This study lists:

  • “If you were a god what would you do?” — a list of the most OFF-BEAT interview questions asked by recruiters

  • “Do you have a problem with vampires?” — most unusual questions asked by job candidates in an interview

  • TOP stories of the worst interview experiences

These results are highlighted in the article: Top interview questions 2021: From most common to most unusual and in the select infographics below.
