Brilliant Interview


Think out of the Box.. 6 beautiful HR Questions !!!

Here are some of the typical HR questions asked to find out if the
candidates have "out of box" thinking capability.

Question 1:
"What will you do if I run away with your sister?"

The candidate who was selected answered " I will not get a better
match for my sister than you, sir."

Question 2:
Interviewer (to a student girl candidate) - What if one morning you
woke up found that you were pregnant?

I will be very excited and take a day off, to celebrate with my
husband. (Normally an unmarried girl will be shocked to hear this, but
she managed it well. Why should I think it in the wrong way, she said
later when asked.)

Question 3:
Interviewer: He ordered a cup of coffee for the candidate. Coffee,
arrived and was kept before the candidate, then he asked "What is
before you?"

Candidate: Instantly replied "Tea" and got selected.

(You know how and why did he say "TEA" when he knows very well that
coffee was kept before him?.

Answer: The question was "What is before you U? (-alphabet). Reply was
"TEA" T (- alphabet).

Question 4:
Where Lord Rama would have celebrated his "First Diwali"?

People will start thinking of Ayodya, Mithila [Janaki's place], Lanka etc...

But the logic is, Diwali was a celebrated as a mark of Lord Krishna
Killing Narakasura. In Dusavataar, Krishnavathaar comes after

So, Lord Rama would not have celebrated the Diwali At all!

Question 5:
You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night, it's
raining heavily, when suddenly you pass by a bus stop, and you see
three people waiting for a bus:

An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
An old friend who once saved your life.
The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.

Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing very well that
there could only be one passenger in your car?

This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of
a job application.

* You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and
thus you should save her first; * or you could take the old friend
because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance
to ! pay him back. *

However, you may never be able to find your perfect mate again...

The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble
coming up with his answer. Guess what was his answer?

He simply answered:
"I would give the car keys to my Old friend and let him take the lady
to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the
partner of my dreams."

Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn thought
limitations. Never forget to "Think Outside of the Box."

Question 6:
The interviewer asked the candidate "This is your last question of the
interview. Please tell me the exact position of the center of this
table where u have kept your files."

Candidate confidently put one of his finger at some point at the table
and said that this was the central point at the table. Interviewer
asked "how did you decide that this is the central point of this
table?", then he answers quickly that "Sir you are not supposed to ask
any more question, as it was the last question as you promised...

And hence, he was selected as because of his quick-wittedness.

This is what Interviewer expects from the Interviewee. ....
