  • If you were an.......

    instrument what would you be and why?

    Went to a job interview this morning as a learning resource technician, and one of the interviews were with the student council. They asked me the instrument question. I had prepared for if you were a fruit what would you be and why? not for an instrument though. I replied I would be a guitar because sometimes I'm loud and noisy but you can pull out the plug and I'll become quiet like an acoustic guitar, but I'd be a pink one because of my creative colourful side. I'll know tomorrow if I get the job. Wish me luck.

    oh good answer - I'd have been stumped. Can't think off the top of my head how I answered that, will need to think about it. Suspect I haven't got the job then

      Good luck, got my fingers crossed.
      I don't have a clue what to say when put on the spot, I'd have said piano, but the only reason why is because I play that instrument!

        I think I'd have to be a harp,

        A touch melodramatic ,very complicated to learn but once you get the hang of me ( me=moods ) I'm surprisingly easy to handle and I weigh a ton !!,lol

              Not sure about me, but the wife would be a top of the range guitar without strings.....

              Looks good from a distance, but thats about it.

                Oh boy are you in trouble if she sees your answer!!

                I would be a guitar too because I definitely do come with strings (and have been known to snap unexpectedly), but acoustic for my soft side!

                  Ooh you're a brave man!!

                  Having thought about it, I'd be a violin, can be unbearable in the wrong hands, but a loving touch will make sweet, sweet music

                    Very creative one and all. I'd have to be a drum kit because you need to beat me around the head to get any reaction. Good luck with the job.

                      Some great answers.

                      Heard last night that they are working out if they can employ more than one person as they had some strong canditates. So they will let us know today. There's nothing I can do now to change any decision they make so I'm keeping calm.

                              I'd be a clarinet is all I can think. I got to grade 8 on it so it would be the first instrument I would think of. I don't see how those questions help choose people for a job though!
