You can expect interviewers to ask about your previous job responsibilities and experiences. In this context, it helps to focus not just on specific actions you performed, but also on the purpose these actions served. For example, an administrative assistant could state he stapled papers and put them in drawers, which sounds uninspiring. Describing the same job as maintaining and organizing a record-keeping system shows you understand the bigger picture.
Prepare to discuss negative experiences. Interviewers may ask why you left a previous job. They may want you to talk about a time you failed at something, describe a weakness, or instance a difficult time in your work life.
For these and other behavioral questions, it can help to review STAR response approaches. Use a positive tone and focus on how your experiences have made you better at your job.
