Oddball Interview Questions
Sure, we're all used to hearing about what questions to expect on an interview. We even have books like More Best Answers to the 201 Most Frequently Asked Interview Questions and The 250 Job Interview Questions You'll Most Likely Be Asked and the Questions That Will Get You Hired! that address commonly asked questions in an interview setting. But what about those totally off-the-wall questions that no reasonable person could ever expect, such as "If you were a brick in the wall, which brick would you be and why?" I mean, how would YOU answer that question? (Believe it or not, ladies and gentlemen, that is a REAL interview question asked by Nestle USA!). Well, thankfully, the good folks at Glassdoor.com have compiled a list of the Top 25 Oddball Interview Questions of 2009. Check it out!
I guess this would be a good time to introduce Glassdoor! We recently established a partnership with Glassdoor that allows our library users to access company salaries, reviews, and interviews for over 70,000 employers, posted anonymously by employees. If you find that you can't access information on the website, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a username and password for the Drexel community that should give you access to everything.
