Inappropriate suggestion?

by Peggy
(San Francisco, CA)

It's not really hilarious but thinking back, I really don't know why I said that to my interviewer, maybe I was trying to stand out.


Back in 2006, I was interviewing for an assistant position in a wholesale business furniture company. The interview went well, and just as I was shaking hands with the interviewer after the interview was done, I mentioned something like "Hey, I noticed that you don't really have my nationality working here... Maybe you should hire me so you'll have one!" She smiled and I didn't feel there's anything wrong.

I have a friend working there and she later told me the interviewer was really taken aback, and said that I was really bold (not really in a good way) to mention racial stuff like this. I guess I still amazed her a bit because I got an offer later. I didn't take it though because I got a better offer elsewhere.

That's still a funny story to tell since you ended up getting the job! Although most would fine it inappropriate, she probably thought you had real strength and courage. Plus, these days more employers are seeking to expand their multiculturalism in the workplace.
