There are moves you can pull in an interview that will do one of two things: make you look like a ballsy hire or make you look like a complete dickhead. But if you’re not standing out, you might as well just shred up that resume you brought in and go home with your tail between your legs.
But this guy. This fuckin’ guy. The stones on him. There’s shooting for the moon, and then there’s this guy who asked his interviewer out for drinks before even hearing back about the job.
This was pulled from Katarina Batina, who apparently interviewed him. She hashtagged #shemightbegay so I’m going to go out on a limb and say that this didn’t work out well for our boy. But nevermind the fact that what he did was a move that most can’t pull off, I wholeheartedly do not approve of Katarina putting this dude on blast. It’s bad enough that he’s scraping by without a job, but to tweet out his hail mary for the world to see? Have some chill, lady. This isn’t the quarterback of an SEC school dipping into your DMs with a c-shot. This is just a dude who nicely asked you for drinks.
She took it one step further, too, after presumably receiving some blowback.
Nothing I enjoy more than having straight white men tell me what I get to define as harassment. #progress

Now, as a straight white male (#bornthisway), I’m not going to pass my judgment on whether or not this is harassment. Butttttttttt, like, is it actually? “I enjoyed meeting you,” doesn’t exactly sound like hate speech or stepping over the line. But hey, just a straight white male over here doing straight white male things. .
