Then PREPARE YOURSELF! ... Job Interviews are tricky. They're going to be asking you for specific examples. They're going to be asking you for details, including names of people, dates, and outcomes ...
They'll ask you about lengthy projects you've been involved in — how your role evolved, how you handled deadlines, how you handled pressures and difficult personalities. They are going to be testing you. — Are you ready for their tough questions?
What you are about to discover here are over 177 MODERN, TRUST-BUILDING, FAITH-GENERATING, TOTALLY PERSUASIVE Job Interview Answers designed for today's savvy Hiring Managers and complex business world.
"I have been in the staffing business for 17 years, but your information on how to frame responses to questions gave me the confidence I needed to get *myself* a job! ... I also liked the behavior-based interview questions section — this is a technique that resurfaces over and over and it's important to be prepared for it. I will send my candidates to your site — it's great!" — Gina Padilla, Senior Corporate Recruiter » Read All Reviews
How would you respond? ...
Each interview question begins with a discussion then offers an easy-to-follow formula for coming up with your own winning answers — based on your own personal work experience. Then several word-for-word example answers are given for you to choose from to answer the question. There are over 80 interview questions covered in the Guide, with 177 convincing and professional sample answers that work for any type of job.
STRATEGY: This is a problem solving question that tests your critical thinking skills. This is a great question for showing that you are a creative and capable problem solver. The problem you select to use as an example should be as similar as possible to a problem that you are likely to face at the job you are interviewing for.
• Here's the proven formula:  (read this carefully)
"Sure, at my last job we had a problem where the situation was "X" ... the action I took was "Y" ... and the positive outcome was "Z" ... I was commended by Susan in Accounting for solving the problem and cutting costs about 15% for that project. I think that's the type of experience you are looking to bring to your team ... isn't it?"
• Learn how to cite specific numbers you contributed to achieving.
The Guide shows you several ways of coming up with these numbers based on your own work experience — It's as easy as fill in the blanks, and so powerful in your interview! — Learn to create statements like this:
"I think my experience with [Company XYZ] in [cutting costs 30% / saving 20 man-hours of work per week / increasing revenue by 14% / getting the job done about 50% faster / helping customers 20% more of the time] is the type of experience that will help me succeed in this role. Plus my strengths in [industry knowledge / time management / teamwork / special skill] make me a strong candidate." (Don't be bashful — You've gotta say stuff like this!)
... then get them to agree with you:
"You would agree that having this type of experience would probably help me succeed in this position ... wouldn't you?"
"Would that type of problem-solving experience be relevant to this job?"
Here's a more fully formed example answer to the above question:
"When facing problems on the job I try to take a systematic approach. I think it's important to clarify the problem first before you start coming up with possible solutions, or wasting other people's time. I also try to think about the best possible outcome, or what I want the result to be. FOR EXAMPLE, when I was at Job "X" ... (use one of your S.T.A.R. Statements here) ... and the result was a 15% increase in cost-savings for that project. What kinds of challenges are you as a manager currently facing in your department? ... What could the ideal candidate do to help solve this problem in their first couple months on the job?"
See how you followed up your answer with a great question about THEIR needs? ... Smart.
STRATEGY: This question reveals a lot about you. You want to indicate that what you liked best about your last job are things that will appeal to the Hiring Manager. Show that your last job allowed you to demonstrate many of the positive and desirable Behavioral Competencies that are discussed at the beginning of the Guide. Give specific examples of how your last job allowed you to flex your skills and show your maturity. When answering about what you liked least, keep it short and do not be negative.
"What I liked about my last job was the fact that there was good on the job training. I was able to really develop my "X" skills, which I know will help me succeed here if I am fortunate enough to be able to join your team. What are the qualities and skills of the people who have been most successful at this company?"
"One thing I liked about my last job was that it allowed me to develop my project management skills ... FOR EXAMPLE, I was put in charge of a project where I had to earn the "buy-in" of people from multiple different departments — and I had all the responsibility for getting this project completed on time but no real authority over my teammates. I was successful because I first created a project vision statement that the team agreed on. Then day-to-day I made sure that each team member completed their work on time. I did this in most cases by appealing to my teammates' own self-interests. FOR EXAMPLE ... "
"What I liked least about my last job was that the management style was pretty hands off, and this was fine for me because I am self-motivated and work hard to achieve. But the lack of structure sometimes allowed some of my teammates to slack off from time to time — and I often ended up having to pick up the extra work. I had to constructively approach my manager and let her know what was going on WITHOUT creating any friction between me and my co-workers. In the end, it worked out well, because I was pro-active. Have you ever run into that type of situation as a manager?"
STRATEGY: Show that you are able to learn from your mistakes, but don't offer up any negative examples concerning your past performance. Show that you have been successful, but that you have the maturity it takes to examine your own behavior so that you can learn and grow and be a better employee. Be brief.
"Good question. Well, I have been successful at every job I have had, but I have had the normal ups and downs. I'd say that I do actively try to monitor the quality of my work so that I can constantly be improving myself. FOR EXAMPLE, I have had one or two hiccups with customers where their satisfaction was not where I thought it was. I learned that I have to really monitor certain difficult customers closely and "take their temperature" so I can keep their satisfaction level as high as possible. Have YOU had any customers like that here?"
STRATEGY: This is a "behavioral interviewing" style of question. The Hiring Manager wants to learn more about your thought process, and how well you can form examples to answer this teamwork related question. You will want to show your ability to solicit ideas from others, listen carefully, and persuade people to your point of view.
"Working with others allows you data-mine other people's skills and experiences, and get perspectives and ideas that you would not have on your own, AND check the quality of your own work before it goes out the door. FOR EXAMPLE, at Job "X" I worked with many great people. I was able to "pick their brains" — so to speak — about the effectiveness of various techniques, and get estimates on how long it would take to get various things done, etc. — I would not have been able to do my job as effectively without them."
"Would that type of experience be relevant to this job? ... Great! ... So when do I start? ..." (don't be afraid so throw some humor in if it's going well!)
"Well, I have worked both independently and as a member of team, throughout my career. I enjoy both, and I can do both equally well. I will have to say, though, that working with others has often produced great results for projects I have worked on — specifically when it comes to brainstorming. When it's appropriate, I try to get the key stakeholders involved in coming up with new solutions. I did that a lot at Job 'ABC'. FOR EXAMPLE ... and the OUTCOME was a roughly 30% increase in cost-savings for the company, and a significant decrease in the time it took to get that process done."
STRATEGY: You'll want to be very specific here, and frame your answer in terms of how you saved time and money. Use your personal "metrics of success" — these are simple numbers you write down and remember before the interview; like the hours of time you saved by your smart decisions, and the dollar amounts of revenue or cost-savings you generated. Remember, the Guide shows you how to make these up, giving you fill-in-the-blanks templates for creating your own "metrics of success" numbers based on your past work experience — and it works for ANY type of job history. This is a MUST HAVE for your interview. Please be prepared with this!
"Well, my role was ongoing and it required a lot of communication and teamwork with my team as well as the client. I think my role really was to clarify the scope of the project, and then "manage the client's expectations." We were able to deliver on time, and the client was thrilled! I was able to make sure no time was wasted on adding unnecessary features. and since we were working on a fixed bid price, we saved my company time and money. I estimate I contributed to a cost savings of about $20,000 on that project. My manager and everybody on my team felt great because the project went so smoothly ... Is that the kind of experience that would help me be successful here?"
"My role in the success of our last big project was contributing to [cutting costs 30% / saving 20 man-hours of work per week / increasing revenue by 14% / getting the job done about 50% faster / helping customers 20% more of the time]. I was able to achieve this by using my [industry knowledge / time management & planning / teamwork / special skills] ... FOR EXAMPLE ..."
STRATEGY: Workplace stress is an issue for everyone. Don't pretend that you never get stressed out. You want to show that you can deal with stress and cope with difficult situations. Show that you are calm under pressure, and know how to avoid stress in the first place through planning and time management.
"Well I think it's important to remember that stress effects everyone, and it's inevitable that sometimes people are going to have bad days. But what I do personally is plan ahead and try to manage my time as best as possible. If something happens, I try to control my response to a situation. You can't always control what happens to you, but you CAN control your own response. What I try to do is lengthen the time between the stressful situation and my response ... Would you say it is a stressful environment here? ... I see. I'm sure I can handle it. I have been tested like that before ... FOR EXAMPLE ...."
"For example, on several occasions I have had to deal with very irate customers who actually yelled at me. What I did was stay calm and not let them get under my skin. I really tried to listen and decide exactly what it was that was at the root of their problem. Then I provided solutions that could be completed within a specific time-frame. I always find it's best to face those types of situations head-on and be objective about them. I do my best to be professional and not get my emotions involved. Does that make sense? ... I hope I've answered that question to your satisfaction?"

"Bob, your Job Interview Questions and Answers worked like a charm! I asked the interviewer if they would agree with me about XYZ, and I used the phrase that pays: 'Did I answer that question sufficiently for you?' All I heard was Yes, Yes, Yes.

Your ideas are fresh and I've tried them — THEY WORK!" — Tia Aguilar MBA, Account Executive, Insurance » Read All Reviews
