Hi, everyone. I'm Brian Krueger with CollegeGrad.com and this is The Job Search Minute. Here’s another tough interview question, “how has your education prepared you for your career?” This is a very broad question, and you need to focus in on the behavioral examples in your educational background, which specifically align to the required competencies for the career. An example, “my education is focused on not only learning the fundamentals, but also on the practical application of the information learned within those classes. For example, I played the lead role in a class project where we gathered and analyzed best practice data from this industry. Let me tell you about the results.” Focus on behavior examples supporting the key competencies for the career. Then ask if they would like to hear more examples.
