4 Honest Questions to Prepare for When Going to Job Interviews | Allegiance

August 7, 2017 | Career Blog

It’s important that you prepare for any possible questions on your job interview. While you don’t want to come across as giving scripted answers, you also don’t want to fumble around when asked a question. Here are four questions you should think about before going to any job interview.

What Were Any Mistakes You Made?

The interviewer won’t be looking for someone who never made a mistake or experienced failure. No such person exists. What they do want to know, however, is how you deal with your mistakes and failures. Be honest about them and explain how you learned and grew from them.

What Did You Do In Situations Where You Didn’t Get Along With Management?

Don’t pretend you always got along with your superiors if you didn’t. Everyone faces situations where they disagree with others. The question is not if it happens, but what you do when such a situation arises. Explain how you resolved your disagreements in a professional manner and came to a reasonable compromise.

What Are Your Weaknesses?

If an interviewer asks you what your greatest weakness is, they want to see how honest you are about yourself. Explain what you think your greatest weakness is, but don’t spend too much time explaining that weakness. Instead, spend more time explaining how you overcame your weakness and what you do to fix it.

Why Are You Leaving Your Current Job?

Don’t say that you are leaving because you can’t get along with your boss or team. That will put up red flags in your interviewer’s eyes. Instead, talk about positive reasons, such as the desire for a more challenging job.
