A few words with contest winner Jessica Mincey of Warner Robins, GA

What do you do for a living? I am a senior Middle Grades Education Major at Georgia Southern University by day and a team member at Einstein Bagel Bros by night.

Has your sense of humor ever helped you on the job? Yes! Sometimes you get a customer who is having such a bad day that they bring that bad day to you.  I simply start telling jokes and making things funny so they start to forget about the negative!

Ever used humor in a job search? Yes! While interviewing for my current job, they asked me why I should be hired.  I told them “I’m like Spiderman! He’s so cool.  He helps people without needing recognition.”  Stunned by the response, they burst out laughing and hired me on the spot.

What’s your best advice for jobseekers? Be YOURSELF! At the end of the day, if they hire someone who you put on your resume as you instead of the true you, it will only turn out horrible.

What do you find funny and not funny about job search? I found it humorous that I would apply for like 80 jobs just to get one call.  What I did not find funny is the fact that there aren’t many jobs that will hire someone with 3/4 of a college degree.
