A bewildered lady shocked many people on the internet with the question a job site presented to her.
The woman @beetagolsh shared on Twitter a picture of the question she thought was the most bizarre question she had come across on a job application.
The question read:
"You've been given an elephant. You can't give it away or sell it. What would you do with the elephant?"
Tweeps were divided over the nature of the question. While some tried to proffer an answer they think is best appropriate for the question, others frowned at it and wondered the rationale behind such a question.
"That's literally amazing. I want to hug the creator of that question. Then immediately find and hug the boss of said creator for allowing that question on an application. I adore seeing bits of "Lost Boys" fun from adults. Our inner child needs to breathe daily!!"
"My first thought was find a humane way to kill it and dispose of its body because otherwise it's going to suffer and die because I cannot afford its upkeep.''
"Welcome to employment in 2021....your dream job and ticket out of poverty dashed by the most inconsequential gotcha questions imaginable in an attempted profiling of you from an algorithm."
Meanwhile, a young lady celebrated getting a job at Google after acing her interview.
The young lady with the Twitter handle @dera_jo said she performed wonderfully well in her interview and now works at the technology company.
She wrote on Twitter:
"Super excited to announce that I aced my interviews and now work at @Google.
"Thanks to everyone that helped in my journey o. Unah plenty. I'm glad I've gotten to this phase and I look forward to all the superb things ahead."
