We all know how stressful job interviews can be especially when your potential employer is asking you difficult questions. Job website Glassdoor put together the 20 toughest interview questions, asked by powerhouse companies like Microsoft and Tesla in 2016.
Before you try to Google the answers, experts believe these difficult questions are designed to reveal something about the candidate and don't always have a 'correct' answer. Glassdoor's David Whitby explained: 'It's not necessarily about getting the right answer, more how you cope under pressure.'
