Funny but real answers at the MBA Interview

The wait for the R1 Applicants at ISB is very stressful and I though of some stuff that may just lighten up the atmosphere and help cope with the stress of waiting…

At the MBA Interview…

Me: tell us about your strengths…

Candidate: I always trust my instincts and if they don’t work I instinctively try something else…

Next…

Me: So what did you learn from this prank on your TEAM?

Candidate: Laugh alone and the world thinks you’re an idiot…

Next…

Me: What is the 1 lesson u have from ur 3 failed ventures?

Candidate : To have faithful ppl run ur business hire the needy but never the greedy!

Next…

Me: Tell me something about yourself that is not on your profile here…

Senior candidate at the MBA interview when asked to comment on ‘Leadership’ said…

“These days being a leader is difficult … you never know if people are following you or chasing you.”

Next…

Candidate: My goal is to live a life as detached as that Buddhist Monk Alumni of your school.

Me (With a startled expression): Then Why do you plan to do an MBA at ISB.

Candidate: NETWORKING

And finally…

Me: What is your short term Goal?

Candidate: Well win 5 Crores in KBC. Become a celeb and enter BigBoss. Show how humorous you are and start anchoring a comedy night show.

(No this didn’t happen at a real interview… this was a friend of mine giving me mock interview practice for voice over Skype training).

If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional, wait until you hire an amateur.
