I told Rodney Dangerfield a joke once and he laughed and said, “Good one, kid.” I don’t even remember what I said. I just recall he looked over during a break in the outdoor movie shoot we were on and acknowledged my attempt at humor.

Humor can be risky, which is why not everyone uses it. But those who excel at it usually have a crowd around them or have a reputation for being fun. Is the job interview a place to let potential employers know how funny you are? Can humor be an effective interviewing tool?

Without a doubt, the answer is, it depends.  Read more about this in my most recent AOL article.
