THREE TOUGH QUESTIONS
1.INTERVIEWER: ‘WHY SHOULD I HIRE YOU?”
YOUR RESPONSE: Illustrate why you are the most qualified candidate. Do this by reviewing the job description and closely identifying to the skills hated. Then, cite experiences from your past that correlate to those skills and knowledge.
2. INTERVIEWER: “TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF,”
YOUR RESPONSE: This is likely a worm question, hut don’t go through your resume point. By-point Keep your answer to a minute or…
Cover four topics: easy years, education, work history, and recent career experience.
3. INTERVIEWER: “WHAT WOULD THE PERSON WHO LIKES YOU LEAST IN THE WORLD SAY ABOUT TOP”
