4 Recruiting Humor Videos You Should Bookmark Right Now

October 19, 2017

If your job (or perhaps everything on the news) is giving you heart palpitations these days, we feel you.

And it’s in moments like these that one thing can really help you de-stress: a good laugh.

That’s why we put together some of our favorite recruiting humor videos you can always turn to when you need to lighten the mood (say when a candidate takes a competing offer or your hiring manager says they really don’t need interview training.)

Take a look:

1. Recruiter Dad loves his job so much he just can’t turn off the recruiting mindset (even with his kid)

Sometimes, it’s hard to get out of the recruiting mindset - especially when you love your job as much as many recruiters do. Maybe you've caught yourself doing recruiter-y things outside of work -- like looking for referrals around every corner or maybe even testing how your newborn’s name will look on a resume. If that's true, this video -- Recruiter Dad -- is for you.

2. Every recruiter has used at least one of the lines in S*** Recruiters Say (and it’s ok to laugh about it)

When you’re contacting and interviewing candidates day in and day out, it’s understandable that the same phrases might get repeated (we all do this in our jobs). And, you’ll likely find one of these lines in S** Recruiters Say.  

And if you have a few extra minutes, don’t miss the creator’s equally good videos about the S*** Hiring managers and Candidates say.

3. And then there’s this video of things candidates say (and your inner recruiter translation of what that actually means) 

Every recruiter and hiring manager knows the feeling of translating a candidate’s words into their true meanings in your own head—this hilarious video just does the work for you.

4. Meet some of the most out there candidates recruiters have had to deal with in The Interview

We asked recruiters for their wildest interview stories and collected the best ones that happened in real life. The candidates you’ll meet in this video include the Overachiever, who immediately proclaims, “Whatever you’re looking for, you just found it.” There’s the Embellisher, who apparently commuted from Mumbai to Yale for college. And then there’s the Eccentric, who literally got into a fistfight on his way to the interview—and has no idea why that’s weird. (Of course, we also appreciated the Game of Thrones reference.)

We hope these videos gave you a chuckle!
