Job Interview

In an interview situation, you should show your best side and promote yourself, at the same time you should be honest and try to feel comfortable in the situation. This is much to handle at once. However, if you are well prepared you will likely feel more comfortable in the interview situation.

How do I prepare?

Common questions a recruiter may ask during a job interview:

  • Can you tell a little about yourself?
  • Describe your strengths and weaknesses.
  • Where do you see yourself in five years?
  • Why did you choose to apply to our company in particular?
  • This position requires that you have many contacts with our customers and suppliers. What do you usually do to maintain your professional contacts current?
