Current events as interview chit-chat?

Baltimore & the media is buzzing with the story of the female astronaut, Lisa Nowak and her now being a kidnapper.

So, how could this enter a job interview?  In order to break the ice, a well-meaning interviewer asked if my client had heard of this.

My client didn’t know what to say!  I’m in Baltimore-it’s a huge story…Sure, she’s heard & read & saw on TV!

But, what to say?  Candidates should be prepared for current events chit-chat…And answering in general terms-without giving an opinion is best…

Wondering what other  weird/uncomfortable interview questions you’ve encountered?

In Abundance!
