One way for a brand to create awareness is with a surprising new product that gets people talking. Some people probably remember exactly where they were the day they found out Taco Bell’s Doritos Locos Taco would be a thing, such was the excitement the chip-encrusted foodstuff generated. This urge to innovate, however, also renders companies ripe for parody. If they’re so eager to make a product that qualifies as “unbelievable” within a rigidly define area of safety, just imagine what lies beyond those boundaries. Oh wait, you don’t have to—someone’s already done it.

What’s the biggest mistake you’ve ever made (or observed) in a job interview?

The other day we wrote about 6 ways to secretly sabotage your job interview, and then we asked Facebook fans about the biggest interview mistakes they’ve ever seen. Here’s what they had to say: 
  • "Not having a convincing answer to what my strengths were." -Prashanth Challapalli
  • "When the interviewee doesn’t have a career path or salary expectation (expressing their own worth) is a turn off." - Garrett Fookes
  • "Not sending a thank you note after the interview…rookie mistake!" - The Forum: Stories That Create
  • "At the end when they say "do you have any questions" I said no. This one is a biggie." - Kathleen Stetka
  • "Sell myself short." - Milly Darby

Here, a few more. What’s the biggest interview mistake you’ve ever seen?
