What was your worst job interview? A few years back I went to an interview for a global brand marketing role at Unilever and spent 15 minutes wondering why the interviewer was so interested in my internet skills, only to find out I was being interviewed for an internet manager role. HR had sent me to the wrong interview.

What animal best reflects your personality and why? I think I'm like a fox or maybe a lion, because I am wily when I need to be and I'm very competitive. But I'm also very loyal to my friends and family.
