I’m not sure if I linked an article I wrote entitled “Don’t let a denial stall your job search.” It was about how I was denied a position at the company I really want to work for and the position that I want to be my career.
While we unfortunately can’t read minds, we’ll give you the next best thing: a list of the 31 most commonly asked interview questions and answers.
While we don’t recommend having a canned response for every interview question (in fact, please don’t), we do recommend spending some time getting comfortable with what you might be asked, what hiring managers are really looking for in your responses, and what it takes to show that you’re the right man or woman for the job.
Take a look at these questions and other articles helpful to job seekers. Good luck, friends!
Today, I have a callback interview at a company that is trustworthy, the largest and oldest bank in DE Valley, and almost 200 years old. They also have a heavy presence in the community; the company has programs for students K-12, the homeless, and more.
After hearing back from an employer I interviewed with that I did notget the job. Of course, this saddened me. Honestly, it pretty much depressed me for days. But I didn’t want to dwell on it. So I wrote an article addressing this on LinkedIn. Here’s a sneak peak.
“We’ve all been there. Excelled in your phone interview, displayed confidence in your on-site interview, and showed the company that you were the right fit and you were excited to continue on in the application process.
And then it happens. Be it a polite phone call or an email. “We have chosen to pursue another candidate/applicant”. It stings. When you thought all your ducks were in a row, you’d aced all the important interview questions and asked some of your own.”
