How to Ace Six Popular Interview Questions
August 3rd, 2009 by lewisTweet
The Salt Lake Tribune has an excellent article on how ace the six most popular interview questions. Here are my favorite takeaways:
- Practice, practice, practice. Rachelle Cantor, a career coach, has an excellent insight. Practicing minimizes the chance that job seekers will be caught off-guard. If you want to sound spontaneous and conversational during the interview, spend time practicing.
- “What’s the worst boss you had?” The commentary here is absolutely on point. It’s not so much as have you had a bad boss, but how did you adapt to it? It’s an opportunity to demonstrate your tolerance and perseverance. It’s also an opportunity to show your ingenuity — that is, how did you make the most out of a bad situation?
