Transcript of Review Common Interview Questions and Prepare Responses.
“I love to shop. I used to spent hours
flipping through catalogs.”
Show you accomplishments and talk about your biggest successes you've had throughout your careers.
My interest in retail marketing really started when I worked at a neighborhood boutique. I knew our clothes were amazing, but that we were not marketing them properly. So I worked with management to come up with a marketing strategy that increased our sales by 25% in a year.
What's more important to you -- the work itself or how much you're paid for doing it?
Where do you see yourself in five years?
“Relaxing on a beach in Miami,” or “Doing your job.”
There’s really no right answer to this question, but the interviewer wants to know that
you’re ambitious, career-oriented, and committed to a future with the company.
“In five years I’d like to have an even better understanding of this industry. Also, I really love working with people.Ultimately, I’d like to be in some type of managerial role at this company, where I can use my people skill and industry knowledge.
Why should I hire you?
“I’m the best candidate for the role.”
A good answer will reiterate your qualifications, and will highlight what makes you unique
“I’ve been an Executive Assistant for the past ten years – my boss has said time and time again that without me, the organization would fall apart. I’ve also taken the time to educate myself on some of the software I regularly use (but didn’t really understand the ins and outs of).
Why did you quit your last job?
"I quit my job because I finally got tired of it and it became boring."
The interviewer is not going to want to hear that you have gotten bored of your old job because they will look at you as if your not going to give the job everything you have got in you.
"I quit my job because my supervisor retired. I felt that after many years of working in the office that it was time for a change and this seem like the ideal time to move on."
What does it mean to be a good leader to you?
A good leader has the ability to have more power over other employers with a bossy attitude.
A boss should act like every other employee, but have some responsibilities without taking too much control.
The leader's role is to communicate the strategic vision with clarity.
Tell me a little bit about yourself
Tip Number 2: Review Common Interview Questions and Prepare Responses
By: Brooke, Erik and Dayhana
What have you learned from your mistakes?
" I just want to know how much I will get paid because I need the money as soon as possible."
This is a bad example because when you tell the interviewer that all you care about is money you are making yourself look needy.
"I care more about my job because the amount of money should not matter to someone when they have a successful job."
This is a good example because it shows that you honestly care about the job and will make sure you do your best which is what the interviewer is going to be looking for.
I have learned to not give everyone a second chance. That first impressions are always sincere.
First impressions matter but substance has the final word.
I used to think that there was one best solution to a problem, but I've learned that that kind of thinking limits the possibility of great success.
