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:

You can also enlist a friend or family member to quiz you until your answers feel natural.
