INTERVIEW QUESTIONS
2009/2010SEMESTER 2LSP 401INTERVIEW QUESTIONS[FKN]1
 
Common interview question #1
“Tell me about yourself”
Sometimes called a
T-MAY,
this open ended question can set the stage for your gettinga job offer very quickly. It can also set you up to get dismissed out of hand right away.Always, always, ALWAYS
turn your answers into positive job accomplishments at every opportunity.
Don’t let your answer meander around about your hobbies, groupaffiliations, or what you do in your leisure time. This is a JOB interview,
so make your answer fit the requirements
of the JOB. If you have specific training (such as anaccounting degree) or other training relevant to the job, make sure you incorporate thatinto your 
T-MAY
.
If this is the “lead off question”
If this is the “lead off question” (and it usually is), ask for a more complete description of what the position entails. You could say, “I have several accomplishments I’d like tospeak with you about, but to make the best use of our time together, I’d like to talkdirectly to your needs and the job requirements. Could you tell me the most importantpriorities of this position? All I know is what I (heard from the recruiter, read in theclassified ad, read on your website, etc.). and I’d like a little more information.”Next, follow-up with a second and even a third question, to draw out those needs evenmore. This second or third question usually unearths what the interviewer is mostlooking for. By asking, “And in addition to that?” or, “Is there anything else you see asessential to success in this position?” you’ll set yourself up to understand better what theinterview is looking for.
It’s critical to think before you speak in an interview
Don’t fall victim to your natural impulse to simply answer the questions. If you canuncover the employer’s wants and needs,
you can tailor your answers to the job.
Practice your answers so the process will feel more natural. Remember, this is a

competition and you have to use your talents, skills, and preparation to outshine theother candidates.After uncovering what the interviewer is looking for, describe why the needs of thisparticular job match quite nicely with the tasks you’ve successfully performed in previoussituations. Be specific with examples of your responsibilities and especially your achievements so you can present yourself as a perfect match for the needs of theposition.
Common interview question #2
“Can you describe a previous work or school situation in whichyou …?”[mention the situation]
This question comes in many forms, but what the interviewer is looking for is your behavior on the job. Be aware that more and more interviewers are moving toward a
behavioral interview technique
where most questions are asked in terms that requireyou to answer with specific examples of your past behaviors. Your answer could focuson a crisis you helped resolve, overcoming a negotiation deadlock with your creativity,handling a problem coworker, or juggling multiple tasks on a project for a previous job or class.
Past behaviour predicts future behaviour 
The theory behind this type of question is that past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior. Interviewers believe that how you handled situations in the past willindicate how you’ll handle similar problems in the future.Prepare real job or school examples
in advance
, and describe your behavior in specificsituations that prove you have the skills the job requires.
