Ask an Interview Expert


Example: Tell me about yourself?
Before Answer:
"What would you like to know?"

Our Comments on her Answer:
This shows a lack of preparation and self-awareness. You should know from the job description what the employer is looking for in a candidate. Your answer should demonstrate how you have those exact skills.

Our Suggested Answer:
"I have a degree in Computer Science and I have 3 years of experience in software development. I have taken on projects of progressively increasing scope and responsibility."

Example: What are your weaknesses?
Before Answer:
"I'm a perfectionist."

Our Comments on his Answer:
Trying to present a strength as a weakness is an easy to see through ploy. An interviewer will likely not see this as an adequate answer. It is best to focus on a weakness of modest size that is not central to the job and for which you are working towards improving.

Our Suggested Answer:
"I am not as strong with QuickBooks as I would like so I am reading a book on this software so that I can improve my skills in this area."

Example: Do you have any questions for me?
Before Answer:
"No, you explained everything quite well."

Our Comments on his Answer:
You are missing a good opportunity to find out more about this job and to show your enthusiasm.

Our suggested Answer:
"Can you tell me about the reporting structure? Can you tell me a little about the other people in the department I will be working in?"
