    You're right; exactly the type of litmus test that allows the interviewer to see how far he can trust the other answers the candidate has given.

    These are the types of questions designed not so much to illicit specific bits of information about the applicant, but to see how they react to unexpected situations or how creatively they can solve problems.

    You're only as good as your last piece of work. Past performance counts for little. Always strive for excellence.

    When you leave a job, always try to leave on good terms. It's a small world, and you may well have to work with the same people again.

    For you cold cereal eaters, do you drink the 'extra' milk out of the bowl or dump it down the drain? I drink it, yummy!

    I had a really bad day and completely bombed a training evaluation at work.

    I'm going to have to do it over again. Luckily, there are no repercussions other than that.

    Though next time, I'd better get everything right.
