Form Practice Story 2
Yolanda Martinez is a hiring manager for a large bank in San Francisco. She is interviewing candidates for a position as a branch manager. She received 300 resumes for this position. Most of these resumes were not very good. Some had words spelled wrong and missing punctuation. Some of the applicants didn't have enough experience. She found 20 resumes that seemed qualified enough to bring in for an interview. She scheduled 5 interviews every day for four days. The interviews were very tiring. By the end of the last day, she had found a couple of candidates that were OK, but no one stood out as a really good choice. Her last interview was with Victoria Steele. Victoria had gone to Drake University, which is a very good school, and she had a bachelor's degree in finance and a master's degree in management. Yolanda was curious though why Victoria hadn't gotten a job already since she graduated six months ago.
When Victoria arrived, she was dressed very professionally and carried a nice leather briefcase. She had a good firm handshake and seemed pleasant and confident. Yolanda asked Victoria to describe her background and her philosophy of management. Victoria gave great answers. Yolanda was really puzzled why no one else had hired this fabulous employee. Yolanda asked, "So, what would you say is your biggest weakness?'
Victoria replied, "My biggest weakness is definitely honesty."
Yolanda was surprised. "I don't think honesty is a weakness." she replied.
Victoria looked at her and said, "I really don't give a darn what you think."
