We’ve all been there: the dreaded job interview. As unnerving and stressful as they are it’s to be expected that mishaps are bound to take place. Here is a list of the 15 worst job interview calamities that will leave yours in the dust. Next time you bomb an interview, feel free to check this list out; it’ll be certain to brighten your day and make you feel a bit better!

1. You’re Related to Who?

It’s never a good idea to badmouth your old boss, no matter how much you disliked him or how intensely you feel that she should have been the subordinate, not you. This applicant spent the length of their interview bellyaching about their former boss totally unaware of their interviewer’s relation to their aforementioned boss. They even had the same last name!

2. Zzz…

Remember back to your younger days in school where they stressed the importance of a good night’s rest before a big test like the SAT? Well the same goes for job interviews. It looks like this applicant failed to heed the advice of his tenth grade English teacher when he dozed off right in the middle of his interview!

About the author

After working at various design practices on a full-time and freelance basis, and starting his own design firm, David McFadden saw that there was a gap to be filled in the industry. In 1984, he created an expansive hub for architects and hiring firms to sync up, complete projects, and mutually benefit. That hub was Consulting For Architects Inc., which enabled architects to find meaningful design work, while freeing hiring firms from tedious hiring-firing cycles. This departure from the traditional, more rigid style of employer-employee relations was just what the industry needed - flexibility and adaption to modern work circumstances. David has successfully advised his clients through the trials and tribulations of four recessions – the early 80’s, the early 90’s, the early 2000’s, and the Great Recession of 2007.
