The Serenader

Hiring Horror Stories are scary but true tales sent to us from the interview trail. Have a hiring horror story? We’d love to hear from you.


Meet ‘The Serenader’… who, during her interview, asked the hiring manager out on a date! Appropriately, the hiring manager responded by ending the interview and nicely turning down the candidate for the job.

But not to be deterred, The Serenader returned to the campus the next day using the security badge she had used during her interview. She set herself up beneath the hiring manager’s window with a portable karaoke machine, and began to serenade him with the Carpenters’ “Don’t You Remember You Said You Loved Me Baby.”

We’d love to hear your hiring horror story. Feel free to share!
