Today, I had a job interview. All was going well until the interviewer asked me, "So, why should we hire you?" Without thinking, I blurted out, "Because, I'm awesome!" Don't think I'll be getting that one. FML

Hey, OP here. After I said that, the interviewer busted out laughing- so there's a plus. She also said something along the lines of "Ya know, nobody says that sort of thing. Usually it's the boring 'I really need a job' type. But not you!" And laughed some more. I really need this job though, I've applied everywhere and this place is the first to call me. I won't know if I got it or not until next week, so I'm crossing my fingers!

That response shows that OP is fun, friendly and relaxed. as long as OP has the right qualifications personality is one of the most important aspects in choosing an employee. Now why did you say no?

Well actually 48 as a person who hires people a response like that usually brings to mind someone who can be lazy, rushes to conclusions and is immature.

Unless he was applying for a job at Kellogg's and the interviewer came back with, "Well, if you're so awesome can you see why kids love cinnamon toast crunch?" Then he's screwed.

#53, I'd hope at least she'd ask me to start with my assless chaps. You know, clothes required for work are tax deductions and I'd like to get the write-off for them.
