The best way to prepare yourself for the interview is to know what may be
coming and practice for it in advance. Fear of the unknown can only exist when
there is an unknown. Take the time to understand some of the
"standards" when it comes to interviewing questions.
The following are some of the most difficult questions you will face in the
course of your job interviews. Some questions may seem rather simple on the
surface—such as "Tell me about yourself"—but these questions can have
a variety of answers. The more open ended the question, the wider the variation
in the answers. Once you have become practiced in your interviewing skills, you
will find that you can use almost any question as a launching pad for a
particular topic or compelling story.
Others are classic interview questions, such as
"What is your greatest weakness?" Questions most people answer
improperly. In this case, the standard textbook answer for the "greatest
weakness" question is to provide a veiled positive such as: "I work
too much. I just work and work and work." Wrong. Either you are lying or,
worse yet, you are telling the truth, order for more information!
