1. What are your weaknesses?
Do your research and be ready with an answer what the particular company is looking for in a new hire. Shape you answer into a story about how you’ve worked on one of your weaknesses and turned it into a growing strength. If you can tie this growing strength to one of the skills needed for the job you’re going after, you’ll really ace the answer to this question.
2. Why do you want to work here?
To answer this, or the closely related “What is you ideal work environment?” question, research the company’s mission statement as well as any positive news you can find about the company ahead of the interview.
3. Where do you see yourself in five years?
This question is often asked by employers who are looking for a sense of commitment from candidates. You need to answer in a way that makes clear that your goals align with the company’s and that you hope to grow in ways that align with the job you are currently seeking. If you don’t see yourself at the company you’re interviewing at in five years, don’t mention it! Focus instead on the type of role you want to be in five years down the road.
