Hi Google 🐟! My fiancé has their interview loop for a recruiter position coming up and is looking for help on how to ace the hypothetical questions.

Any tips or tricks for how to formulate responses? Is there a bank of potential hypotheticals the interviewers choose from? Does anyone have a list of example questions?

Any guidance is greatly appreciated!

They should be utilizing their own experience to answer the hypotheticals.
Questions are variable by interviewer and it’s more about the follow ups than the initial question. They should verbalize their thought process and speak through their assumptions. There’s sometimes no right or wrong answer but it’s how you got there.

Don’t ramble and conclude your answer concisely.

Would add to not be afraid to ask clarifying questions. In my experience interviewers were happy to expand and it never a bad quality to make sure things are clear before proceeding.

Practice star method !! There are plenty of videos on YouTube on how to ace google interviews and this is the number one recommended method. Additionally, make sure they have a toolbox of scenarios that they can utilize throughout the interview process. Good luck👍🏼
