Updated: Oct 19, 2022
It's difficult to predict exactly what questions you're going to be asked in a job interview. However, some practice can help you communicate more confidently when it's game time. How? Prepare some responses to commonly asked questions and try to create a storytelling about you that will do you justice! We are not going to tell you the most asked questions, we decided to help you on a different level and we selected the most dangerous questions you can face! Don’t get scared and read the following list (we will give you some tips to survive)!
“What would your prior boss say about you?” This is a good opportunity to highlight a qualitative strength that you haven’t been able to talk about. Be honest, don’t put too much in the win column but don't be too negative. "What would you do in the first 100 days on the job?" This is a test of your preparation, research, initiative, and humility. Have a concrete plan for how you would approach your early days. Be sure fact-finding and learning are a key part of it.
"Is there anything else we should know about you?"
This is a standard closing question. Resist the urge to say "Nope!" to end the interview. Give a summary of your excitement for the opportunity at this company. Leave a good final impression.
Do you have any questions?
Instead of waiting until the end of the interview, interject and ask genuine questions during the talk. It shows you are curious and ready to learn
“Why are you leaving your job?”
This can be a test for negativity. Never say anything negative about your former employer. Stay positive and highlight why the new company and role are a better fit for your goals.
