It is been a long time since I made my last post to this world. Most of you might be rejoicing, but that is not something that I wish to get into. For I have decided to not abuse on this site. I might follow you on twitter instead, and make your life hell. But that is for twitter, another place another time.

It has been an even longer time since I gave you 5 reasons on anything or have talked about interviews. When the last time I met you with 5 reasons, I was talking to the interviewee in you. Then, I thought I had to leave out quite a few of you, since you had already given interviews and now wanted to know why you should take one. So, this time I have come to talk to you. The ones who could be giving me a job in future.

So here they are, 5 reasons to take an interview:

Reason 1: You are a sadist. You like to watch girls cry, boys sweat and pretty girls giggle nervously. If you are the kind of person who sticks to pessimists for the doom they predict, and have an affinity for disasters, then you are exactly the person to make the interview a dramatic affair. Of course, you like drama of the calamity kind. For, you are a sadist.

Reasons 2: Interviews can do wonders for your confidence. Most of the interviewees will never know as much about your FMCG company as you do, about how you distribute and how you collect revenues. They could be MBAs, and they would still know lesser than you. No, how should it matter that you have been stuck in the same job and same position for the last 17 years. You did a Bachelors in Commerce, and they are MBAs. And you still know more than them. Isn’t that all that matters?

Reason 3: You are a masochist. No, not of the sexual kind, but the non sexual kind. You derive your gratification from being abused. The interviewee might really be an idiot that you think you are. But that man or woman would always think other wise. You are going to be abused, mocked and even vowed against, but you derive pleasure from all that.

Reason 4: The lady in the Human Resources Department is really pretty. And the only time you see her is during the process of recruiting.

Reason 5: Well, do you have a better way of finding out the right candidate to tolerate your temperament, your attitude, and of course the work at the organization? Well, you surely don’t.
