Rapid Fire Interview Questions

I think the best way to decode personal brand is through rapid-fire questions. I am a big fan of this concept where you give just a few minutes to answer these question, and it is the best way to understand the person better, and on the other hand, as an interviewee, it is a great opportunity to tell more about yourself.
