As these tips explain, employers sometimes ask seemingly odd questions simply to see how you might handle them. If you're wondering how to answer curveball interview questions, like "If you were an animal, which one would you want to be?", try to look at this step as a creative challenge. Remember to be yourself and to answer questions without overthinking them.
If there's a way you can incorporate industry-specific terms when answering unexpected questions, try to do so. For example, for a sale position, an interviewer might ask how you would sell office supplies to the company. Think of innovative strategies that align with the field in which you are seeking a position. Last, but not least, don't forget your confidence and a smile when answering those questions that seem to come out of the blue.
