So, you’ve managed to get your resume past… those burly electronic body guards (also called ATS), impressed the recruiter, and have been selected for a job interview for a position that you highly covet. What a great feeling! But that fleeting jubilation gives way to overwhelming nervousness as the interview approaches. Because of this anxiety, you may not perform at your best during the interview. Wouldn’t it be great if you could have a mulligan? Hit the rewind button? Start over? Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. But, if you master these 2 interview questions, your chances of slam-dunking the job interview go way up.

e whether you have 3 kids or 9 kids, or 5 hamsters, or a spectacular Russian nesting doll collection. While discussing your hobbies and personal interests would be a great way to answer this question if asked on Farmersonly.com (city folks just don’t get it), it’s not really appropriate for a job interview. The best way to view this question is “why should we hire you?” If you think of it that way, your answer will inevitably focus on your skills, experience, and accomplishments. After all, this is what the interviewer is really asking for! Use this question to discuss why you are the ideal candidate, and how you can fill their team’s most pressing needs. Remember to talk about the results of your work and how they correlate with the company’s primary outcomes.
