Funny Saturday Night Live Interview Sketches

🎭 Let’s face it, recruiting and interviewing can be wonky and cringe-worthy sometimes. Saturday Night Live agrees.

🀣 SNL has delivered some funny sketches over the years, specifically centered around the interviewing process.

πŸ‘‰ Here are some of those examples:

1. Evil Boss Interview with Pierce Brosnan & Will Ferrell
😈 So what if he takes his third-rate magazine publication as serious as his ability to wield a trident? πŸ”±

2. The Job Interview with RegΓ©-Jean Page and Beck Bennett
πŸ’© An ad agency that does nothing but lousy brand spec work = a lousy business model…maybe? I’ve seen crazier things out there (see NFTs). πŸ€ͺ

3. Crazy Boss Job Interview with Steve Buscemi and Chris Kattan
πŸ€ͺ At least Steve provides honest feedback. πŸ™

4. Mr. Dave’s Strange Job Interview with Jeff Goldblum and Tim Meadows
πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ His preference for the 4th of July, being super good at stuff and jet skis? Solid candidacy! 🌊

5. Word Association with Eddie Murphy & Chevy Chase
πŸ₯‡Probably the most classic of the bunch. Interview questions can get sticky sometimes.❓

6. Centaur Job Interview with Christopher Walken & Chris Parnell
πŸ˜‚ Absurdity at its best. β€œCan I ride you?β€πŸ΄
