Today’s tip is about a question that is often asked in a job interview for a building super that starts with “What if…” This type of question is called a hypothetical and it’s a fictitious work situation that candidates are asked to listen to and explain how they would respond to it.

Often, these hypotheticals are designed like a puzzle and are difficult to answer on the spot. Indeed, many candidates fail this question.

This episode gives you some quick tips on how to tackle these types of questions. I reveal why they’re difficult to answer and so easy to get lost when trying to answer them. Candidates often turn on their emotions to find the right answer and then unexpectedly find it almost impossible to find their way back. 

This episode shows you why emotions are the WRONG path to take to answering these questions. I reveal what the interviewer is really looking for and how to follow THREE simple rules to help you untangle these puzzles.

In this clip, you’ll also learn how NOT to answer this question. And, you’ll learn what your response SHOULD be to (1) overcome the traps of answering this question and impress the most skeptical interviewers; (2) stay memorable in the minds of your interviewer by saying things that make them feel that you are a confident and clear-minded candidate; and (3) get the most out of the interview, even if you fail, with nuggets of wisdom that will help you in the future to get one step closer to the elusive: “YES, YOU’VE GOT THE JOB!”

Keep learning, keep motivated!
