Here at Job Journey, our readers tell us they want help answering the toughest interview questions. That’s why we created the Answering the Interview Question eBook. Here are a few highlights to help with your interviews this year. Tell Me About Yourself When an interviewer asks about this, they don’t usually want to hear about your favorite color or what TV show you’re binging at the moment. Instead, you want to keep things professional.
