One of the things about the Christmas Holiday period is that there are usually some good "Best Of...." or "Worst Of..." type programs on TV. One program in particular caught my attention which was about mistakes that took place on various different TV news channels.
I missed this when it actually happened last year but there was a case of someone ending up being interviewed live on BBC 24 News. The only problem was that he was only at the BBC that day because he was there for a job interview!
Apparently there were two people in reception called "Guy" and when a member of staff went down to reception and said "is Guy here" and he put his hand up.
What the member of staff didn't know was that this was "Guy Goma" and not "Guy Kewney" who was there to talk about court case between the Apple Computer Company and the Apple Music Label.
The look on his face in the interview is quite something!
I wonder how many Recruiters have found themselves in a similar position when they have the wrong person or wrong CV? I'd love to know how you managed to get out of the situation?
