Hints and Tips:
- BE READY. Some questions are thrown at you in purpose to sting – not in a bad way – you, so there’s a possibility that you will not get to answer the questions right. But, whatever happens, never answer I don’t know. If you do — good luck waiting for that phone call.
- HOW YOU THINK. Some (mostly, really) of the questions are trick questions. Plain or unusual, interviewers will ask you to know what your approach to the question is. They have your resume, so they probably know a lot about your academics and job performance from your past employers right now. How you answer is more important than what your answer is.
- CREATIVITY IS KEY. This is most important and something you should be ready for especially if you are applying in a start-up company. Like what they always say, think outside the box.
- Lastly, weird or unusual questions are asked as a ‘tie breaker’ question. Have fun with it, but make sure you make the interviewer remember you.
So when you’re asked to measure the North Pole with Penguins. Think about it. Penguins don’t really live in the North Pole. And ‘North Pole’ isn’t a place. It’s a concept that started with Santa Claus and his toy factory. There’s no pole and no geographical chart to bound the North area. It’s basically a vast place made of ice.
