Common Interview Questions

Reviewing common interview questions can be an effective part of your preparation. Instead of trying to memorize 'the best' answers you can think of, we suggest putting yourself in the position of the employer, and imagining what type of a response would impress you. Because a particular question may be phrased in any number of ways, memorizing responses to specific questions may leave you unable to generalize your personal information to an unexpected question. Your best strategy is to review such questions, and become comfortable discussing yourself and your related skills.
