Interviews Can Be "Fun" - If You’re Prepared!
PAMELA NONEN, CPRW is equipped to fully prepare you for the interview process by helping you to effectively describe your experience, skills and achievements relative to the prospective employer’s needs.
Interviewers seem to ask a series of similar questions. Preparing for them ahead of time can make responding to them during the interview much easier and less stressful! The more comfortable you are during the interview, the better you will perform.
Below is a list of the Most Commonly Asked Interview Questions. You should be prepared to answer these questions prior to the scheduled Interview Coaching session.
Special Note Regarding Salary: When the subject of salary comes up, it is to your advantage if the employer tells you the "range" first. Prepare by knowing the "going rate" in your area and your bottom line or "walk away" point. One possible answer could be: "I am excited about the opportunity here and I am sure that when the time comes we will be able to agree upon a reasonable amount. In what range do you typically pay someone with my background?" If they do not give a range, your best bet is to respond to them with a range of your own (based on research) rather than a specific dollar amount. This leaves room for negotiation and does not take you out of the running if you were to state an amount that was too high, or sell you short by stating an amount that is too low.
There is no way of predicting which questions will be asked in an interview, but by reviewing some of the "most common" questions you can prepare, practice, and focus on how to present yourself in the most positive way.
