Does personality matter a lot when getting job?


My recent interview went horrible today and it wasn't about my skillset and experience. Everything went downhill when he asked me personal questions like my hobbies, goals, and interest, even when I gave him a realistic work-appropriate response, he straight up said, "that sounds boring you seem like a more interesting person than that." Like what am i supposed to say?? All my passions and interest are stuff that's too hard to make a career out of like music and video games. I gave him the real answer and he still wasn't interested.


It's just an excuse to not hire you. Places like this either have a poor work-life balance or hate diversity and want a very homogenous group. you lucked out on finding out this early.

Be aware of those people. I worked for a few of those types. It goes south fast. Remember, you're interviewing them as much as they are interviewing you. What kind of people do you want to work for?
