Bitter Vid: Great Example of How NOT to Get the Job

A classic vid from Ben Schwartz before he was discovered by Showtime’s House of Lies. Anywho, the point is, don’t model your resume drafting or interviewing style after Mr. Schwartz’s character.

    Painfully funny. And let me stress the painful part.

      But on further thought, how did this guy even get an interview when the interviewer clearly knew he and his resume were bogus?

    He reminds me of the guy from the Social Network, right? The CFO – whatever his name was?

    I call BS on him being “discovered” on House of Lies—he had already been playing Jean-Ralphio on Parks & Recreation for over a year before House of Lies even piloted.

    Baah ha ha. Being “discovered” by Parks & Rec is like saying Schwartz was discovered by his own Vimeo channel. Such a carbon copy of The Office.
