High Tech Interview QuestionsLooking to take your nine to five into the 21st century? Better make sure your interview skills are well connected.

Job interviews are never easy, no matter how much you research the company or talk to former and current employees you never know what you’re walking into. Fortunately some employers aren’t playing their cards close to the chest. So if you’re looking to break into the tech sector Business Insider talked to some of the biggest companies around to see what type of questions you might face.

For example, one of Facebook’s favorite questions to ask is Š—“what are you doing on your best day?” The company’s head of recruiting says there is no right answer and the purpose is to tap into the candidate’s motivation and drive.

At LinkedIn they ask what are you most passionate about and then have your sketch it out on a white board to see how spontaneous people are and how well they communicate. For some other questions you might face on your next high tech job interview click the link below. Never hurts to be prepared.Link:ξInterview Questions

Kubo The RobotThe world has gone high tech; and now your toddler can follow along.

These days everything we need is just a click, swipe or tap away. And if it's not already automated; chances are it's well on its way. And that means that the next generation of the work force needs to be well equipped to keep up. Teachers and experts are encouraging students to take an interest in classes such as science, engineering and math. And now your child can start learning the basics even before they enter a classroom.

Meet Kubo, an educational robot that teaches your children the basics of coding. Kubo comes with a set of tiles that can be arranged in a variety of sequences, representing the command string of a text-based coding language. Kubo then moves over a sequence of tiles, processes the commands and acts them out. Right now Kubo is available for preorder at just under $170.
