London job seeker makes a bad first impression on the Tube
Is it advisable to make a bad first impression and then set about undoing it? We ask in light of the story of the man on the London Underground. Last Mondy, a passenger as blocking his way. Our hero did as the mild-mannered Englishman must: he shoved the blocker out the way and told him to eff-off.
He then continued on his journey for an interview as Python Developer at Forward Partners.
There he met Matt Buckland, Head of Talent and Recruiting at Forward Partners.
Or, rather, he met him again. Because Mr Buckland was the man our job seeker had barged and sworn at.
“It was totally awkward,” Buckland tells the BBC. “So I approached it by asking him if he’d had a good commute that morning. We laughed it off and in a very British way I somehow ended up apologising”.
