Prepare to be questioned
Posted 3/5/2013 9:17:00 AM

Job interviews used to be pretty basic. The interviewer would look at your resume, ask you about your strengths and weaknesses, then want to know when you can start. Well, maybe not quite THAT basic, but still - you could pretty well prepare in advance and feel confident you'd be able to handle the questions that came your way.

Nowadays, some interviewers are getting subtly psychological with the interview process, throwing curveball questions that have no right or wrong answer. Theoretically this process gives them a chance to evaluate how you might handle a difficult, unexpected situation. In reality, I'm not sure that asking someone, 'What state in the U.S. would you get rid of?", will accomplish anything more than getting you to reveal a location where you might have had a bad vacation!

But, if they're asking, we have to be prepared to answer, whether the questions make sense to us ...
