Getting a job these days isn’t as easy as people think. There are several reasons why so many people are unemployed, and it’s NOT just the lack of opportunities.
1. The Casual
He always has a “I don’t give a shit” attitude. He’ll go to a job interview in his chappals with a scruffy beard and eat all of the interviewer’s candy.
2. The Hopper
This person has hopped more jobs than the number of underpasses in the city. Why work at one organization when you can get a feel of all the handful companies in the country?
3. The girl who interviews with mama/papa
Pakistan is amongst the few countries where grown women give interviews with their parents. It’s common for the interviewer to be interviewed and threatened by the moms.
Status: Discussing potential rishtas with mama
4. The Tension Patient
This person hates being at the center stage. The interviewer might feel like a total jerk for putting them in their torture cell.
5. The Rockstar
The typical business graduate who hasn’t done anything in life but claims to have conquered the world. It seems like being humble is dying trend.
6. The guy who doesn’t believe in using a cologne
May God save people who come close to this gentleman. The presence of his stench can be felt miles away. The interviewee will want to close the job opening after the smelly torture.
Status: Possibly thrown out of his own house
7. The Ex-Boss Hater
It’s common knowledge not to shit on your ex boss when you go for an interview. This person feels like it’s their obligation to tell everyone about the asshole.
Status: Sending hate texts to ex-boss
8. The Axact Degree Holder
This person has an impressive degree with mind boggling grades and achievements; however, after the interview the interviewer is sure that the candidate is a loyal customer at Axact.
Status: Applying for a job at ARY
9. Desperate Sheeda
This person has been looking for a job for quite sometime and is at a point that they has lost all faith in themselves. They will beg and plead to be hired for the position.
Status: Planning suicide
10. The Feminist
She hates on Pakistan’s naturally sexist interviewees. Equal Pay? Unfortunately not many interviewers understand what that means.
Status: Planning to kill all male chauvinistic assholes.
11. The Fashionably Late
A 7 pm card on a shaadi invitation means 9pm; however, a 9 am time for an interview does not mean 10am. Unfortunately, this person always wants to make a dhamakedaar entry.
12. Miss Meera’s Relative
If you are not good at spoken English, you shouldn’t speak it. This person has no skills and is hoping he/she impresses the interviewee with their broken English.
13. The Lazy Graduate From a Top University
This person went to a good college but didn’t perform well in classes nor did they do any interesting extracurricular activities. No company can match their unrealistic salary expectation.
Status: Changing salary expectations
14. The Butter Machine
This person will do anything to appease the interviewer and get the job. He/she knows that this is the only way they will get the job because that’s all they know how to do.
You are a casual fun loving person who doesn’t know what he/she wants to do in the next five years, but sitting behind a boring desk job certainly isn’t your future (or so you hope).
Status: Definitely Unhirable
