Tips for a Successful Job Interview

  • Tell me about yourself... 
  • (Your answer should contain much more about your job skills than your personal life.) 
  • Talk about the growth of your career, what you learned from previous employment or even things like how your volunteer worked help you develop your organizational, time management and leadership skills.
  • What are your strengths?
  • (If you really enjoy new challenges and tackle them in an organized manner, this would be a useful strength in almost any situation.)  
  • You can talk about your ability to find unique solutions to problems.  Be prepared with some concrete examples, since that may be the follow-up question.
  • What are your weaknesses?
  • (A "good" weakness might be that you have trouble leaving the office behind when you go home in the evenings.)  
  • This is a very difficult question that is not asked often, but it's one you should prepare for anyway.  If you talk about your temper, your tendency to gossip or the fact that you're lazy, you may as well pack up and go home right then.  If you mention a weakness such as your lack of patience with people who don't do their share of the work, you should also mention that you keep this impatience to yourself and try very hard not to express it toward others.
But more than anything, don't feel nervous!
