Interview Questions – What to Expect & How to Prepare — Advice from CareerBuilder


Two questions job candidates should always
prepare for is “why did you leave your last job” and “why do you want to work here?” The question that they should prepare for
is “why you?” Why should we select you versus some of the other candidates that we previously
interviewed? “What is your strengths and what is your
weaknesses?” I’m not a big fan of that question, but I feel like most uh interviewers
do ask it in the interview process. The number one interview question that all
job candidates should prepare for is what they call a STAR question. Where you are presented
with a situation that you were in and you are asked to expand on how you responded,
what the result was, what the action was. So it’s a scenario of a difficult situation
or a situation where you were innovative or something like that. “Tell me about yourself” is possibly the number
one interview question and it’s usually the first interview question that candidates are
asked. So, it’s so important to be able to answer that in a clear and concise manner,
while keeping it interesting and actually making sure you’re telling a story. The
way you answer that that question really sets the tone for the rest of the interview.
