Gloria C.,
Clearwater, FL

“Boss, good news: I got rid of the virus!”

 

A few words with Gloria:
What do you do for a living?
I work as a Sales Associate and also as a Bilingual Research Interviewer in two different companies.
Has your sense of humor ever helped you on the job?
Almost 90% of my time at work is spent talking to clients on the phone, so having a sense of humor is the fastest way to build rapport with them and create engaging conversations. Wearing a smile is my best outfit at work and anywhere.
Ever used humor in a job search?
On an interview process, I had to create a marketing idea for an useless article in a matter of minutes. By the end of the meeting, the interviewer asked me what I would do if I felt bored at my job, my answer was that I would get one of those articles to entertain myself. He laughed and I got the job.
What’s your best advice for jobseekers?
Always be professional and dare yourself. We are capable to overcome any challenge, don’t let the fear of failure stop you.
What do you find funny and not funny about job search?
I find funny some of the questions I’ve been asked at interviews. I know they are testing the applicant’s knowledge and character for the best fit in a position; but they keep me thinking: really? And definitely not funny the anxiety as a job seeker, one experiences.
