Having some trouble recruiting. Want to improve my strategy. I'm a jokester but in interviews I shut that down because I'm scared I'll get dinged for being unprofessional. But I'm getting dinged anyway.. probably for being too nervous/not personable enough if I had to guess.
When I say cracking jokes I mean responding to "why do you want to work here?" with "the city of  needs me... I'm Batman" in the Batman voice.
Or if someone asks a technical that I don't know the answer to, saying "Who do you think I am... Mario Freaking Einstein or something?" instead of "I don't know the answer to that question".
I figure doing these interviews can't be incredibly interesting for professionals... do you want the analyst interviewing you to think that you're funny?
