Man Asked to Solve This Ethical Dilemma for Job Interview… His Answer Gets Him Hired

Job interviews are usually dreadful experiences. As the interviewee, you can prepare for potential questions in advance, but you can never be sure if an answer you give will sink your chances of being hired or lead you to employment days or weeks later.

The worst questions, perhaps, are those that pose an ethical dilemma in which you are given what appears to be a lose-lose situation. You have to come up with a creative solution that would mitigate or even eliminate any negative outcomes.

During a recent job interview, one man was asked:

You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night. You pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus:

1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.

2. An old friend who once saved your life.

3. The perfect man (or) woman you have been dreaming about.

Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing there could only be one passenger in your car?

The man thought for a while. He could pick up the old lady because she is going die. He could pick up his old friend and repay him since he once saved, in this scenario, the applicant’s life. Or he could pick up his perfect dream lover because he might never see her again.

In the end, he answered, “I would give the car keys to my old friend and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the woman of my dreams.”

The candidate’s answer was brilliant. The result: He was hired out of a pool of 200 applicants (H/T Young Conservatives).

Now if only Washington could come up with a few brilliant answers. Cheers, Unc
