    schema:description "As if job interviews weren't intimidating enough, a number of the most desirable companies are raising the ante. Instead of "Tell us about yourself" or "What is your biggest weakness?" applicants are confronted by challenges such as: Why are beer cans tapered on the ends? How many piano tuners are there in the world? How many ping pong balls can you stuff into a Boeing 747? Design a bathroom for the CEO of the company. If you could remove any one of the 50 US states, which would you select and why? What are the interviewers looking for? In general, they want insights into how you think and how creative you are. Can you articulate a problem in a creative way? Can you shift your point of view so you think outside the box? Can you outline a logical procedure for estimating an answer? Can you defend the answer against objections? Only by evaluating your responses will the interviewer be able to determine what sets you apart from the rest, and, perhaps more importantly, how well you respond to unusual or unexpected business situations.; Acing such interviews requires a new mindset. It's not about right and wrong. The obvious answers are generally the least desirable (and generally wrong!). Today, success requires outrageous mental leaps, enormous confidence, and taking risks. These are the challenges that the best companies use to separate the best from the good. Can you measure up and make the cut? This book will help you. This book is a how-to for job applicants who want to be prepared for a line of think-on-your feet creativity stumpers currently in vogue by a number of companies determined to select the best employees in today's incredibly competitive job market. A number of articles, books, and broadcasts indicate that many employers in search of the "Right Stuff" are throwing out traditional questions in favor of problem-solving queries.; Their goal is to seek out talented individuals who are not only smart but can think on their feet. Kador takes an in-depth look at the variety of challenges an applicant can expect to be asked in addition to offering proven strategies for knocking them out of the park. The main part of the book will give readers the inside track on the most popular such questions and what interviewers are looking for. A section of the book will allow readers to test their creativity against a set of new brain teasers and off-the-wall questions."@en ;
