话说,自从奥巴马从美国总统的位置上退休下来之后,感觉就一直在度假,到各地放飞自我。



不时向大家秀秀自己结实的肌肉,50多岁了,帅气地去划水、冲浪,在各国海滩上留下自己矫健的身姿。



或者放松放松,约上几个老伙伴,一起打打高尔夫,享受悠闲的下午时光。


然而,一直这样游山玩水也不行啊,没有经济收入,怎么维持一大家子的生活?


就比如吧,大女儿 Malia 2017年就要去哈佛读大学了,这一大笔学费需要操心吧?



小女儿Sasha在华盛顿名校中学Sidwell Friends School,学费自然不会低。


眼看这一大家流水一般的日常花销,奥巴马也不能一直放飞下去了,也要想着法子,找个工作,赚些钱养家了。


于是嘛,奥巴马上了扣扣熊脱口秀,搞了场模拟面试。


↓奥巴马面试视频↓


模拟面试一开始,扣扣熊(主持人Stephen Colbert的昵称)穿了一身西装,和奥巴马打了个招呼。



然后嘛,调皮的扣扣熊换了身衣服,化身为某家公司的经理,戴了副金丝框眼镜,开玩笑说奥巴马年纪大了,找工作有点难……



奥巴马略带尴尬地笑了笑,然后两人就直接进入面试主题了。


Q1: 拷问过去工作情况


就和任何面试一样,面试官会问问过去一份工作的情况、离职的原因啦。


扣扣熊看了看奥巴马简历,然后嫌弃地说了句:I don't see any promotions for the last eight years.



哎,一听还真是挺悲催的,一份工作干了8年,没有什么晋级,还原地踏步走。


那奥巴马怎么回答的呢?



一听也是啊,都做到美国总统的位置了,还能指望有啥晋升空间呢?


奥巴马此处还不忘秀下恩爱,承认老婆米歇尔在白宫比他更重要。哎呦,这一波狗粮撒得恰到好处呢。(此处应该有掌声!)



Q2:为什么离开上一份工作?


一般情况下,去面试新工作,人家肯定要问你为啥离开上一份工作咯。


于是,扣扣熊就问啦:you say you're not being terminated, but it sounds like you can't stay. Is that true? (你说不是被老东家炒掉的,但你也没法待下去,是吧?)


乍听下来,好像是有点问题哦,干得好好的,怎么就不受老东家待见了呢?留也不是,去也不是?


来看看奥巴马是怎么回答的:



这段超有梗的。


要知道,美国总统可不是一般的工作啊,不是合同到期再续签就可以的。


美国宪法第22条修正案规定了:总统最多只能任2届,也就是说最多只能做满8年。


Q3: 谈谈上份工作取得的成绩!


这绝对是面试中的经典问题啦,HR肯定会拷问你上份工作有什么收获?


扣扣熊当然也不会跳过这题啦,就问奥巴马 Can you tell me about some of your accomplishment?


来来来,要找工作的,换工作的注意了,这题你是不是也不太会回答呢?


那么,你绝对要听听扣扣熊给的建议:



都记住了吧,你得对症下药,先了解下面试公司的情况。


然后嘛,选择一些过往成绩来说,重点谈你这些优势、成绩对未来雇主有什么用,能给他们带去怎样的收益!


奥巴马一脸受用,列举了一些"工作成就"。


哎,人家取得的成绩非一般人能达到了,我等凡人用不上他这套模板了,不过可以听听看嘛。



这里有个梗,奥巴马谈到了一项成绩:促成了美国和古巴50年来,再次建交。


但扣扣熊就教奥巴马,你得说未来雇主想听到的话,建交之类的成就,一般公司都指望不上,毕竟公司没法开展这项业务……


所以让奥巴马把这项成绩说成:能用西班牙语交流(服气,脑袋瓜活!)



Q4:谈谈得过哪些荣誉吧!


你面试是不是也被问过这个呢,真学霸,工作狂人肯定有一堆一堆的证书可以说……


那么,作为美国前总统,奥巴马有拿过哪些"小红花"呢?



Q5:你是怎样的"主管"?


这一题可是面试的经典题目,就是问你的行事风格,工作方式。


来看看扣扣熊给奥巴马出了道啥题目:



此处一语双关,超级有梗。


在英文中fire有两层意思,一是:开枪,另一个是"解雇",扣扣熊问的本意是:你有没有解雇过人?


但奥巴马也很上道,超级会接梗,他这样回答:



注解:海豹第六分队是美国海军1980年创建的一支特种部队,主要职责是海外反恐怖行动,包括解救人质,猎杀恐怖组织头目。


Q6:你善于使用社交软件吗?


这也是面试中,HR的确会问到的问题。生活在现代社会,能够玩转社交媒体是个很大的加分项。


然而扣扣熊在这里问 Do you have any experience with that? like twitter? 这可是大有深意的。



这里是隐射奥巴马的继任者特朗普热衷于"推特治国",很多重大的决策都通过twitter发布,且有时话语前后矛盾。算是一个讽刺梗。


Q7: 你最大的缺点是什么?


这绝对是面试官最喜欢的问题。扣扣熊一本正经地问了奥巴马。



结果呢,奥巴马支支吾吾的,没能给出那种经典的回答。


Q8:谁能给你的品行"背书"?


找工作时候,的确很多公司都需要做背景调查 (reference check)。


特别是外企,一般都有这个程序,在正式发你offer前,会让你交几个业界的人出来,他们会打电话去做背景调查,弄清楚你的能力、人品、资质、性格等。


扣扣熊在这里问的这个问题,类似于这个意思,让奥巴马提供一个能给他"背书"的人。


奥巴马果然是口才超好,而且反应速度超快,找了火鸡做他的背书人。



原因嘛,大家都懂得。每年感恩节期间,按照习俗,美国总统每年都会在感恩节前一天在白宫赦免一只火鸡,使其免于成为感恩节大餐。


而得到总统特赦的"幸运"火鸡,将入住展览馆、游乐园或农场,过起悠闲的退休生活。


所以这里,奥巴马说有一些火鸡欠他人情,能够说明他是个仁慈、善良、品行不错的人。


怎样,这一问一答是不是超有梗,超有料的。



Funny Interview


President Barack Obama is out of a job, but luckily Stephen Colbert was on hand to help him with his interview skills for a hilarious skit on The Late Show on Monday, October 17.


The pretaped segment saw the TV host surprise Obama in the White House, where he put on his persona of "Randy, the Office Manager" to grill the commander in chief about what he wants to do once his eight years of service are up.


Randy scanned POTUS' resume and vowed to give him some tips to help him get employed.


He kicked off the amusing exchange by pointing out that 55 years old is "a tough time to be starting over for a man," before asking him why he didn't have any promotions in his previous job.


"Honestly there wasn't a lot of room for advancement in my last job," Obama replied. "The only one with a more powerful position was my wife."


Randy wanted Obama to explain why he was leaving his role, and struggled with the fact he wasn't being terminated but "he can't stay."


"I'm leaving because it's required by the 22nd amendment of the United States Constitution," explained Obama.


But Randy didn't like his response: "OK, little tip, when you say staying at your job would be unconstitutional, what employers hear is that you stole office supplies."


Obama pushed all the things he'd achieved as president of the United States, from getting health care for millions of people to reopening political relations with Cuba.


He then told Randy about his awards: "I have almost 30 honor degrees and I did get the Nobel Peace Prize," he said.


When asked what that was for, he joked: "To be honest, I still don't know."


Being on a network television program meant Randy had to remind Obama that they couldn't openly endorse either nominee, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.


So instead Randy wrapped up the interview by asking Obama about his "choice of snacks."


"Would you care for an Extra-Fiber Nutrient Bar, which has traveled to more than 100 countries," he asked. "Or this shriveled tangerine, covered in golden retriever hair, filled with bile, that I wouldn't leave alone with the woman I love?"


"I think I'll go with the fiber nutrient bar," said Obama.
