A great way to respond to a question that catches you off guard is to first acknowledge the question. Admit that you do not know the answer or had not considered that before. Interviewers ask tough questions but the important thing to remember is that your thought process is usually more important than your answer. Companies want to see someone that can take initiative and have resources to solve a problem. This is much more attractive to interviewers than someone who knows it all or will need to have their hand held through problems that arise.
Never forget to send a thank-you email to your interviewers. Thank them for their time and interest in you. It is also a good idea to address any outstanding concerns you may have or ask additional questions. This can show your interest and engagement in the position. A thank-you email can also be a great second chance to address any questions you stumbled on during the interview or demonstrate how you would address any outstanding concerns they may have.
