Common Interview Questions

Practice, practice, practice! It's true the more you prepare for the interview the more successful the interview will be. Preparing will benefit you in many ways, such as:

  • build confidence

  • develop a mental script to interview questions

  • practice personal brand

  • check non-verbal body language

  • prepare appropriate dress

  • print out resume

  • gather references

  • if it's an in-person interview, drive to the location the day before to map out the drive and parking. If the interview is online, then set up a quiet space with a neutral background.
