 Has  anyone  said  auquarium  hobby  in  their  interview?
 usually  most  of  the  candidates  say  reading  books,  listening  to  music,  playing___(game/sport)etc.  The  immediate  question  will  be  on  that  hobby,  like  what  sort  of  books  do  you  read?  Whose  music  do  you  listen  to?  
 
 what  are  the  impressive  sentences  that  we  should  tell  about  our  hobby?
 what  i  thought  is  if  we  were  asked  details,  we  could  speak  freely  na.
 
 add  your  views  on  probable  positive  and  negative  points  of  mentioning  our  hobby  in  interviews.

 I  mentioned  once  to  my  China  n  Japan  Clients  and  they  really  appreciated  it.  
 
 Turn  out  that  they  too  are  aquarists.  and  kept  many  tanks  and  species  at  home..
 
 Need  less  to  say,  after  we  patched  up  with  common  hobby,  my  job  became  very  very  easy  and  fun..
 Which  is  otherwise  is  very  difficult..

 I  have  also  mentioned  it  as  my  hobby.  The  interviewer  was  an  hardcore  environmentalist  (not  as  much  as  me  though  Wink  )  and  asked  me  -  "is  it  good  to  waste  water  during  water  changes  in  a  country  where  there  is  shortage  of  water?"
 I  however  do  water  change  everyday  and  use  the  water  from  the  tank  in  cleaning  toilets/bathrooms  and  watering  plants,  so  that  saved  me  there!

 Chuckle   Chuckle  Good  point  Garothmaan   ROFL  but  sometimes  it  helps  to  break  the  ice  between  parties..
 
 Infact  you  can  play  it  in  your  favour,  I  was  in  Mumbai  and  took  my  clients  to  Hotel  Sahara  star  (oppo  to  Mumbai  Domestic  terminal)  and  they  have  a  huge  marine  tank.  Infact  they  have  their  guests  sitting  all  around  the  tank  and  got  my  deal  signed  very  quickly.   Chuckle  
 
 JD,  marine  tank  and  spicy  Indian  food  did  the  trick  for  me..  Thumb Up

 I  have  mentioned  aquariums  as  my  hobby  in  interviews.  Panel  got  suitably  surprised  and  asked  questions  about  it.  Every  panel  has  a  fixed  period  of  time  for  conducting  interview  and  few  precious  minutes  are  invested  in  a  topic  about  which  you  know  thoroughly,  imo,  its  a  good  bargain.  Very Happy  
 
   Very Happy

 Don't  be  a  shy  Aquarist.  Stand  up  for  your  hobby.
 Be  well  versed,  if  the  interviewer  knows  anything  about  fishkeeping  and  you  flounder...  think  about  it  !
 
 Many  years  ago  I  think  it  was  2000  one  guy  went  to  IBM  and  mentioned  about  planted  tanks  to  the  interviewer.
 The  best  part  was  that  both  knew  me,  the  interviewee  knew  me  less  than  the  interviewer.  
 Both  did  not  know  that  about  each  other.
 They  came  to  a  impasse,  the  fellow  quoted  me  to  stress  the  point  he  was  making  about  planted  aquariums.
 He  was  wrong  btw.
 Then  came  about  a  telephone  call  to  me  right  in  the  middle  of  the  interview  !
 
 Me  and  the  boss  ended  up  having  a  nice  laugh  later  !

 Most  importantly,  was  the  interviewee  hired?  There  is  possibly  a  tip  there  for  all  potential  IBM  (Bangalore?)  candidates  in  the  future  Innocent
