THE INTERVIEW: BE PREPARED TO ANSWER AND ASK THESE QUESTIONS

0

First impressions are often lasting impressions, and the interview is usually the first opportunity to make a positive impression on a potential employer. Make sure you're prepared for interviews by practicing your responses to some of the most commonly asked interview questions. At the same time, don't forget that you are, in a way, interviewing the employer as well to learn more about the position and organization. The interview should flow as a conversation, where both parties are trying to learn if the other is a good fit.

For example, instead of saying you are motivated, provide an example of how you proactively identified a need at a previous company and subsequently led a project to meet that need. This will prove that you are motivated without you just saying, "I'm highly motivated." If an employer ever asks you to "tell me about a time…" this is the type of response they are seeking. They don't want to hear that you are good at time management—they want you to provide actual examples of your time management skills.
