When most of us prepare for an interview, we have prepared answers to common questions like where you see yourself in five years, or examples of when you have displayed leadership skills.

But watch out: there’s a new type of question being asked these days.

It's becoming more frequent for interviewers to ask occasional off-the-wall questions as part of the process. David Kennedy reported in an article in The Globe and Mail that virtually every industry from tech to retail in Canada is employing this technique in their interview repertoire.

The rationale for these rather weird questions is to judge the applicant’s ability to think on his or her feet, to be creative, to perhaps display a sense a humour, and to show that an unexpected question doesn’t throw the prospective employee off guard.
