The worst interview in the history of job interviews


Business 2.0 reports in it’s best-of-the-year roundup: “Last May The BBC invited technology expert Guy Kewney to its studios for an interview about Apple’s iTunes Music Store. But when the cameras start rolling, the BBC correspondent found herself talking to the wrong Guy – Guy Goma, a computer technician who was waiting in the lobby for a job interview.”

Check out this hilarious video of the interview:

(He did not get the job.)

    I saw that clip back when it aired on last year, and I was very impressed that he handled it as well as he did. I really hope they hired him. ;)

    Doesn’t seem that fair to call this a bad interview. The guy walked in thinking he was interviewing for a tech job, which doesn’t require on-camera presence. Suddenly he finds himself surrounded by cameras, on live TV, being interviewed about something irrelevant to the job he wants. No wonder he looks like a deer caught in the headlights.

    Hi Penelope,
    It does appear that the you tube vid has been taken down :(
    Any where else you think it can be viewed. Funny to watch and see the whole deer in the headlights thing…Poor Guy, thought he was getting a cool job with the BBC. Sandy
