Outline: When it comes to hiring, more employers are going beyond standard questions such as asking candidates to list their biggest strengths and weaknesses. Job applicants need to be prepared to answer a range of wacky interview questions. Sometimes it is hard to figure out what companies look for in a job applicant. In this series of articles we are going to share with you some of the weirdest job interview questions ever made!

Just imagine this: you’re in a serious job interview and so far so good – things are going quite well. Then, out of nowhere, the interviewer asks you a question like this: “If you could only choose one song to play every time you walked into a room for the rest of your life, what would it be?” I mean… Seriously!? One is already confused and fearful that some life experiences may not be desired by the company and then also has to take up with this!?

Nevertheless, no matter how weird a question seems to be, just take a deep breath and give your best shot. Maybe the interviewer is just messing with you, but chances are the company is trying to see how you respond under pressure and how you react to unexpected challenges. This article has a first set of crazy questions made during job interviews, so make sure to stay tuned for more!
