Apparently if you go to an interview desperately filled with hope, your eyes and body language will rat you out and people won't want to hire you. Ok, so they want to hire someone who's not desperate for a job? That's not easy to hide..

    Just wear two eyepatches and imitate a pirate limp. That should be sufficient camouflage

    It's Just Like the dating game. Nobody wants the needy guys and those who promise the most end up being the biggest disappointments

    @don-rager There is a correction there: there are honest-to-earth people out there such as myself and older people from my generation and we speak the truth, so if we promise something, it means we can do it. I for one never go to interviews telling or selling things that I don't have, unlike a lot of candidates.

    What's sad is that this is a common practice: the bad guys once ruined it for the good guys. For example, the good guys went out and sold fake promises to girls so that they are now extra defensive towards any guy who tries to approach them. Is it the good guy's fault? Nope.

    @CaptainRant "the good guys sold fake promises"? That doesn't sound like a good dude to me, that's a "nice guy".

    "please please please give me a job" screams "noone else wants to hire me", and that screams "there's a big reason why I'm unemployable".

    Might not be fair, but it is reality.

    @kescherRant Lmao, that was a typo. I meant to write: "the bad guys".

    @AlmondSauce I guess that can be connected with the dating analogy. Telling someone "please please date me" makes it seem like one's undesirable to others, so one shouldn't enact the typical behaviour that comes with said sentence.
