19 People Share The Mortifying Mistakes They Made During Job Interviews

"I was asked what my dream in life was. Apparently to survive the zombie apocalypse isn't the right answer in a job interview."

Job interviews are nerve-wracking, tough, and sometimes seriously embarrassing. It's an experience you go into knowing that you'll be judged the whole time and that pressure makes it easy to make mistakes.  

The good news is you're not the only one messing up or missing out on a job opportunity. Several people used the Whisper app to anonymously fess up to some of the mortifying mishaps that have happened during job interviews they've had. Most of them will seem much worse than forgetting to mention something about your résumé. 

The important thing to remember after slipping up during an interview is to learn from it. The next time you go into one, you'll be even better prepared and won't make the same mistake again.
