With about five candidates for every job opening these days, some responsible for hiring decisions have resorted to desperate measures in their efforts to narrow the field. Researchers at career site Glassdoor.com culled through tens of thousands of queries reported by job seekers who had done their best to come up with answers on the spot, and selected the oddest interview questions of the past 15 months.

由于目前美国每个空缺职位平均有约5名候选人,一些负责做出招聘决定的人员开始采用极端招数来缩小候选人范围。招聘网站Glassdoor.com的研究人员梳理了上万个由求职者提供的、曾在面试过程中绞尽脑汁试图回答的问题,从中选出过去15个月最古怪的面试问题。

Luckily for beleaguered candidates, the interviewers seemed in most cases to be more interested in how people responded -- that is, in hearing their thought process, and seeing how well they kept their cool -- than in receiving a "correct" response. A sampling of Glassdoor's list, and where the question was asked:

对于倍感困扰的求职者,幸运的一点是多数情况下面试官更感兴趣的是求职者如何应对——即听到他们的思考过程,以及他们是否能保持冷静——而不是求职者能否给出“正确的”答案。下面是Glassdoor整理的一些古怪的面试问题以及提问的公司:
