Top Interview Questions You Have To Know
There's a lot that goes into preparing for an interview, but what rattles people most is the fear of answering a question poorly.
That's why our friends at Comparably put together a list of the 25 most common interview questions and advice on how to answer them. As you take a read, keep in mind that it's ok to pause and think before you answer a tough question. A hiring manager will appreciate you wanting to be thoughtful; if you rush to a canned response without much thought or sincerity, he or she may decide that you're too rehearsed.
As you study and prepare for your interview, don't forget to spend some time researching your potential new employer. Sites such as Comparably offer employee reviews on company culture as well as powerful compensation data that can help you gauge what you should be earning. Showing up to an interview well-prepared will not only ease your nerves, but position you to make a positive first impression.
