Tackling Tough Interview Questions

  1. “Tell me about yourself.” Give a quick rundown of your accomplishments and qualifications. Describe your education, experience and future goals.
  1. “Where do you see yourself in five years?” Focus on industry-based answers. Demonstrate to the employer that you value loyalty and stability. Be ambitious in wanting to move up, but do not be overzealous and say you want to take over the company
  1. “What are your weaknesses?” Identify areas in your work where you can improve. Don’t act as though you are perfect. Show you’re eager to learn. Turn your weaknesses into assets.
  1. “How would others describe you?” Prepare for this question beforehand by asking your peers and supervisors how they would describe you.
  1. “Tell me about your work history.” Before the interview, choose a couple highlights from your resume that you would like to elaborate on during the interview. Do no simply walk the employer through a timeline of your work history. Reveal how your experiences have prepared you for this specific position. If you do not have prior work experience, describe the transferrable skills you have acquired from athletics and how those will translate into the workplace.
