questions that they’ll ask. Now whether you agree with the effectiveness of
these questions is a different story. Nonetheless, preparing your responses to
commonly asked interview questions ahead of time will give you more confidence in

land you a job offer and here’s the cool thing, I have a separate video on each of
the questions I’m about to share with you that goes into more detail. So if
you’re interested in learning even more about these questions ,I’ll link all of
the videos up below but if you’re here for just a quick rundown, then you’re in
the right place. Here’s the key to doing well in almost any interview question.
You want to develop some type of compelling story around the question
that shows some type of quantifiable result. So let’s jump into it. Question
number one, tell me about yourself. Now this is by far the most popular
interview question because almost every interviewer will ask it. This question is
asked to get a sense of your personality to see if you’ll be a good fit for the
company. It will potentially be the first question you’re asked in your interview
to get the ball rolling. The key to doing well with this question is to tell a
captivating story about your professional life. Not your personal life.
Organize your story into parts. You want to start with where you are now in
your career, how you got to where you are and how the current position aligns with
your goals and aspirations. Question number two, why should we hire you?
Interviewers ask this question because they want to know what sets you apart
from everyone else they are interviewing. Why are you special? Why are you
different? To properly answer this question, you need to understand the
company’s pain points and be able to communicate how you can help them solve
those problems. To find out what problems the company is facing, thoroughly review
the job posting to find out why they’re hiring for this position in the first
place, then match your skills your expertise and your accomplishments with
those key items and develop your response. Question number three, what are
your weaknesses? Interviewers are asking this question because they want to gauge
your personality and character. They want to know what your self-awareness level
is. Pick a few common reasonable weaknesses that don’t directly relate to
the position and discuss what you’re doing to overcome the weakness or what
you’ve done in the past to overcome it. The key to doing well with this question
is to keep it positive, keep it in the past and be honest about it.
Question number four, what are your strengths? This question might seem
fairly easy to answer, but it’s a little more complex than you think. The reason
interviewers ask this question is because they want to see if your
strengths and accomplishments align with the position. To do well with this
question pick a few strengths that go hand-in-hand with the skills, the
experience and the qualifications the position requires. For example, if the
position requires someone with the ability to manage large complex teams,
make sure you go back to a time in your work history or your experience that
shows you can do just that. So you could say something like,
“one of my strengths is the ability to handle and direct large teams with
multiple tasks” and then you would go into a story that talks more about how
you did that. Question number five, why do you want to work here? This question is
asked because the interviewer wants greater insight into your goals and your
intentions. Before your interview, list the reasons why you want to work for the
company and what inspires you about the position or the company. Also be very
specific with your response. You don’t want to respond with something like “I
want to work here because, simply I need a job” or “I want to work here because I
can’t pay my rent every month.” Rather, develop an answer that shows you will be
a valuable contribution for the company and that shows you’ve done your research
and you know what the position entails and you know what the company is like
and I have a bonus for you. Most likely you will be asked a behavioral interview
question. A behavioral interview question is something like “give me an example of…”
or “describe a situation where…” or “tell me about a time when…” Interviewers ask this
question because they want to determine your past problem-solving experience.
This helps them decide if moving forward you’ll be able to help them solve
problems in the future. The key to doing well here and I
mentioned this earlier, is to tell a story. Now the cool thing about
behavioral interview questions is that you can use what’s called
the star format for your answer. The S stands for situation and the T stands
for task. This will be the beginning of your story. This is where you’re going to
describe the situation or the event that brought about the challenge. A stands
for action. This will be the middle of your story. Use this as a time to explain
what actions you took to solve the problem. R stands for result. This is
the end of your story and this is where you’ll explain the results you achieved
from solving the problem. Now remember, I created a video on each of
these questions that goes into even more detail than what I shared with you today.
I’ll go ahead and link all of those videos up below. To land that job offer,
