Recruiting the best and brightest is an important responsibility of the Nation United management team. Only by finding and attracting highly talented people can we ensure the lasting success of our company. Therefore, we spend a lot of time learning about interviewing best practices. Here are some of the most common questions for which job searchers should prepare:
“What Made You Apply to This Position?”: Candidates who are excited about their work are almost always the most appealing to managers. So, expect to be asked about the reasons you applied. If you can demonstrate passion for the work, you will make your case all the more attractive.
“What Accomplishment Are You Most Proud Of?”: This question addresses two hiring considerations. First, your answer will describe a major achievement which will most likely be work related. Second, the accomplishment you choose to describe will reflect your priorities.
“What Are Your Career Goals?”: When hiring for the Nation United team, we want to find people who are driven and passionate. So, it is valuable to understand the goals that motivate applicants.
“What Else Should I Know About You?”: Many interviewers will conclude with an open-ended question like this. Think about the qualities and experiences you want the hiring manager to know about you. Address any that haven’t come up yet in your answer to this question.
Expect these questions the next time you interview for a job.
