The Perfect Job Interview

He knows what to say, because he knows what the boss really wants. She’s happy to find someone someone who will work out for the company and never make waves of any kind. This strategy won’t work if you’re interviewing through the Human Resources department, or in front of a committee of people with differing agendas, but this clever fellow might have a different script for those situations. None of this will ever happen in real life, but it’s the subtext of job interviews. This comic is from Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal.

Waayyy back, when I began work, resumes were only a thing for really fancy jobs. You usually gave copies of your school transcripts and a brief work history with some numbers to call for reference on a form printed by the hiring entity. When these new questions about work philosophy etc, became the norm, I never could understand why this wasn't the correct answer. Basically, I will do the work for money. Why did that become the wrong thing?
