Interviewer gave me a blank sheet...

I got a blank white piece of paper and the interviewer told me to go home and do whatever I want with it and email it back. WTF? Should I just download some images and copy/paste? lol... I really don't want to handwrite or draw since I don't have a scanner. He said do anything you want with the paper.


This is for a position with a bank if that matters.

What else happened at interview. This is a gimmick to set you apart. Did you have a cover letter. Do you have skill sets above the job requirements, etc. think along the idea of what they want. What position - loan officer do a spreadsheet on rates and credit scores. Have fun with it but keep it to show why you and not the other guy.

Unless they're looking for a sketch artist at the bank, write on the paper, "Thanks, but no thanks" and look elsewhere.

Sometimes HR people are just dumb. And I work at a school that trains HR people.

I'll bet he thinks he's particularly provocative. How about a drawing? Entitle it "inspiration".

Send it back completely black. He gave you a sheet with nothing, you gave it back with everything.

Seriously though, the interviewer is likely reading all of this as a simple google search will determine that you have asked this question on a number of forums. You won't get the job as you can't think for yourself.

Print dollar bills on it and buy him a lap dance from a stripper with fake boobs because they would be fake dollars and you can't buy real things with fake money. But he would be none the wiser so he would give you knucks and you are in.

Write something in invisible ink. If you get crap for turning in a blank sheet of paper, call him/her out on it.
