Important Interview Questions and Your Answers

  • At the Beginning of the interview, after the hand shake and pleasantries say “…you know, I haven’t interviewed in a long time.. if everything goes well today, what is the next step?”
  • At the End of the interview when asked “do you have an questions of me or about the company?” Ask: “What is the number One thing I can do when I start here, to relieve your immediate workload?”
  • Note: a favorite method I use to remember all these is take a Steno pad in the interview with you with the answers to the questions already written out. A “cheat sheet” if you will, except in an interview there is no such thing as cheating. The Steno pad method works well, especially under pressure, you won’t forget anything. It is also good for taking your own notes – in many ways you are discreetly interviewing the company as well.

“KnockOut” Questions

Skilled managers know exactly what kind of information they are after, and they are skilled at getting it. Among their most deadly weapons are “knockout” questions designed to quickly separate the prospects from the washouts. Here is a sample of some of the most grisly questions and how to handle them.
