Step 3 of Interview Preparation: Practice Answering Common Questions

by Dec 6, 2018

You probably won’t be able to anticipate every question that your interviewer will ask, but there are some questions that commonly come up and you should practice answering them in advance. As Alia Hollback observes of this third step:


“Though many interviews contain notoriously dreaded questions like, ‘What is your greatest weakness?’ with a little preparation, these questions are nothing to fear.”


Other common questions probe your greatest strengths, work history, motivation and why you left you last job. Don’t let these or other questions covered in Hollback’s article catch you off guard; practice your answers and take notes. You can also enlist a friend or family member to quiz you until your answers feel natural.
