Hey everybody, how are you doing?
I'm still looking for a job. I actually can't believe it takes that long but ok. That's how it is... Meanwhile here's another one of my stories...
First of all, to my background, I've got a phd in (medical) physics and I speak several languages such as German, English, French, Spanish and also Mandarin Chinese which is also my second mother tongue.
Anyway, I went to a job interview. The guy that interviewed me was pretty young and he apparently had never done anything like that before, as he was very confusing and going back and forth with his questions. At one point we talked about the company's locations which is about everywhere in the world, when I mention that I speak Chinese as well. And this is his exact quote:
Well, that's good... but it's also bad... because if we talk to the Chinese, they might only want to talk to you but I'm the boss and they are supposed to talk to me.
Then he also added that he gets head aches from talking English in America because his English is so bad.
Now, what am I supposed to say to that?! Thanks for being honest. I'm speechless...
