There are lots of jobs available for writers at tech companies — blogging, marketing, PR, etc. If you are considering getting a job at one of these companies, you’d better be prepared to answer some ridiculous questions during the interview.
Information Week has outlined 16 stupid questions that different tech companies ask during interviews. For example, Apple asks, ”If you were a pizza delivery man, how would you benefit from scissors?” and Airbnb asks “How lucky are you and why?.”
Here is more from Information Week:
“Can you instruct someone how to make an origami ‘cootie catcher’ with just words?” — LivingSocial, Consumer Advocate interview.
Only if we speak the same language.
Sure. I’d say, “Search for the phrase ‘how to make a cootie catcher.’”
