What to Say When Candidates Ask the Darndest Things

Recruiters usually have the upper hand when it comes to interviewing, right? You've broken the ice with an open-ended question along the lines of, "Tell me about yourself," and your interviewee is on his way to sharing a revealing tale of trial and error.

Then, out of nowhere, a left-fielder. The candidate floors you with a strange question about the company, and you're stuck between a rock and a hard place. Cat's got your tongue. You struggle to deal with the rude awakening and mumble something passive.

We've rounded up several of the most outlandish questions asked by candidates and put them to the test with Entelo Recruiter Evangelist Loni Spratt. Read on to get her advice on dealing with awkward interview questions. 

Dear Recruiters, Why Do All Your Employees Look the Same?

Entelo guest blogger Maebellyne Ventura weighs in the pros of hiring for diversity, because perhaps the only con is — you guessed it — that you don't already practice it.
