11AM In­ter­views

In­ter­view­er: Are you per­sua­sive?
Can­di­date: I call it force of per­son­al­i­ty. Like, I read peo­ple and
then I get them to do things by act­ing dif­fer­ent ways. Like some peo­ple, I yell at them. I’m not mean but I yell at them. But like my boss, I can’t yell at him.
Interviewer:Because he’s your boss?
Can­di­date: No. He does bet­ter if I do like, a lit­tle girl act. You know? Like, “Oh please.”
In­ter­view­er: Um, okay. So, who is your fa­vorite designer?…This is­n’t a trick ques­tion. I just want to know.
Can­di­date: My fa­vorite de­sign­er is Unit­ed Col­ors of Benet­ton.
