Interviewing Curveball

With baseball season in full swing and the hometown team currently sitting #1 in the American League West (Go Astros!), I got to thinking – in baseball, you have a fastball, the slider, a changeup… and then there’s the always tricky curveball. But what happens when you are thrown a curveball in everyday life? Better yet, what happens when you have a curveball thrown at you during an interview? recently published the “Top 10 Oddball Interview Questions of 2015.” How would you answer “Who would win in a fight between Spiderman and Batman”? Or “Describe the color yellow to someone who is blind”.  Companies are starting to become more adventurous and creative when it comes to interviewing, recruiting and retaining top-tier candidates. Are you someone who can think on their toes?

While we try our hardest to prepare for an interview by researching the company, reading reviews and asking friends and family if they have any suggestions, also remember to keep an eye out for a curveball that can be thrown your way.
