If you were an animal...

there comes a day when you start with job searching. For most people a part called job interview is the most unpleasant event. So it's smart to prepare for that matter (or in my case ask the Internet what bad things can happen to me there). Many stories tell us what are frequently asked questions on the interview. 
I've seen this one many times, also heard of it in Sociology class, so it's the most interesting to me:

- if you were an animal, what would you be?

it's quite simple, but it get's you thinking... about pets you own, ones you would like to or about what kind of ''personality'' does an animal have? It's also good to keep in mind about how that animal obeys and what are their motivators. 
Your future boss has some kind of secret intention to see under your skin, what do you hide underneath your good behavour? ^^

Many of my class mates said that they would be a dog, because of course it's loyal and kind. Some of them said a lion, because it's a king of the jungle with great hair :)  I'm not sure I would be the queen of the interview after that answer. 

Anyway, I thought about a bird, because it's small and somehow powerful with it's wings, I could go away any day I please and be able to smile down at people and much more (if you know what I mean) ..oops, maybe not most suitable answer.

But then I thought, what about a cat. Guess not, it's too lazy, too hypocritical and many other bad news. I am more cat than dog person in fact, we do have two cats at home but sometimes they can be really moody. That was my opinion until today, when I saw a picture on my Facebook feed:

Seems we can find a lot of positive in their lifestyle. Those are the rules I could definitely live by, we all should! And if I don't get the job, I can still be a cat lady and purr my life away :)

What about you - which animal are you? Would you say any different, if you were in an interview?

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I would be a dog because it's the most easily excited and almost everyone is happy to have it around.

  2. Oh I'd have to be a cat for sure. Lounging around and sleeping without a care in the world. Paradise! Ok that might get a little boring after a while. Maybe a dolphin would be a good choice - swimming the endless seas. Gotta watch out for sharks though. Their bite can be hella painful.

  3. meow....I definitely would be a cat....
