- Tell me something about yourself.
- What is your greatest strength?
- What are your strengths and weaknesses?
- Why should we hire you?
- What is your greatest accomplishment?
- What is the professional achievement you’re most proud of?
- What kind of working environment do you work best in?
- Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
- Why did you change your career path?
- Why did you decide to leave your previous/current job?
- Why is there a gap in your work experience?
- How would your boss describe you?
- Are you a team player?
- Are you a risk-taker?
- How do you deal with pressure or stressful situation?
- Do you think there is a difference between hard work and smart work?
- How quickly do you adapt to new technology?
- Do you have any interests outside of work?
- Give an example of how you have handled a challenge in the workplace before.
- Give an example of when you performed well under pressure.
- Give an example of when you showed leadership qualities.
You want to answer the questions in a way that ensures you are heard, understood, and able to make a connection with the interviewer/hiring manager. You want to make a positive and memorable first impression.
You want to answer the questions in a clear, succinct, and engaging way by adding well-crafted personal stories. This will ensure you are viewed as personable, relatable, and likable but it will also highlight your interpersonal communication skills and self-awareness.
Join us in this supportive group coaching environment with others who are on the job market to rehearse and share your story-based answers. You will get professional coaching on how well you weaved stories into your answers and how well you ultimately answered the question(s). You will get feedback on your nonverbal communication, the impression you make, and how well you are communicating who you are and what you have to offer.
We'll help you build your confidence and get you excited for your next job interview!
