Dumb Job Applicants, I learned new stuff today, Google tips and Tricks, It's Go

6:15 If you're looking for a job, you want to put your best foot forward. In an interview situation especially. Here are some people that did really dumb thing in interviews. Readers Digest got these stories from hiring managers etc. :(

Read all of them here: http://www.rd.com/slideshows/funny-interviews/?trkid=outbrain-all

Took the edge off...with a drink.

"I swear this is true: Someone threw his beer can in the outside trash can before coming into the reception area."

Hey: TMI, people.

"A guy once talked during the interview about how an affair cost him a previous job."

Read the directions wrong.

"We ask prospective job applicants at our business to fill out a questionnaire. For the line 'Choose one word to summarize your strongest professional attribute,' one woman wrote, 'I'm very good at following instructions.'"

Grossed out the interviewer.

"Someone once blew her nose and lined up the used tissues on the table in front of her."
Anonymous HR professional

Misunderstood the work.

"An individual applied for a customer-service job, and when asked what he might not like about the job, he said, 'Dealing with people.'"

Brought a sidekick. Who wasn't patient.

"Once an applicant's friend came in and asked, 'How much longer?'"
Anonymous HR professional

Listed all experiences...relevant or not.

"I had somebody list their prison time as a job. And an exotic dancer who called herself a 'customer service representative.'" 
Sharlyn Lauby, human resources consultant in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Came hungry.

"I had someone eat all the candy from the candy bowl while trying to answer questions."
Anonymous HR professional

Called in an understudy.

"The candidate sent his sister to interview in his place."

6:45 I learned this today: 

If you point your car remote at your head instead of the parking lot to increase the range--and could possibly find your car more easily. Thanks Buzzfeed! Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tceVZtnUQd0

-use the arrows on your keyboard to advance videos on YouTube. The numbers work too.

-Test batteries to see if they are good by standing them up and if it's still good, it will usually stand straight up, the one that's bad will usually bounce and fall over.

-The one that I found most interesting is if you are in a parking lot and you can't find your car, point your car door opener at your head to increase the range of the signal. Your head (according to Buzzfeed) acts as an antenna. Who knew?

 

7:15 Google tips and tricks

Web search, image search, email - odds are you use Google for at least one of these things every day. But just because you use something every day doesn't mean you know every secret. In fact, I've rounded up five things you can do withGoogle that you probably had no idea. Some are useful and some are just fun, but you'll want to give them all a try. First off, even a lot of avid computer users don't know how many interesting things are "baked in" on the Google front page. You can type in a math equation, for example, or a flight number or FedEx tracking number, and get the data you're looking for. You can ask for the weather in whatever town you want, get a definition of a word and do conversions in weights and money and different currencies, too. (Just type in phrases like "define ineffable" or "$200 in euros.")

7:45 What does Justin Timberlake have to do with the phrase "It's gonna be May"?  Even President Obama posted it on his Facebook. It's a meme where the band N'SYNC performed the song “It's Gonna Be Me”. However, it sounds like Justin Timberlake sings “It's Gonna be May”. I didn't get it. Now I do. It's cute but really?

Here's the video for your viewing pleasure. To hear him do it, go to: 1:02 (ish)
