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 should be more than enough to give you the job.

I would hire you on the spot.

I'm gonna say no too. but good luck

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?

If I was hiring, that response would get me to hire the over somebody equal who gave a boring answer.

Steve Holt!

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.

I'm awesome No you're not, dude don't lie. I'm awesome Riding round in my moms ride

That should be more than enough to give you the job.

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.

I actually liked #22's comment much better than mister blink 182, much more thought out.

There are thumbs for that, 63.

Don't worry OP, you'te awesome!!!

I would hire you on the spot.

#3, I'm awesome. So, what dental plan do you offer and how much do you match my 401(k)? See you on Monday! What should I wear?

#34 If you play your cards right... Nothing.

#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.

O.o Thank you for the image of assless chaps.

Aren't all chaps assless? Otherwise they'd just be leather pants.

Hey, you never know, you might just reek of so much awesomeness that they'll hire you. Actually, on second thought, nope.

At least you tried...

It depends what kind of job you were being interviewed for, for me to say FYL or YDI.

At least they know you have confidence.

Yeah- I probably would have cried with insecurity at any possible sign of "Fuck off why did you apply".

I bet you are awesome.

Perhaps they admire your courage; all is not lost OP

Yup, I know people who have done exactly the same and were hired. Good luck!

Nothing like the good old taste of foot in your mouth.

Isn't that a disease? You should go see a doctor my friend.

You're hired
