How to Deal With Rude/Asshole/Disrespectful Interviewers?
I recently finished anwhere the interviewer suddenly turned a tad rude when he started asking about the education section on my resume (I'm a non-target), and started asking me "how people from a school like that ever plan on entering an industry reserved for the best of the best" and saying "I don't know about you, but I would start looking for jobs more suited for people like you and that no name school"
This caught me off guard, but I maintained a smile on my face and told him I noted the point, and tried the move the conversation to a different topic. I don't know if I'm overreacting, but this seemed to be a bit rude and targeted. Am I overreacting?
And if so, how would you recommend dealing with asshole interviewers during a live interview. Should I simply maintain a smile, tell them that what they said is a quality point, and try to move the conversation forward or?
Thoughts and help would be appreciated, thank you!
