Sunday is a day to relax. Isn’t it? But why can we not just add a touch of learning to it? Well, if you are preparing for job interviews, then definitely you can. Interviews just don’t happen in real time, they happen in movies too! However, they are far more entertaining than any of your company interviews. Take some time off and watch these three distinctly interviews in different movies; which will make you laugh and inspire you at the same time.
You may or may not have been a part of a situation that has been perplexing to interpret. Remember that job interview that left you doubting your fundamentals? Stress interview is an example of an extremely dreaded interview. Imagine yourself facing a panel of interviewers who refuse to talk or smile. It would be confusing downright to the point of being hilarious. The one advice that everyone would have given you to face such interviews is to PREPARE.CareerBuilder tells you how. But first let’s get familiar with a few twisted questions that you might have to face any time in life while giving a job interview.
While regulars are a part of most of the interviews, the twisters are often asked for executive and middle-management positions in jobs like software development, marketing and content writing. Here are a few examples of the questions that are so simple yet so challenging:
1. Other than its obvious purpose what can scissors (productively) be used for?
What they are trying to know: While there is no specific answer to this question, you will be judged and awarded marks for your creativity. That’s the trait they are judging you on: ingenuity.
2. How would you weigh a giraffe/ elephant/ whale?
What they are trying to know: While they won’t ask you to weight one, they need to know whether you have an eye for detail. All that they are judging is your problem-solving ability.
3. If you are given 7 rods and 5 shelves, how will you place them all (just one on one shelf)?
What they are trying to know: You might never know the answer for this one. If you give up, you lose the game. If you try, you might be given some points for not giving up.
