~Describe yourself in one word~

*sarcasm* Ahhh, the joy and delight I get from interviews! *end of sarcasm*

I had an interview this afternoon for a position, and that was one of the questions. How in the world do you describe yourself in one word?

The interviewer told me that she didn't know what she would say about herself. Hmmmm.

I said "honest" which is one characteristic that I hope describes me, but I also aspire to other character traits as well.

What would you say about yourself if asked that question? One world only.

ONE word?! Puhleeeeeze!!

OK I'll play along.....'Loyal'.

What a dumb interview question. Of course I think the old 'What is your biggest flaw?' is the absolute worst interview question ever! (o;

Well Blogger is being a bit of a booger so I'll see if it works this time of not.

My one word is "devoted". I'm devoted to my Lord Jesus, my husband, children and the people of Croatia.

This was fun, thanks!

My husband once had an interview where they asked him this very question. His answer: "employable!" (He got the job, by the way!)

My word would be dependable.

My brother was asked once "if you could be any animal, which one would be it be and why?" He said he wanted to say "none. I like being human!" Instead he said a cat because they are independent.

Interviews are so silly anyway. Its just a big dance around the real question...how much does this job pay? LOL
