In order to bring on creative people who think outside of the box, small companies are thinking of odd, new ways to find the best talent.
Instead of implementing the age-old interview questions for their candidates, some small businesses have taken to asking odd-ball questions such as, “If you were shrunk to the size of a pencil and put in a blender, how would you get out?” instead of the standard “Where do you see yourself in five years?”
Most likely, companies have started implementing these seemingly odd-ball questions to get a feel for how prospective employees would use their problem solving to get themselves out of a tough situation. For 20-somethings entering the job market, competition is at an all-time high and innovative thinking is almost a must.
