    Interview tips
    Closing up an interview with a prospective candidate, I always ask them whether they have any questions for me. Here is what happened today:

    Cat: OK I think we are done here, do you have any questions?

    Candidate: Yes. (Silence)

    Cat: .... what is it?

    Candidate: Are you married?

    Cat: *stumped* What?

    Candidate: Well, I just thought you weren't

    Cat: *still stumped* Er, why?

    Candidate: You just look so happy, you can't possibly be married

    Cat: .....

      Was that a proposal ? or possibly flattery would get him the job.

      That's what I thought of you before, too! :-D

      You are lucky to have such a husband & family, really! (t'fu-t'fu-t'fu)

      I'd say that was a lame ass attempt to flatter you into giving him a job.

      And the Utah Jazz can kiss my ass. They ain't gettin' past the Lakers and MVP Kobe Bryant!!!

      It was a she, not a he. That is the reason why I posted the story here - I was just dumbstruck. If it were a guy, I'd brush it off as a lame attempt at flirting. But it was a girl!

      And Dot - it's JAZZ, baby! Jazz Jazz Jazz! :P

      Maybe it was flirting, Cat. :P
      Hey, We're moving to AUH this August. Would be great to meet for coffee once I get settled!

    • At 11/05/2008, 14:15, Blogger Taras said…


      That's a good place to start hiring out of the box:)!

      What's AUH? American University of Hindenburg???

      Dear sweet Qatar Cat: The Lakers and Jazz are playing tonight. Kobe Bryant and Co. will SQUASH THEM. The Utah Jazz will be pulverized. MVP! MVP! MVP!!!!

    • At 11/05/2008, 19:06, Blogger Qatar Cat said…


      I know!


      Maybe it was, lol. I'll have that in mind! And I can't wait to meet you!


      What, you mean I should tap into matrimonials for potential recruits? ROFL


      AUH = Abu Dhabi. If you can't figure it out yourself, you can always Google it, ROFL. How did you ever get accepted to Columbia? Beats me... :P :P

      GO JAZZ!!!

    • At 15/05/2008, 20:38, Blogger Dotsson said…

      Did you see how we whopped the Jazz last night?!?! Even when our MVP wasn't playing his best... we still kicked ass! Utah Jazz should stick to handing out bibles.
      The Lakers are unstoppable. We're gonna win the championship trophy this year.

      P.S. I plan on transferring to Harvard in my 2nd year ;)
