Around the Web – Recruiters reveal silly candidates

29 October 2012

The Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten has asked large staffing firms such as Adecco, Randstad and ManpowerGroup to reveal some of the silly things candidates have said and done during the recruitment process.

Another was so nervous he could not remember what job he had applied for while one candidate stuck his chewing gum under the table, having forgotten to get rid of it before the interview had started. Bringing a skateboard to the interview and tidying up the recruiter’s office is also regarded as a no-go!
