Every time a conversation takes place with respect to the jobs, the very common and natural fear is evident on the people’s face that is how to ace an interview. Often the job hunting phenomena lands up people into the fear of interviews. The fear of interviews with the out of the box questions being asked and not able to answer them might end up leaving your chances of getting hired to almost nil. Interview questions are not only limited to only your specified field but sometimes you may be asked some of the divergent questions. These may include:
How will you explain any color to a blind person?
Do you deem yourself lucky or unlucky?
If you were an animal, what would be you?
First of all the only way to answer these bizarre questions is not to panic as these questions are assigned in order to assess the critical thinking ability of the candidate. It is not always necessary that these bizarre questions require a specific answer but what counts is the demonstration of your answer, mental ability and way of thinking process. A successful interview is what leads you to the chances of being locked for getting hired. Here are some of the tips you can follow to ace an interview with an ease:

- Don’t forget to carry the extra copies of your resume and your sample work.
- ‘Practice makes the man perfect’. Practice as much as you can for some of the basic interview questions which are frequently asked in the interview. Some of the basic questions asked are listed below :
