It was Workers’ Day on Monday in Nigeria, and in celebration of that, this week’s Creative Gist question is, what is your weirdest interview experience?
Have you seen the movie ‘The Intern’? 70-year-old Ben Whittaker, played by Robert Deniro, was picked by her boss Jules Ostin (Anna Hathaway), over a younger person, not because of his competence but because of his age. Of course, Ben’s character grows to become more important to Jules’ life, but the point is people get picked for jobs for the weirdest reasons sometimes.
The creatives we have today share some weird interview experiences- some of which might leave you rolling on the floor with laughter. You might find at least one interview experience relatable. So, let’s dive right into them.

The creative industry is booming and increasingly competitive. And so, anything can happen, including some of the interview experiences above. Everyone wants a great pay, work environment, and a career boost, but these rewards start with the interview process.
However, these interview experiences are not enough to generalise the norm in the creative community. So we would like to know, what is your weirdest interview experience as a creative? Please share with us below.
