    Job Search in Austin | Express Employment Professionals Austin (South) A lot of job-seekers get jittery when it comes to the interview stage of the job search. At Express Employment Professionals Austin (South), we can help you get over those jitters. We can make sure you showcase your professional potential and stand out to interviewers. 

    It helps to have more context: you've already passed the resume stage, which is great. It shows you likely have the right skills and qualifications on paper for the job. The interview stage is the point where both you and an interviewer are assessing how you'll fit into a workplace. 

    Let's review some common-and tricky-interview questions.

    How To Answer These 3 Common Interview Questions 

    It's always useful to know why interviewers are asking a certain question, and what they expect from you. It can make your job search in Austin, and your interview, feel a lot less fraught. Here are a few common questions you can expect, as well as some tips from our hiring experts in Austin: 

    • What's your biggest weakness?  Too many job-seekers flounder at this question, unsure of what interviewers want. Prospective employers want to see that you can evaluate yourself critically, so really take the time to identify a relevant weakness. Do be prepared to explain how you're taking steps to address this weakness, or what steps you'll take when dealing with it in your next workplace. 
    • Where do you see yourself in five years?  Job-seekers often wonder how specific to be, or how vague. The reality is, employers want to know how you've set goals for yourself. They also want to make sure you won't get too bored in this position, while making sure you don't stagnate, either. Identify a few areas where you want to improve, or think about practical, realistic achievements you'd like to have by then.  
    • Do you have any questions for us?  Often, job-seekers skip right by this question. It often arrives at the end, so it can feel like an afterthought. In fact, it's a perfect opportunity to assess whether this job is the right fit for you. Ask about some challenges of the role, or what achievements are expected in the first few months. Ask about the day-to-day responsibilities, so you can get greater clarity on those.
