Best Responses to the "Tell Me a Joke..." Interview Question:

By: Casey Siewert Tuesday January 7, 2014 comments Tags: Hiring, job interviews, Recruiting

Have you ever been asked in an interview to tell a joke?

This could pose to be a real problem if you don't have a clean, non-offensive joke in your back pocket. In fact, whether you've been asked this in an interview or not, its always a good idea to have a clean, non-offensive joke in your back pocket.

Here are some great ones that we found:

"Two antennas met on a roof. They fell in love and got married. The wedding wasn't much, but the reception was great."

"A woman proudly told her friend, 'I'm responsible for making my husband a millionaire.' 'Well what was he before he married you?' the friend asked. 'A billionaire.'"

"A man walks into a library and approaches the librarian. The librarian smiles and asks 'How can I help you today?'
The man says, 'Can I get a tunafish sandwich on white?'
Bewildered the librarian says 'Sir this is library...'
The man replies (in a whisper), 'Sorry. Can I get a tunafish sandwich on white?'"

You probably shouldn't venture to tell these career-related jabs. You never know who the interviewer is friends with.

Do you have a favorite clean, non-offensive joke that you tell?
