Job interview nightmares

Interview nightmares: Employers too narrowminded Interview nightmares: The nervous gesticulator Job interview nightmares: It's getting personal Job interview nightmares: Which company is this? 'I don't employ married women' Name, experience... weight? Job interview nightmares: I messed this one up... Interview nightmares: 'Um, cos I'm awesome?' The creepiest interview ever Sorry, how old are you?

I always get nervous in interviews.

The worst moment I've had in an interview was when I got nervous and botched up a question, with both horrifying and hilarious results.

I was going to ask my three (male) managers how long their company had been in the building for. "How long have you guys been here for?" was what I wanted to ask them.

Instead, to my horror, it came out as "How long have you been guys for?" - as though they were three post-op transsexuals.
