In the past, we've shared some anonymous confessions from people who have had terrible job interviews. They shared some mortifying mistakes such as crying because they didn't know how to answer the questions, and mistaking the word "punctuality" for "punctuation."
Now, we want to share what things can be like when you're sitting on the other side of the table. Several managers used the Whisper app to reveal the things they think about when they hire someone. Many of their responses highlight how unfair the hiring process can be which serves as a reminder to always do anything you can to put your best foot forward. Of course, not all hiring managers care whether you push your chair in after an interview or have facial piercings, but it's a good to keep in mind that they're often judging you in ways you might not think twice about.
Some of their confessions are surprisingly awful, but if you didn't get a job because of something as ridiculous as being "classically beautiful" or having kids, then perhaps it's a good thing you didn't have to work with that person anyway.
