What tips do you have for doing well in a job interview?
I'm just curious. I hear that being too honest sometimes is not good but giving the employers things to make them want to know more about you is encouraged. I have also heard that rattling off too much of what you know about a particular subject the employers ask you about is not advisable. What would you suggest with job interview questions like:
1) Tell me about yourself.
2) What are your strengths and weaknesses?
3) Why do you think you are the best candidate for the position?
Any advice would be great. Thanks in advance!
Have 3-4 case examples of your excellence memorized. Reherse them and keep them concise. When they ask questions you will be able to make the examples fit: tell us about a time you lead a team project, overcame a conflict, managed stress etc.
Trying to answer all the questions with instant memory recall could add to the rambling issue or skimping on detail.
The best advice I know of for the weakness question: you better have enough introspection to have identified it, enough courage to share it, and enough skill to have formulated a mitigating plan/workaround.
