Fun get to know you questions are always used during interviews, when networking, or even just when meeting new people and getting to know them! I have always felt that these types of questions allow you to learn more about different people in a new and unusual format and often you can find similarities between yourselves to bond over! Here are some of my favorite ones!
1. You are a professional athlete, what is your walkup/entrance song?
If I were a professional athlete, my entrance song would be "All I do is win" by DJ Khaled. I would want this as my entrance song because it is the perfect song to get hype and excited to, it makes you feel good, gives you energy, and just pumps you up. As a professional athlete, this song would be perfect to listen to before a competition or game, to get the blood flowing! I actually listen to this song before a big event or big test in my life to help shake off nerves, and get me excited for what is ahead.
2. Sword, lightsaber, or wand? Defend your answer.
As a die-hard Harry Potter enthusiast, I would have to choose a wand. This would be because it can serve so many purposes to help you out. With a wand, you can perform a range of spells that can help you with simple tasks all the way to defending yourself against the Dark Lord, if you were to ever find yourself in that situation. Compared to a sword or lightsaber, wands are the most efficient for transportation and the easiest to keep on your body while being inconspicuous. It is small enough to just fit in your pocket or bag without taking up too much space like a sword would and is slim enough to hide compared to the base of a lightsaber which is quite thick. Wands are also unique to each individual, which makes it more fun to have something with you that was made just for you.
3. What television character do you most embody and why?
I believe that I most embody Kelly Kapoor from the TV show, The Office. I would say that we share a lot of traits in common, such as we are both outgoing, social, caring, enjoy social media, but are also hardworking and get the job done. During the show, Kelly kept things fun around the office with her great sense of humor, and I like to think that I am the same way. I am hard working and passionate about what I do, but I also know that you have to enjoy the journey and make the most of it, and that is what I believe Kelly did while at Dunder Mifflin. Also, she was one of the few characters that looked like me and showed me that as a young Indian American girl, I can achieve whatever I want to, and be successful no matter what anyone told me.
4. If you could invite three famous people to dinner who would you invite and why?
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Building
I would invite Barack Obama, Ellen Degeneres, and Beyonce to dinner. I chose each of them because they are people who I look up to, who have made the world a better place, and who have worked hard to inspire a new generation of caring individuals. They have done so much to give to the world and having dinner with them would be an honor. They all represent a diverse group of people whose job is not quite identical to the other but have all worked for the same common cause, spreading love and kindness around the world.
These questions help you to uncover a new side of each person that you meet or speak to and truly get to know the deepest, weirdest and quirkiest things about each other!
