The Big Interview Questions

There’s 3 types of questions you must prepare before you attend an interviewthat will put you in a good position to be successful:

1: A question about something the interviewer has told you.
Show that you have listened and taken an interest in what has been said. Ask a question that will give you the opportunity to show your experience in the best light.

2: A question about something you haven’t been told but uncovered through researching the company. This shows you have prepared and done your research.

3a) What the next step will be.
b) What the timetable will be.
c) What reservations they have about you.

The last one takes a bit of courage, but gives you the opportunity to overcomeany concerns theymay have. If they have none, ask for the next step.

    When I hired call center reps a few years ago, my partner used #1. So within 10 minutes, we knew whether someone had the listening skills to do the job. Interviewing successfully is not always what the candidate says, but what the candidate does not say.
