
"Why would you like to work for our company?"

To get the ball rolling, we have:

"Because food and rent cost money" ('Duh' optional) from feanelwa.

Because I heard you wouldn't mind me stealing stationary.

Because I already live in the basement, and I wanted a shorter walk to work.

I was struck with awe at the elegance and beauty of your website.

"I applaud your attitude to smoking in the workplace. Now, do you supply them or do I bring my own kippers?"

"I believe the company ethos fits my ideal work-place environment,, while the skills I could bring to the role could help strengthen the company while providing me with ways in which I could increase my knowledge base and eventually become more cost-efficient and have an increased worth within the department. Besides I think I stand a good chance of shagging you."

I feel that I could leverage the synergies implicit in a new process/technology focus.
