>go on job interviews (non-/lit/ jobs)
>sometimes get asked about favorite hobby
>say reading
>ask me what my favorite book is
>don't really have a single favorite book
>generally say Notes from Underground

Is this unwise, since the book is about a huge misanthropic asshole?
>>
First of all - congratulations on your wonderful picrelated choices, nowocioto.
What do the interviewers generally say after such a remark, considering the fact that they probably have not even heard of Notes from the Underground?
>>
No, just make sure that when the interview goes to shake your hand you shouldercheck him into his office door, to demonstrate that you aren't a pussy-ass faggot like the protagonist. Bosses like outgoing employees.

Some say they've read it, others just remark that they haven't heard of it.

>pretending like job interviews ask you about your hobbies to make this convoluted of a shit post
le upvote reddit suxxx
>>
The interviewer probably doesn't care about what you read. If he thinks reading is a hobby that relates with the abilities required for the job, then he'll be happy.

Unless you say something really stupid like Mein Kampf or Twilight...
>>
It is a huge mistake. Pick a book from the Reddit top 10 and they will smile and say "ahh great taste anon!! I remember reading that in highschool! I loved it!! xDD

Lol this

I said I like Dostoevsky in an interview and she hadn't heard of him, got the job

>says lolita is my favourite
>being rejected every tiem

>>7556344
Haha too funny
>>
I've never been asked what my favorite book is in a job interview .. but that begs the question

would saying War and Peace or Crime and Punishment be a better idea than Gravity's Rainbow or Women and Men?
>>
>>7556553
If it begs the question, isn't the answer obvious?

A: GR, Ulysses, IJ :^)
>>
>implying any job interviewers even know what Notes from the Underground is about

To respond to your question, though, it probably is unwise. I always play it safe and say Anna Karenina.
>>
>>7556553
War and Peace is probably the safest bet there is.
