Racism Is Probably Not Helpful In A Job Interview

We have been following tumblr-er “likesdinosaurs” as she heads into her 13th week of unemployment.

A recent post on her blog describes a group interview she went on. Quite frankly we are horrified.

Dinosaurs herself was just fine, but the other people in the group interview, well…

One forgot her name when introducing herself.
Another harped on her weaknesses.
A third said she was “good at understanding spanglish, and broken Chinese.”

The last said “I work well with people of all races.”

Dinosaurs writes, “At each point, I had to sit there and not say something. Like, ‘ouch, don’t say that.’”

Dinos was also apparently the only interviewee to bring her portfolio to the interview, something you should always do if you’re applying for that sort of position.

So we’re hopeful. And horrified.
