Recruiter: Oh yes, one last thing. Just send us a selfie when you get to your interview.
Recruiter: You just need to text or Whatsapp us a selfie when you’re at the office safely.
Me: No, I’m not going to send you a selfie, that’s just bizarre!
Recruiter: It’s our policy.
Me: It’s not law though so I’m afraid I still won’t be sending you a pre-interview selfie.
Me: Copy my LinkedIn photo if you desperately need my photo.
Recruiter: …and so it’s a really casual environment. The men tend to turn up in shirts and jeans and the girls turn up in all sorts, from dresses to jeans!
Me: So what do the women wear?
A recruiter calls to prep me for my upcoming interview:
Recruiter: …and if they ask you what your greatest weakness is think of a negative and turn it into a positive!
The recruiter is being very patronising – this isn’t my first rodeo by any means.
Recruiter: And what were you planning on wearing to the interview?
Recruiter: Ahahaha yeah good but seriously, what were you thinking of wearing?
