You could have the perfect portfolio, countless degrees and a pristine resume, but when it comes to a job interview, simply knowing your stuff is no longer good enough. Interviewers are getting more and more creative with their questions, and
For Lillian Roberts, co-founder of accounting company Xendoo, a curveball question like "What's your closet look like?" can make or break potential employees. It's the sort of question that helps determine whether the person being interviewed is a good fit for the company's culture.
As Roberts explains on the series premiere of CNBC's The Job Interview, details are everything. Meaning the guy who hangs his pants a specific way to maintain the crease probably has a better chance than the woman who doesn't want you anywhere near her closet at the end of the week.
Remember: No matter how creative, odd or unexpected the question, a bad answer can bomb the interview. So take a deep breath and always be sure to fold your clothes.
