No matter how talented you are or how much industry experience you have, it is unwise to enter a job interview without having prepared to some extent. While most people know to review the company history before the big day, many just wing it when it comes to the interview Q&A portion. "Winging it" is not recommended. You should also prepare your answers to the most common interview questions.
LiveCareer offers a comprehensive list of the most popular interview questions. However, for convenience's sake, below is a list of some of the more common inquiries:
• What are your strengths and weaknesses?
• What did you enjoy most about your last job?
• What did you like least about your last job?
• Why did you leave your last position?
• What are your overall career goals?
• What positive things would your last employer have to say about you?
• What are some negative things your last employer would say about you?
In addition to actual questions, the hiring manager might ask you to describe a certain situation. For instance, the interviewer may ask you to discuss a time when you had to complete a project on a tight deadline, or to talk about a situation in which the customer was wrong but you were still forced to accommodate him or her.
