Preparing for an Interview
Intellectual Answers
Go Through' it.

Question 1: 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 2: 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 3: Interviewer (to a student girl candidate) - What is one
morning you woke up found that you were pregnant.

Girl - I will be very excited and take an off, to celebrate with my

Normally an unmarried girl will be shocked to hear this, but she
managed it well. Why I should think it in the wrong way, she said later when

Question 4: Interviewer: He ordered a cup of coffee for the candidate.
Coffee arrived kept before the candidate, then he asked what is before

Candidate: Instantly replied "Tea"

He got selected.

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

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

Alphabet "T" was before Alphabet "U"

Question 5: Where Lord Rama would have celebrated his "First Diwali"?
People will start thinking of Ayodya, Mitila [Janaki's place], Lanka

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 6: The interviewer asked to 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 told that this was the central point at the table. Interviewer
asked how did u get to know that this being the central point of this
table, then he answers quickly that sir u r not likely to ask any more
question, as it was the last question that u promised to ask.

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

This is What Interviewer expects from the Interviewee.

Arrive 10 to 15 minutes early before your interview. Don't take any chances that you might be even one minute late. If necessary, arrive 30 minutes early and wait outside.

What a general category candidate will feel when he/she is not selected even after answering all the questions to the satisfaction of interviewer because a quota candidate has to be selected?
