Quirky gimmicks and curve ball questions may have been the preferred methods of recruiters ten years ago but, as Bob Dylan likes to constantly remind us, times are a changin’. Long gone are those insanely off-key questions like ‘what kind of animal would you be?’, ‘Use an ad slogan to describe yourself’ or even ‘If you could have all the ice cream in the world, how many different flavours would you take to make a sundae and how many toppings would you pick?’.
Recruiters are now starting to see the value of productive questions, ones which actually reveal something about their candidate rather than acting as a mouthpiece for a BuzzFeed quiz.
