    Starting a job search in Salt Lake City? Here are three questions you might face during your search, plus tips from our experts on how to ace your responses.

    Job Search Tips for Interview Questions

    1. Why are you leaving your current job/company?  This is one of the trickier questions to answer. On the one hand, it's good to be clear about why you're looking for a change. On the other hand, you don't want to come across as overly critical of your current employer. Instead, try to be diplomatic as possible about your reasons for leaving. Also, rather than focusing on the negatives of your current job, try to talk about why this new opportunity feels like a positive step.

    2. How would your coworkers describe you?  The easiest way to prepare for this question is to ask your coworkers directly. This can be helpful, even if you don't get asked this question during your interview. After all, your coworkers might describe you using terms that you can apply to other questions during interviews.

    3. Where do you see yourself in five years?  When interviews ask this questions, they usually want to hear two things. First, they want to know that you're in for the long haul. Second, they want to hear that you're motivated and ambitious. Usually, the safest way to answer this question is to talk about opportunities for advancement within the company.
