I was interviewed by Canadian Business magazine on how to respond to bizarre interview questions. While out-of-the-box interview questions are nothing new, they do take on new forms to reflect the times.
I’m not convinced that all interviewers have a specific intent and valid expectation of what they hope to get from the question. Typically, bizarre interview questions are inserted into the interview to catch you off guard and see how you respond, test how current you are, or how well you can relate your answer to the job.
The bizarre interview question is an interviewing practice that’s worth being aware of.
