Tough Questions


Do You Have Answers To The Really Tough Questions?

          You likely know (or should know) which tough questions will be coming your way so prepare great responses to them now. Depending on your situation these may be questions that explore a perceived lack of experience (especially if making a career shift), questionable work history, length of time in transition or concerns about being overqualified. When responding, acknowledge their question, state you have thought about these same issues and provide your great response. Just know that an experienced interviewer has already heard all of the best canned responses and read all of the interview books so if you feed them a line they will read right through you. Always take the high road, be sincere, soulful and reflective with your answers. Give enough detail to answer the question but never give too much to bore them. Most companies will respect the discretion you show so be very wary of when and where you use names and dollars. never ever put any of this in writing. When answering tough questions, self-awareness is an important skill to possess so demonstrate your mastery of it. employers may forgive mistakes but only when you have created a desire for them to do so. Demonstrate remorse and show how you have learned from your experience(s).
