It is not enough to have solid answers for only a few interview questions. You need to be prepared for the full spectrum of questions which may be asked. Following are one hundred of the most common interview questions you are likely to encounter. Each question has a link to detailed information on why the interviewer is asking the question and samples and examples of awesome answers, both for entry level and experienced job seekers:
Don't just read these questions—practice and rehearse the answers in advance. Don't let the employer interview be the first time you actually formulate an answer in spoken words. It is not enough to think about them in your head—practice! Sit down with a friend, a significant other, or your roommate and go through all of the questions. If you have not yet completed a mock interview, do it now. Make the most of every single interview opportunity by being fully prepared!
Remember to answer each interview question behaviorally, whether it is a behavioral question or not. The easiest way to do this is to use an example from your background and experience. Then use the S-T-A-R approach to make the answer a STAR: talk about a Situation or Task (S-T), the Action you took (A) and the Results achieved (R). This is what makes your interview answer uniquely yours and will make your answer a star!
