Study reveals that jobseekers have been startled by weird questionsAugust 21st, 2012 - 8:15 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
New York, Aug 21 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Forty percent of the jobseekers have been asked a weird question during their job interview. This is according to a study that has been conducted by a recruiting firm.
The research shows that many job seekers have failed to prepare for job interviews adequately since they are working so hard at making a first impression. The research shows that jobseekers have been asked questions such as how one can get an elephant in to a fridge. Two out of five people looking for a job worked so hard on how they were going to make the best first impression while the other three researched on interview questions that they were likely going to be asked during their job interview.
The recruitment firm known as Michael Page found out that weird questions stress a lot of job seekers but they are becoming very common in job interviews. Michael Page’s Dean Ball said that it is important that those who are going for job interviews prepare for job interviews since their getting the jobs greatly depends on them being able to answer the difficult questions.
He further said that the weird questions are a way of bringing in light hearted moments to the mostly tense interview environment and it is therefore important that i9nterviewees take this chance to show their creativity.
