As an Interviewer, I ask a lot of questions. And I get a lot of answers too. Some are brilliant while others are so dumb (talking about answers not people) that you feel like -
|'I don't want to live on this planet anymore!'|
Interviewers, usually, aren't dumb most of the times. ;) We too have our confusing moments!
However, whatever questions we ask, we have a reason. Even when we ask standard questions to which most candidates have already mugged up the answer, we have a hidden agenda ;)
Sometimes we slightly twist the questions at other times we ask the same old traditional questions. But when we ask traditional questions, we are looking for an Innovative answer.
One of my favorite questions is 'Why do you wish to join Samsung?'. According to me, it's one of the top 5 most important questions in the interview. We are looking for a candidate who is passionate about working with the organization, someone who is excited at the prospect of joining one of the most Innovative companies in the world today.
Some of the most common (and boring & dumb) answers are:
- Samsung is a brand
- Samsung is leader in Mobilephones
- Package is one of the best
- Its a Innovative Company
- Its offering a profile which I like
- Job Location is near to my hometown
- Its a Multinational Corporation.
- Its my dream job.
