Despite the fact that interviewers aren’t able to anticipate every question you might face, they can be fairly certain to ask questions about your past work experience and your general fit for the position. By preparing for common interview questions in advance, you can be prepared to speak to your strengths and qualifications with confidence.
Most interviews begin with an interviewer asking you to tell them about yourself. While it’s important to share relevant information about your background (such as your education, previous jobs, and why you left your last job), it’s also key to be able to demonstrate your expertise by sharing examples of how you’ve applied what you’ve learned in the workplace. For example, if the company’s process improved after you implemented a new procedure, be sure to mention that. This helps the interviewer to see how you would add value as an employee.
Another common question is how you handle pressure in the workplace. If you find yourself struggling to articulate your answer, try using the STAR technique: Situation, Task, Action, and Results. By preparing a few stories ahead of time, you can be ready to discuss how you’ve handled pressure in the past without seeming robotic or reading from a script.
Most interviewers will wrap up the interview by asking you if you have any questions for them. Be prepared to answer this question, but be sure you have a few questions of your own to add. This will show that you are engaged in the interview and truly interested in working for the company. Job interview preparation
