Yes... but for an interview?? Odd

Keep it simple and close to your resume/linked in. You can add a “fun fact” if you want but make sure it enriches the conversation. None of this “blacked out in Amsterdam in 2011 while on a study abroad” shit.

Went on a final interview today and the interviewer yawned through my presentation, was so BRUTAL with feedback, and was just super low-energy. This dude picked apart my entire presentation and frowned through all of it. Up until this point, everyone that I interviewed with said the presentation was great, but some things that need improvement. I just don’t understand how it’s normal that it’s expected that you make presentations and work for free— just to have someone take a huge shit on you.
