Reflections on Interviewing
For anyone out there looking for a new job for the new year, I present to you some tips from Bridget's own interviews:
1) Always do proper research.
Interviewer, News: What do you think of the El Nino phenomenon?
Bridget: It's a blip. I think, basically, Latin Music is on the way out.
2) Relate to the job personally as well as professionally.
Interviewer, Children's TV: Do you have any children of your own?
Bridget: Oh, Christ, no. Yuck.
3) When all else fails, be honest.
Richard, Sit-up Britain: So, why do you want to work in Television?
Bridget: I've got to leave my current job because I've shagged my boss.
Then, you too can get a job where no one ever gets sacked for shagging the boss.
