Interview Questions

Are you in a relationship?
Any ongoing plans of marriage?
When do you plan to get married?

Recently I went for a job interview
It was an interview with the MD of the company.
and those where the questions I was asked.

When I was told that my next interview was with the MD
Fear grip me no be small.
I had crammed answers to almost every possible interview questions available to me.
The HR guy that selected me self, was giving me small small answer and inside info.
and He told me not to fuck up as he has said so much about me to the MD.
He said he had told her I was good and the basis of the interview was to find out how good i was.

I was shocked at the questions, because I was wondering in my mind what those had to do with the job i was applying for. The only normal interview questions she asked was where I see my self in the next five years.

Did I get the job, yes I did and am so much fun at it. I guess the MD had her reasons for asking those non-job related questions.

Seems like a question to gauge how long you'd be sticking around for. Glad you got the job though!

Yea, so they'll know if maternity leave is coming up sooner than later OR

If you just got married or you're about to, then it means you'll be around for a while.

Congratulations on the new job.

Actually those questions are illegal here and they can be sued for it. I guess anything goes in Nigeria.
