Before you go to an interview, ask who you’ll be meeting with and what the structure of the interview will be. Will you be given any skill assessments, or will you need to prepare a presentation? While you can’t know every detail, arming yourself with knowledge will help you prepare mentally for what’s coming and give you some peace of mind.
There are various interviewing methods and they differ greatly between industries and even companies. Most interviews contain a combination of questions from different styles so it’s good to be familiar with them all. The best thing you can do to prepare is to understand each kind and its intention.
Three of the most commonly asked standard interview questions are:
- Tell me about yourself.
- Why are you here today?
- Where do you see yourself in five years?
