Answering interview questions is hard. Trying to determine whether an employer and job is right for you, whilst representing the best version of yourself and selling your abilities is going to put even the most articulate of us under pressure. If there was a silver bullet to interview success (apart from being right for the job!) we would say the recipe to a successful interview is preparation. Always make sure you are over prepared. Do your research and have your answers about yourself rehearsed and intelligent questions to ask.
To help you in your interview preparation we have create this article as an interview answer study guide. We asked some of the employers we work with to tell us their favourite interview questions. Underneath each question, whilst we wont be telling you what to answer because we have given you helpful advice on the dos and don’ts to approaching your answer to each of these questions. Whilst some may seem obvious you would be surprised how many of us answer with a don’t when in a pressured interview enviroment.
