Unexpected interview questions

  • "You have two teleportation devices—where do you place them and why?" is an entertaining question that helps to understand how a candidate thinks logically and imaginatively.
  • "If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring?" This question examines a candidates ingenuity.
  • "How many windows are there in NYC?" tests the ability to problem-solve.

Both the interviewer and the candidate should feel fully in the moment to bring out the best dialogue.

Create an effective presentation of who you are and what you offer. Focus on your actual skills that go beyond your resumé.

Nothing is more impressive than arriving at an interview and being prepared and well informed about the company - its values, goals, history, current events, and who you might be meeting with.
