Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Farmgirl Paints said...

i didn't get the strawberry one... too funny:) i like the one about sitting on the floor, or maybe another could be "do you mind if i bring my pet to work with me?"

Angela said...

hehe Becky you must be the funniest friend to hang around with! Oh I must say I love your son's hair! I have a student in my class (half black, half hispanic) and he is just the cutest little boy ever! I wish I could hug and squeeze him like a teddy bear! hehe =D

I've been off my A-game lately with job interviews, I don't know why. Hopefully these tips will help me on the next one :-P hehe

Great photos, as always!

That baby foot....absolutely yummy.

lol Thanks for sharing these. Pretty goofy.

This reminds me of Kendall asking me yesterday what a "fax machine" is...

I'm sitting here imagining how much fun you must have had matching photos with each of those tips! Becky, you have no idea how much you brighten my day with your humor. Photojournalistic humor... that's my Becky. :<)
btw... as a former FedEx manager who did my share of interviews, it's never a good idea to ask about a company's policy on being late and act ticked off about it hwne it's obviously too strict. HELLO...we are FEDEX... absolutely, positively... guaranteed by 10:30 or your money back. Being on time is PRETTY important around here.... ! NEXT!!!

For each one of those I'm thinking of a different someone at my office. And I'm *sure* they've made those comments and yet, somehow, still got hired!

Too funny....I just finished my resume and started looking for a PT job. I don't think I could do any of those things! Have a wonderful weekend!

Krystyn said...

That's too funny! I think I might have to pull some of those out soon.

And, of course, I love the photos.

Gorgeous photos and funny interview answers.

Kim said...

I loved the one about the resume being stronger but not feeling like making anything more up! That cat photo was mesmorizing. FYI: be careful who you use as a reference - I used one of my friends once and she told the potential employer that I was a real dog lover and that if I'll take off work in a heartbeat when it comes to my dogs - yikes! Great post and as usual - wonderful photography!!
