- A young lady caused an uproar on social media as she revealed the awkward question she was required to answer during a job application
- She described it as the most bizarre question she has ever seen
- Social media users tried to provide an answer to the question just as many others expressed surprise that such a question was even asked
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, Briefly News previously reported that one local lady is definitely proving it's never too late to turn your situation around. After Fortunate Makgeru got accepted to study for her dream career at university, the journey to graduation proved an uphill battle for the determined young lady.
The young woman had begun her studies towards becoming an optometrist back in 2014. Fortunate says she never really felt as smart as the other students but kept coming back year after year hoping she might do better academically.
