Do they want a joke? Or for you to tell them something funny that happened?

Wait...where are the wedding pics?


In what way do you think this story pertains to the type of job that you re applying for? It you are going to be a technical writer then I don't think its the story they will care about...KWIM?


Or if they just want to see what kind of person you are then maybe write soemthing about a blooper happend and how you quickly recovered from it!

Generally I would say stay away from personal stories of drinking and such...but is there something you can think of involving planning a party or even the wedding...something that would make them laugh but at the same time say wow shes on top of her sutff!


 


P.S. I love the pics...they are amazing looks like it was a blast!

lol.  that's a good one.  i loooove corny jokes.  there's the ol'


what do you call cheese that's not yours?


 


 


nacho (not-yo) cheese


 


maybe it's safer to stick to jokes.  cause all my "funny" stories are in some way showing my weaknesses.  i.e. i'm gullible, clumsy, forgetful....etc.  does not paint me in the best professional light. hahah

how about a funny story at a wedding youve been to or heard about? Maybe crazy aunt Martha who had a little too much to drink and started stealing everyones drink tickets from their menu cards? Then you could throw in how resourceful you would have been if you were there by following her and secretly stealing them from her and replacing them? or something along those lines in which you could tell the funny story and still mention how great of a worker you would be :)

Funny joke the priest at my retreat said.   A girl goes into a bar and orders 3 pints of beer and only drinks a couple of sips of each and what not.  Next time she goes in and does the same.  The bartender notices she does this for a couple of weeks.  He asks her why. She said.  I just got married and moved to this town and don't have my 2 Sisters with me.  Since I left them to be with my husband, we made a promise that we'd continue our tradition of having a pint of beer for each sister every Wednesday night.  The guy says o.k and goes on about his business.  The girl does this for a couple weeks. One night she walks in and orders only 2 pints of beer.  The bartender brings them to her and offers his condolences.  She asked why he did that and he answers her. Well, I noticed you only ordered 2 so I assume one of your Sisters is no longer with us.  The girl says no!! One of my Sisters just married a Jahobas witness! She can't drink beer anymore.. But lucky for my other sister and I... that rule doesn't apply to Catholics!!!
