During The Interview
5 Common Questions And Tips To Answer Them
Stay positive about your last job. And be completely honest. If you quit, tell them why. Don't talk trash about your last employer. They will most likely be calling your employer later on.
Describe your greatest accomplishments
Always give two or three accomplishments. Use ones you got an official award for, or individual recognition for. Describe your ability to be a team player. But don't be funny or irrelevant.
How do people describe you?
Focus on characteristics necessary for the job. And prepare your answers in advance so they can be structured properly, not to make you look bad. But you need to explain why people would describe you like that, not just list some things off.
Why should we hire you?
Remember, they are taking a risk if they hire you. Use characteristics from the job description to explain why you should be hired. Structure your answers to show you meet the requirements.
When can you start?
Know the answer before they ask. If they need you earlier than you can start, be flexible. Don't quit your job until you have written proof that you are being hired. And don't leave without sufficient notice to your employer.
