Job Interview Tips (5 Unasked Interview Questions You Must Answer)
You’ve probably read all kinds of advice about how to respond to the 100 most commonly asked job interview questions. Guess what: Hiring managers have already received those same answers a thousand times before from other candidates. They can spot a canned response before you can finish its first sentence, and they are not impressed.
Of course it is important to prepare responses to questions that can be anticipated like “Tell me about yourself,” “What are your key strengths and weaknesses?” and others. To be successful, however, you need to go well beyond this and reframe the interview. Don’t view it as a test requiring correct answers, but rather as an opportunity for you to understand and address the hiring manager’s silent concerns better than any of your competitors.
