Preparing for a job interview can be intimidating. What should you wear? Will you be able to find the place? How early should you arrive? But probably the most terrifying concern of all is “What questions will they ask?”.
3 Important Interview Questions
Bernard Marr wrote a great article on LinkedIn that can help take some of the stress out of preparing for your next interview. He contends that most interviewers are really only trying to establish answers to 3 key questions:
- Have you got the skills, expertise and experience to perform the job?
- Are you enthusiastic and interested in the job and the company?
- Will you fit into the team, culture and company?
Aside from that one oddball interview we’ve all had, most interviewers truly want to get a sense of who you are, why you want the job, and how you’ll fit in. They may come at each of these questions from a variety of angles, but all paths of inquiry really lead back to these essential issues.
To learn more about what’s behind each of these questions as well as the ways an interviewer may ask them, check out Bernard’s article here.
