"How are you going to choose which offer to accept..."

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Sep 01, 2011 11:56 pm

Anybody else been getting this question at OCI: "How are you going to choose which offer to accept, because I you're going to get a lot of offers?" Are the people giving that interviews really that clueless? Do they not realize that the job market is not the same as it was in 2002 when they graduated?
I've been asked this question multiple times. To date, I have 0 callbacks, and multiple rejection letters.
I can only assume I'm missing something. Does the proper answer entail some reference to be willing to fellate the interviewer?
Or has this experience been unique to me?

Answer it the same as, "What are you looking for in a firm?"

I've been asked this numerous times in CBs. I hate this question because I dont want someone telling me I'm going to get lots of offers unless they're planning on offering. I just try to answer by distinguishing their firm from others.
