You go through so many interviews during a job search it becomes almost routine. Sometimes you decide to have a little fun with it. And sometimes you do things you don’t even realize until you’re walking out and you tell yourself, “I definitely will not be getting that job.”


Well, you’re not alone. Here are eight people who may have missed the mark during the interview, but #TheyHiredMeAnyway.



They may not be the most unusual interviews HR has seen, but as a job seeker, these are some pretty cringe-worthy stories.


Remember to always practice before an interview, and remain professional throughout—If these people can get the job, so can you! How bout dah?
