A few words with winning author Laural Stolicny:

 

What do you do for a living?
I am a STNA with a local nursing home.

Has your sense of humor ever helped you on the job?
Most definitely. When you work with the elderly, everyday can be a new adventure, not just for you but them as well.

Ever used humor in a job search?
Yes. I was interviewing for a nursing position and had to do the Heimlich on my interviewer who had swallowed her gum. So, I said, “Does that mean I passed the interview and hands on requirements ?” Needless to say, I started the next day.

What’s your best advice for job seekers?
My advice is to relax. The person interviewing you is probably just as nervous as you are.

What do you find funny and not funny about job search?
What I find funny (and also not funny) is that as soon as you accept a reasonable job offer, your dream job calls you for hire.
