All of us have sat through an interview at least once in our lives, expecting to be grilled. But how does it feel to be sitting on the other side of the table? How do interviewers react to crumpled CVs, rubber chappals and a casual attitude?

Viacom’s editorial head Ravina Raval, who has interviewed many for various positions across the country, describes what it is like to interview today’s generation. Her rant on Twitter is hilarious, but you might want to take down notes.

1. Times are hard and you gotta hustle:

2. First impression IS the last impression:

3. Spare me the details, please!

4. Heard of spell check?

5. Not your agony aunt

6. Are you mixing up your interview with last week’s Tinder date?

7. Repeat after me: The interviewer is not your bro

8. No, online stalking is not a skill you can put on your resume

9. You should only be highly qualified, not high

10. Glad you didn’t ask for a martini ‘shaken, not stirred’
