What are Your Strengths? Talk about strengths that are very specific to the job you’re interviewing for.
Have you ever had a conflict with a boss or professor? Employer may want to see whether you will trash a professor or former employer. Don’t fall into the trap. And if you truly have NOT had a conflict, tell how you would handle it if you did.
How would you describe your ideal job? Your description of your ideal job should sound like the job you’re interviewing for.
Would your rather work with information or with people? Ideally, both, but tailor response to job and describe strengths in each area. Don’t make yourself sound weak in either area.
What qualities do you feel a successful manager should have? The question has a two-fold purpose:
How has your education prepared you for your career? Describe your educational preparation as very specific to the job. Provide concrete examples, when possible.
How much training do you think you’ll need to become a productive employee? Key word is productive. You can be productive immediately. Make sure you express confidence in your ability to make an impact immediately.
Why is your GPA not higher? Don’t whine or make excuses. Response should enhance your value as employee.
YES or NO Questions:
Never respond with just “yes” or “no.”
