The Interview


  The afternoon had gone well and we were coming to the end of  our wild card candidate…we were not disappointed as with all wild card  he came with a a caveate …I was asked to summarize  by my rather reluctant collegues “We need somebody who smiles” I explained to a particularly skitish looking applicant …”You just don’t strike me as an enthusiastic team player a born communicator someone who naturally makes people feel at ease … I am slightly sorry but in this instance we will not be furthering this application.” He looked genuinely disappointed. . ” Is there any constructive suggestions I can take on board to improve my chances in the future Mr Mauricio OConnell.?” My colleagues lowered their heads and began fiddled with their pens.. I paused reached across the table and gestured with my hand…” Well you can get rid of the beak for a start ..good day! ” and shewed him to the door
