Killer Questions

Pagkatapos mong imemorize ang CV mo, at magpraktis sa harap ng salamin ng tamang anggulo at tamang pagsagot sa mga posibleng tanong sa interbyu habang suot mo ang iyong pamatay looks,, handang-handa ka ng humarap sa interbyu.

Pero paano kung ang intebyuwer na makakaharap mo (tulad ko) ay may misyong basagin ang iyong pagiging prepared ala boy scout-girl scout? Kaya mo kayang magpakita ng kabibuhan? Paano kung sirain ko ang script na inihanda mo kagabi? interbyu

Pasensiya na, ha. Ayoko lang kasing scripted ang mga sagot mo. Gusto kong makita kang nanginginig sa pagpapaliwanag, joke lang. Gusto ko lang makita kung paano ka magbulay-bulay (lalim ba?) at magpaliwanag nang hindi pinapawisan ang iyong noo at ilong.

Eto yung ilang mga pamatay questions na ginagamit ko sa pagsala ng mga aplikante. Kaya mo kayang sagutin?

1. If there’s one section in your CV that must be deleted, what would that be? Why?
2. If you were the interviewer, what would be your first question to an applicant aside from the usual “Tell me about yourself.”
3. Give me an analogy between life and your favorite sport?
4. How would you describe Red to a blind person?
5. Why does a manhole shaped circle?
6. How would you sell a second-hand toothbrush? What would be your marketing strategy?
7. How would you invite tourists to visit Smokey Mountain?
8. Supposed you were hired by this company, what are the bonuses that we can get from you?
9. Which would you choose, a salary increase without promotion or promotion without salary increase?
10.What’s the edge of newly-grads over those experienced applicants?
11. What is the difference between Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science?
12. What do you think is the most important sense organ of the body?
13. What was your biggest mistake?
14. Does advertising mislead the public? Why?
15. Do you believe that marketing creates the need of the society?
16. What is/are wrong notions about your school? Why does the public think that way?
17. Who would you hire, an undergrad with 8 years of job-related experience, a masteral student with 3 years experience but not related to the position he is applying for or a newly-grad magna cum laude?
18. What is/are the difference/differences between a leader and a manager?
19. What is your ideal job?
20. The child is the father to the man. Can you explain that?
21. Is success measurable? How can we gauge it?
22. Please explain the life cycle of a product?
23. What do you think is the greatest invention of man?
24. If you were God in one day, how would you end it?
25. How did the Philippines get its name?
26. If you were to discuss a problem with the President, what would that be and what would be your recommendation?

Ilan lang to sa mga itinatanong ko, hehehe. Ayoko ibigay lahat. Pero hindi rin lang naman ako ang me ganyang istilo. Nang minsang sumalang ako sa interbyu, eto yung tanong sa aken..

Why are polar bears left-handed?

Sasagutin ko sana yun ng, “Pakialam ko. Basta ako right-handed, hehehe” Pero dahil iyun ay interbyu, nag-close-up smile lang ako at nagpabibo ng konti, sabi ko chismis lang yun.. Hehehe. At nagbigay pa ako ng update, sabi ko di pa naprove yun ng mga scientist. Kahit samahan ko pa siya sa North Pole.

    • nasa marketing strategy yan…

      actually, nung biglang maging isa to exercise namin when i was training pa sa kol senterrrr, naipanalo namin yung pagbebenta ng second-hand toothbrush… asteeg.

  1. Question Number 1.

    None. And I don’t want to be in a position where I do not have an option so even if you insist that I should delete a part of my CV, I won’t.

    I made that CV having a precise information, no need to delete anything nor add something. And that is the exact CV that will make me hired.

    Hanggang one lang muna. Kapagod magsagot. Hehe.

  2. ang lupit mo.. bakit may mga ganyang tanong? anong koneksyon niyan sa magiging trabaho ko?

    wooshhh.. sige copy ko to at pag aaralan ko ang mga isasagot ko. hehehe

  3. di na ako magtataka, tinatanong pala talaga yan sa mga interview. lalo na sa call center.. hmmm.. sige pag-aralan ko yan..

    at kailangan kong makipagdiskusyon sa kuya ko bout dyan.. hehehe

      • actually, ala talaga sa koneksyon sa work. yung tinitingnan ko ay kung paano mo i-express yung idea mo… com skills at pagiging analytical, pati na rin decision-making skills at priorities, sama mo na yung IQ at common sense…

  4. nakakatakot ka namang mag interview, kuya. ang ilan sa mga tanong mo, mga popular questions na tinatanong din sa microsoft (why are manholes round, why are polar bears left handed). kung ako tatanungin nitong mga tanong na to, mauunahan siguro ko ng nerbyos at magkakabulol bulol.

    • yung manhole nakuha ko sa math teacher ko noong high school, hehehe. tapos yung sagot ko dun sa interview sa ken tungkol dun sa polar bear, nabasa ko nga sa yahoo. buti na lang natandaan ko, hehehe. Sa People Support nga pala yung tanong ng polar bear,,, di ba galing ka dun?

      • mali pala ko,,, sa sykes nga pala yung interview na yun,,, nalito tuloy ako… ni refer ako dun nung frend ko sa acctg.dun.. wilma gonzaga yung name… nwei,,,salamat sa pagbisita.. at paalala. tumatanda na si kuya…

  5. 1.”The one you are not interested in knowing.”
    2.”Your first question to me.”
    3.”Life is my favorite sport, so there is no need.” next question pls
    4.”Is he blind from birth? or did he get to see first before he became blind?”
    5.”So the manhole cover will not fall through. It is actually for safety purpose.”
    6.”I would get really famous people to use them first”
    7.”Nicely”
    8.”Did i say i was going to accept your offer?”
    9.”Increase in promotion”
    10.”Around 21 years old, give or take a few years.”
    11.(get a calculator, punch some numbers… press equal) “14”
    12.”Common?”
    13.”My last answer”
    14.”Only if they ask for directions”
    15.(taas kamay) “I believe! I believe!”
    16. “Which one?”
    17.”Which one is the girl?”
    18.(get a calculator again, punch some numbers… press equal) “6”
    19.”This one.”
    20.”Is he a preist?”
    21.”Yes. Hire me and i will show you.”
    22.”First mother product and father product get married… then they go into a honeymoon… then after some time baby product comes… he/she grows up… he gets married… the cycle continues”
    23.”Blogs” =P
    24.”I wouldnt”
    25.”Her mother and father went to church and got her baptized”
    26.”This comppany and this interview”

    polars bears are not left-handed… they dont have any. =P

  6. napadaan lang po, Ngaun ko lang nabasa yang ganyang tanong….. galing…. cguro kung ako tatanungin…. kunin ko na lang ung CV ko… at sasabihin ko Mag abroad na lang ako… isa lang tanong nang employer…. “Do you know this kind of Job?” Answer “Yes, Sir..” bukas may VISA ka na… ang laki pa nang sahod…..hahhahahahah

  7. Oo nga, mas mabilis pag sa abroad, aalamin lang kung kaya mo yung trabaho, malaki pa offer. Bakit kaya sa ‘pinas e, ang daming exam, tapos daming interview, tapos sa huli pa sasabihin yung sahod, madi-disappoint ka lang kapag bigay ng offer. Sasabihan ka pa ng take it or leave it..Kaya marami umaalis kasi sa ganoong sistema.
