Around this time of year, when a fresh crop of graduates are ripe and ready for harvesting, employers start to dust off their list of difficult interview questions. Apparently Google are well known for their off-the-wall enquiries including: 'Why are manhole covers round' and 'What gives you joy' - which all sounds like fun, if a little perspiration-inducing.
However, I think that I can top that by a question I was asked recently:
'Tell us about yourself - what does your husband do?'
I did look around the room to check and no, I'm pretty sure I hadn't entered a time portal to the Victorian age...
