Millenial job seeker goes nuclear after not getting summer job

Wow--wouldn't you love to work with this person in your office?
The reality is anyone 20 minutes late for an interview is toast, regardless of a reason, short of an automobile accident or illness.

An Oberlin student; from personal experience, this attitude is typical.

Based on her reaction, I'd say that her prospective employer is heaving a sigh of relief over having dodged a bullet with that PITA.

Her F.B. rant is particularly entertaining. She will find it hard to get any employment as a result.

Actually if I was considering hiring her I would be as concerned about her comment that she is going to change the world as I would about the rest of it. I think that tells more about her ego and personality than the clothes and perhaps more than the angry diatribe.

What you post on the internet is there FOREVER and she will likely have this inccident come back to haunt her. Nobody wants to hire a job candidate whose first instinct when angry is to post screed against their employer or potential employer all over social media.

I thought the outfit was fine...but being late would have been the end for me.

I've actually told people "don't bother" when told they were running late for an interview. There are exceptions, but punctuality in very important for an interview. A meeting at 9:00 means that you are READY to meet at 9, not arriving at 9

I had a boss once that would say all the time "if you're not 15 minutes early, you're late".

Same here. If you can't make it on time for something as important as a job interview, it's a good indicator to me that you'll have trouble showing up on time for the more mundane things in life, like work.

Hope and change.

Hopefully, change into an outfit where the handbag at least matches the shoes.

I see nothing wrong with the outfit (the blue handbag is a lively accent piece - actually fairly fashionable, IMHO).

Being late for an interview however? I can't even count how many hours I've spent in a coffee shop next to an interview location waiting to walk over and arrive exactly 15 mins early. There's some things you simply CAN'T be late for - I'd think nothing of arriving in the area of my interview an hour early - longer if the distance or logistical obstacles (planes/trains/automobiles, etc.) were significant.

The real story is that a woman couldn't get a job in a tech firm.

I've been told to be 3-5 minutes early to any interview. Less than that risks being late or doesn't send the right message, but earlier than that can be an inconvenience to the interviewer.

I have showed up much earlier, but I tell the receptionist that I am indeed early.

It's a man's fault, so therefore all men hate women and will not give them a chance.

WHY DO YOU HATE WOMEN?!?!?!?!?!?

I think plp started a thread about guys who are overly concerned with fashion recently. Maybe you'd feel right at home there.
