That?s the question we ask you when you apply at FTWK. Yes! We know questions like these are quite cheesy from an HR point of view ? but oh well,analogies often tell the truth! So, here are our ten favourite answers, see if you could spot your favourite one.
?Eagle-fearless, tenacious, have a vision, does not fly with other birds, never eat dead meat, nurture the young ones.?
? Applicant One
?I would go for the ? duck! OK, on the first sight you would think this animal is quite lame, and I can?t really blame you for that. But if you think of it twice, the duck is able to fly, to swim and to walk which makes it a really good asset on various fields. Also, its feathers are covered in a high-quality oil which turns them into a perfect waterproof lining, another ability to adapt quickly. Finally, it gets along really easily with other ducks, you already heard them, they can chat during hours. However, it can also mind its own business on the side. To sum up, this beaky-beast is one of the most well-designed animals on earth, as well as a really nice social duck-fellow!?
? Applicant Two
?A hedgehog. Because of the way these legs pop out.?
? Applicant Three
?I?d be a chicken because they?re allowed to look stupid, crosseyed and unpredictable. And everyone loves curry!?
? Applicant Four
?I love these HR questions. Even though it?s highly discouraged from an HR perspective ? I would love to be a cat. I do have two of these creatures and would spend the day with them relaxing in the sun or chasing laser dots.?
? Applicant Five
?I am a classic ?Mter?. I?m very interested in different kinds of smelling.?
? Applicant Six
?Definitely a cat, because I am very independent. I appreciate the attention but only when I want it.?
? Applicant Seven
?A dog. They are adventurous, they like to explore, they are smart, they learn fast, no matter the age they stay playful and curious, they are funny and have fun, they adapt to different situations, tend to stay calm unless it happens something that requires them to show their strong character, they care about the others, are grateful; and whenever they want something, they take the time to understand the situation before they find the sweetest and harmless way do achieve so, while pretending to be innocent. And all of that, with the best easy going attitude that enables them to enjoy life and be loved by those around them.?
? Applicant Eight
? Applicant Nine
?A honey badger. He may seem rude from the outside and can be assertive, but he also is a real problem solver and engages his environment in a smart and loving way.?
? Applicant Ten
OKAY. Perhaps not just ten, we have a bonus:
?There?s something about having the ability to fly that I?ve always been attracted to. The grace of watching a hawk circling an open sky. But in that, there?s something about wanting to see familiar sights from a new perspective. I do this on my own, always looking for opportunities to look at the world around me through a different lens. But I also don?t think anything could beat the magic of flying.?
? Applicant Eleven
