With the economy recovering, more Americans may be feeling confident enough to change jobs. However, if you are thinking of hitting the job-interview circuit again, prepare yourself. You could be asked about your strengths and weaknesses, your career goals, even your hobbies. You may also need to know which direction a cooking hot dog splits when it expands.

Glassdoor has compiled its annual list of the oddest job interview questions.
Job recruiting company Michael Page says the answers may not really matter. "Often these questions are designed to assess your ability to think on your feet, your analytical thinking skills, and your general way of viewing the world. In most cases, the process of getting to an answer is more important than the actual answer itself," as stated on its website.
