Those lucky enough to land themselves an interview should get ready to answer some tough questions.
Google applicants must prepare themselves to answer some tricky questions when they land themselves an interview at the company.
|With about 2 million people applying for a job each year, it is almost 10 times harder to get a job at Google than it is to get into Harvard. Those lucky enough to land themselves an interview should get ready to answer some tough questions.
Those that make the cut will be asked questions like: "How many haircuts do you think happen in America every year?"
Business Insider has compiled a list of some tough and at times plain odd questions asked by recruiters at Google. The list was compiled using Glassdoor’s information about the tech giant.
For instance, one Associate Account Strategist was asked: “If you could only choose one song to play every time you walked into a room for the rest of your life, what would it be?”
Others were asked to describe AdWords to a seven-year old and how they would go about building a communication system to communicate with a colony on Mars.
While you may be able to find the answers by entering the question into the online search engine itself, the questions are not meant to be answered accurately but designed to challenge the candidate to act under pressure and see how the applicant solves problems.
Check out the questions below for inspiration on what to ask candidates at the next interview.
Google isn't the only tech company who frequently stump candidates with tricky interview questions. For instance, neither Netflix or LinkedIn shy away from challenging their candidates with tough interview questions.
