Preparing for job interviews can often feel like an impossible task. With so many potential questions that an interviewer could ask you, how can you realistically practice answering each one? The good news is that most interviews are based on a cache of basic questions that you’re almost certain to be asked in one form or another. These are questions to determine who you are, why you’re interviewing at the company, and what you will bring to the role.
“In the job interview, you are literally auditioning for a new role,” writes Cathy Salit in the Harvard Business Review. “Like any good performer, you need to practice in advance,” she says.
