    How to Answer Common Interview Questions

    To have a successful interview, it's important that you take the time to prepare to answer tough questions. Interviewers across industries often ask the same questions to get to know candidates and assess their suitability for the job. Here are three of those common questions and our tips for crafting a response that puts you in the best light: 

    1. Tell me a bit about yourself.  This non-question may catch you off guard because it is so open-ended. That's why it's always a good idea to have a quick pitch ready that covers a brief account of your professional history and goals. There's no need to go into detail as you answer. Just give the interviewer a sense of who you are as a person as well as a quick summary of your professional background.
    2. What are your strengths?  Avoid giving a general list of qualities and instead come prepared with some concrete examples of your strengths. For example, if you believe you're a good leader, describe a time in which your leadership was key to the success of your team.
    3. Why should I hire you?  This is a great question to test your knowledge of the company and your fit with its culture. If you want to impress the interviewer, explain why you believe you would make a seamless addition to the company culture and provide some metrics of past accomplishments that highlight how you could contribute to the company achieving its goals.
