Break the Ice with Job Competitors

Is there anything more awkward than waiting in a reception area with someone who wants a job just as bad as you do? There’s no reason to be enemies. Precious the Unemployed Lion suggests making small talk and sharing something about yourself.

Hi, if you’re put in that very awkward situation of sitting with another candidate for the job, like you’re in a lobby or some less important place like a toilet, try to make small talk with them. Like, “Hi, I have AIDS. Did you know this was a job for people with aids?” And they’ll be like, “No, I thought it said ‘aid’ like an assistant.” “Nope, I called. I said, ‘Do you want an aid or somebody with AIDS.” They’re like, “With AIDS.” I said, “Yeah, that’s me. So what’s up, brother?”

The Mentality Behind Getting Along with Coworkers

You normally don’t get to choose the people you work with. With that in mind, Happy the Dolphin gives his advice on the mentality you need to have to get along with your coworkers.

Use Familiarity to Set the Job Interview Tone

Be personable in a job interview and let the interviewer know that you’re a person, just like him. Precious the Unemployed Lion tells you how to establish familiarity at the start to pave the way for success.

Without a doubt, the most important part of a job interview is the first impression. What I like to do is I like to look at the person, think about where I’ve seen them before, and then ask them if they’re that person. Like, “Um, hey, did I see you last night in the men’s room at the club? Where you were trying to give me a kiss for some reason and for some other reason I was like totally not rejecting it?” That should work pretty well.
