The 10 Most Common Job Interview Questions And How To Answer Them

Interviews are difficult, there’s no denying that. In fact for some people, they’re downright terrifying.

I’ve been in the recruitment industry for nearly 20 years, and I’ve seen people get paralysed at the prospect of sitting in front of someone that they don’t know, desperately trying to say the right thing that could in turn mean that they get a truly life-changing opportunity.

In truth, success in any interview is entirely down to how much preparation you put in. I’m no mathematician, but it wouldn’t surprise me if success in an interview is directly proportional to the number of hours you’ve spent researching for it.

From my experience, the biggest problem people have is not knowing how to go about their research.

And taking that even further forward, how to prepare answers for questions they’re going to get asked, and that’s because generally, people don’t know what they’re going to get asked.

So the purpose of this video, and the Interview Academy in general, is to dispel any myths and to give you all the tools you need to ace every interview you attend, to know the questions you’re going to get asked in advance, and have brilliant planned answers at your disposal so that you can position yourself as the best person for the job.
