给面试官跪了奇葩的面试问题  来源:搜狐教育  作者:  2015-09-11    

  In order to scout out the top talent, businesses are now throwing curveball questions during the interview process. Asking about seemingly unrelated topics can help give a company a wider snapshot into the person and their life.


  And how candidates answer these questions can provide the interviewer with a bit of insight into how their mind works.


  Business brains, recruiters and top career experts from around the country have put together the most bizarre questions that have been asked in real interviews - and how to handle them if one is thrown your way.


  1. How many traffic lights are there in London?


  This is essentially a brainteaser to test how you would think through tough questions, said James Reed, author of Why You? 101 Interview Questions You’ll Never Fear Again.


  Reassure yourself that no one is going to have the correct answer to the question. It is highly impossible unless you have a comprehensive knowledge of UK traffic lights.


  Take a breath to gather your thoughts and respond with: "I couldn’t give you an exact number, obviously, but I could make a guess by trying to estimate the number of traffic lights in a square mile based on my personal experience and then taking a shot at the total size of London in square miles".’


  2. How would you interject a fight between Batman and Superman?


  Lee Biggins, founder of CV-Library, said this super hero question may be asked in order to demonstrate how the candidate handles conflict.


  “Try to keep it relevant to the job role – you’re not being asked how you would handle a scuffle in the pub on a Friday night,” he said. 'Focus on the positive attributes of both parties and how you could encourage them to work well together.'


  3. What can you make from this piece of paper?


  “This is an opportunity for the interviewer to see how creative you are, whilst working under pressure,” said Penny de Valk. “If you manage to make an origami swan, fantastic! If, like most, you don’t have such skills – it’s the chance to see what you can create on the spot."


  "If you’re applying for a role where one of your main responsibilities is writing, for example a journalist, then you could say that you could make a multitude of stories from that one piece of paper without the help of origami."


  "It’s better to do this than spend half an hour folding it into intricate shapes and feeling totally out of your comfort zone."


  4. If we shrunk you to the size of a pencil and put you in a blender, how would you try to get out?


  Careers writer Paul MacKenzie-Cummins said this question is designed to reveal whether a candidate is flustered by unexpected problems.


  "Candidates should bear in mind that there is no right or wrong answer to this – it’s all down to interpretation," he said. "However, candidates should try to answer the question as best as possible, as this reveals that they are willing to solve an issue they are unfamiliar with."
