Interview Questions

Your goal during an interview is to convince the employer that you are the best candidate for the job. In order to accomplish this, you must be able to clearly and articulately convey that you have the specific skills and strengths for which the employer is looking. The best way to increase your likelihood of effectively responding to interview questions is through advanced preparation. Before an interview, you should prepare your responses to standard interview questions and practice speaking them out loud. If you can, do a mock interview with a Steinbright staff member or with family or friends. Below are some frequently asked interview questions that you can refer to while preparing for interviews.

Illegal Interview Questions

Questions that can and cannot be asked during the interview phase of the recruitment process are determined by federal and state laws. The reason these laws are in place is to ensure that the interviewer does not obtain personal background information on the candidate that could be used to bar them from employment. The purpose of an interview is for an employer to assess a candidate based on the skill sets and aptitudes required to sufficiently perform the job, not to obtain personal information unrelated to the job duties and responsibilities. Explore the following sections to learn about illegal interview courses in the United States, examples of illegal questions, and what to do, both in the moment and afterwards, if you are asked questions of a potentially illegal nature.

If you are a Drexel student and feel you have been asked inappropriate questions during an interview, it is important to contact the Steinbright Career Development Center after your interview. Steinbright works closely with Drexel's Office for Institutional Equity and Inclusive Culture and the Counseling Center who provide support to students facing issues relating to harassment, bias, and discrimination.

It is illegal for an employer to ask about the following courses during an interview: age, race, ethnicity, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, pregnancy status, marital status, or citizenship status.

Illegal Interview courses and demo Questions

The following courses are illegal for an employer to ask about during an interview. We've included a few examples for each category.


  • How old are you?
  • How long have you been working?


  • You have a unique look. What are you?
  • What race do you identify as?


  • You have an accent. Where are you from?
  • Where are your parents from?


  • What is your religion?
  • Are you practicing?


  • Are you planning to have children?
  • Is this your maiden name?

Gender Identity

  • We've always had a man/woman do this job. How do you think you will stack up?
  • Are you going to be comfortable working with a bunch of women?

Citizenship Status

  • Where were your parents born?
  • I detect an accent, where are you from?

Marital Status

  • Have you ever been married before?
  • What is life at home like for you?

Pregnancy Status

  • How many kids do you have?
  • Are you thinking about having children anytime soon?

Disability Status

  • Do you have any medical conditions we should know about?
  • Have you ever been diagnosed with a mental illness?

Sexual Orientation

  • What is your sexual orientation?
  • I noticed you don't wear a ring. Do you have a husband/wife?
  • Do you live with anyone?

What should I do if I am asked a question during an interview that feels inappropriate or potentially illegal?

How do you respond in the moment?

  • You can choose to answer the question if you are comfortable doing so and believe it was asked naively.
  • You can take control of the question, for example, an answer to "You have a unique look. Where are you from?" could be answered by saying, "I've lived a few places in my life, but I am legally allowed to work in the U.S., if that's what you're asking."
  • You can ask why the question is relevant to the job and/or simply decline to answer

Who can you contact after the interview if you choose?

  • You may contact your Co-op Advisor or any trusted Drexel staff or faculty for guidance. Please keep in mind that most Drexel employees except for religious representatives and counseling center staff are mandated reporters, which means that they must inform Drexel's Equity and Inclusive Culture (EIC). While what you report will stay confidential within the EIC office, they will contact you for follow up. Mandated reporters will keep the conversation confidential outside of the EIC report.
  • You may contact EIC directly, as well as Drexel's Counseling Center. EIC is responsible for ensuring that the University complies with its own policies and with federal, state and local laws prohibiting discrimination and harassment based upon race; color; religion; gender; pregnancy; national origin; age; disability; sexual orientation, identity, and expression; and veteran status. In addition to investigating complaints, EIC utilizes various conflict resolution processes to address complaints of discrimination, harassment and retaliation. The Counseling Center offers free, confidential counseling services provided by mental health professionals to currently enrolled full-time undergraduate and graduate students.

Questions for the Interviewer

Most interviewers will conclude by asking "Do you have any questions for me?" The interviewer will expect you to have questions prepared and will use these questions to gauge your interest in and understanding of the job. Asking thoughtful and specific questions about the job and company will demonstrate to the interviewer that you are serious about the position. Conversely, if you do not ask questions you appear uninterested.

Also keep in mind that the interview is your opportunity to learn more about the position in order to determine if it is a good fit for you. Be sure to ask questions that will enable to you fully understand the scope of the job, so that you can make an informed decision about working for the company.

The following list contains appropriate questions for candidates to ask in the initial job interview. This list is by no means exhaustive; you should develop your own questions during the course of your research on the company. Ask specific questions based on your research of the company: growth plans, competitors, new products, and research, etc.

  • What type of training programs do you have?
  • How long is the training period?
  • What does the training consist of?
  • How and when will my performance be evaluated?
  • What can I do between now and the start of the position so that I am prepared to hit the ground running?
  • What is unique about your company?
  • Can you describe the company's basic management philosophy?
  • What is the organizational structure above and below this position?
  • Do you hire co-op students from cycle to cycle?
  • What percentage of your co-ops become full-time employees upon graduation?
  • In your opinion, why is this a good place to work?
  • What has your career progression been within this company?
  • If I excel in this job, would I have the opportunity to increase my job duties and responsibilities?
  • What would make an employee stand out as "exceptional" in this job?

Avoid asking questions that makes you appear to be more interested in what you can get from the company than what you can offer them. Also avoid questions whose answers you could have easily found for yourself if you had put any effort into researching the company. Some courses to avoid include:

  • Salary
  • Benefits
  • Vacation or time off
  • Information that could be found via online research or in the job description

VMware employees in end-user computing and security believe Broadcom may divest their units after it closes its $61 billion deal
  • Broadcom plans to acquire VMware for $61 billion, and they're preparing to close the deal this year.
  • Workers in end-user computing and Carbon Black security think their units could be spun out or sold.
  • Broadcom has a history of selling off some business units in its acquisitions, such as Symantec.

Broadcom's upcoming $61 billion acquisition of VMware has led employees in two units — end-user computing and Carbon Black security — to speculate that their units could be spun out or sold.

VMware and Broadcom announced the deal last year, and the close date was recently pushed back from May to, at the earliest, the end of August or as late as around Thanksgiving as regulators pore over the deal, VMware said in a accurate Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

Broadcom has a history of slicing and dicing the targets of its major acquisitions. For instance, after Broadcom's $18.9 billion acquisition of CA Technologies in 2018, it sold off its Veracode product to the private-equity firm Thoma Bravo. Likewise, after its $10.7 billion purchase of the cybersecurity giant Symantec in 2019, it sold off the firm's Cyber Security Services business to Accenture and the enterprise-consulting team to HCL Technologies.

"We continue to expect the deal to close in Broadcom's fiscal year 2023," a VMware spokesperson said in a statement. "Meanwhile, we continue to operate as a standalone company, supporting our customers and partners and delivering across all of our businesses, in line with our company goals and our transformation to a subscription and SaaS business."

The future of EUC

Employees in the end-user-computing unit said they'd seen several clues that made them wonder about its future. The EUC unit builds products such as Horizon and Workspace One that allow users to access their enterprise applications from anywhere over the cloud.

During an EUC team meeting in November, the unit's head, Rob Ruelas, acknowledged the unit wasn't important for Broadcom and dodged a question on whether the group was staying with VMware, a former employee said. 

"If the head of a division says they don't know, that means something will happen," the former employee said.

What's more, EUC organizations have been recently reorganized to be under EUC leaders, rather than integrated with other VMware teams under VMware leaders. Previously, the EUC-solutions engineering team was under VMware's digital-solution-engineering director, John Ryan, and it's now reporting to Sarah Swatman, a senior director of digital workspace, which is part of EUC. 

The EUC sales team was previously under Angus McGeachie, VMware's digital-sales senior director who left the company in July. Now it's under Chris Rottner, the director of EUC digital sales in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

The former employee said it seemed that the company was reorganizing the EUC unit to be more independent of the rest of the company. 

And if EUC does stay with Broadcom, there may be a culture clash when it comes to remote work.

"One of the things that bothers a lot of EUC, especially their salespeople, is how do you square that you're coming in here and talking about customers and users who are demanding to work remotely and work from home," an employee said. "How are you demanding that when the company you now work for, Broadcom, is return to office?"

The future of Carbon Black

Three employees told Insider that because Carbon Black — the cybersecurity company VMware bought in 2019 for $2.1 billion — offered products competitive with Symantec's, they wondered whether their unit could be spun out into an independent company or sold.

One reason for their belief is that Carbon Black's operations still have not fully integrated with VMware. After Carbon Black was acquired, it was supposed to take a year or two to get integrated with VMware. But it's "kind of been in limbo," one employee said.

While the product has been integrated to work with VMware flagship products such as vSphere, not all of Carbon Black's operations have been merged with the parent company. For instance, this unit still has separate Salesforce and support systems from the rest of the company, the employee added.

"I think it's safe to say that it has been a slower process than we anticipated," that employee said.

"To me, the writing is on the wall," another employee said. "They might sell off Carbon Black because they have Symantec, which is a duplicate."

Still, other employees at Carbon Black are taking a wait-and-see attitude.

"My feelings are I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt," one employee said of Carbon Black. "There's the possibility that we could be spun off. There's the possibility that we could be sold to another company. There's the possibility that we could stay with Broadcom."

If Broadcom keeps the security unit, these employees worry that thanks to replication with Symantec, the unit could be a target for layoffs.

Want A Successful Relationship? Answer These 3 Questions First

By Tor Constantino

Nearly 15 years ago the company I worked for brought in motivational speaker and former college football coach Lou Holtz to deliver the keynote at our national sales meeting. Prior to his induction into the College Football Hall of Fame, Holtz had amassed a winning record of 249-132-7 with five different college programs.

During his keynote speech, Holtz discussed three questions that contributed to his success as a coach relating to his players, and he told us that those same questions need to be answered to build successful sales relationships with customers.

RELATED: 10 Undeniable Signs Of A Manipulative Man

After that sales meeting, I had forgotten completely about that speech, until this past weekend when my wife and I were going through some old boxes in the basement recently, and I found my notes from that session. Those notes sparked a useful conversation that I wish she and I would have had years ago.

What I didn’t realize when I first heard Holtz’s message was that those same questions he shared all those years ago are still relevant today and regardless of the nature of your relationship — whether professional or personal — the same questions apply.

RELATED: If Your Guy Does These 7 Things, He's Playing You For A Fool

If you want a successful relationship, ask these three questions first:

1. Can I trust you? 

One of the best analogies I've heard regarding trust is that it works like a bank account. Each time you do something to build trust, you're making a positive deposit into a relational account you both share. Each time you do something negative, you make a withdrawal from those deposits. If you do enough negative things over time toward that individual, the relationship will be bankrupt.

Each of us has to keep making positive "trust" deposits if we want our relationships to be healthy and grow.

2. Are you committed to me? 

What the other person in the relationship wants to know with this question is whether or not you're willing to provide of yourself beyond what is required, and if you will keep your word and promises you've made to them. Those little things matter.

Holtz made that point when he stressed that what you do in practice, you will end up doing in the game — and it's always game time when you're in a relationship. That's because a committed relationship is a series of much smaller commitments and promises made over time. Will you follow through on those commitments when it's inconvenient, difficult, or costly to you personally — that's what needs to be answered.

3. Do you care about me? 

Mutual caring creates connection. Whenever you can help another person understand that you genuinely care about them, you open the door to connection, communication, and interaction. When you show you care, you nurture that relationship.

The key to caring for others is putting their needs first. The trick is changing our behavior so that we get in the habit of focusing on others instead of ourselves. Within the context of a relationship, we can practice caring by setting our personal needs aside and intentionally helping the other person in small ways.

Caring requires our words and actions to be aligned and focused on the other individual in the relationship.

Getting the answers

Whether we know it or not, every one of us needs these questions answered in every one of our relationships. It doesn't matter if it's coworkers, spouses, family members, friends, or customers — we need answers to these questions for the relationship to survive and thrive.

If you don't know how to get these questions answered for yourself, you can start by answering these questions for other people that matter to you and with whom you're in a meaningful relationship. Make sure that those people who count in your life fully understand that you can trusted; that you're completely committed to them and the success of the relationship; and that you deeply care about them and their well-being.

If you go first and answer their questions, it's very likely that you'll get the answers you need. If the other individual can't answer those three simple questions—that might be the most telling answer you could ask for.

Home equity questions to have the answers to
It's important to know what to look for when considering any financial product. Andrey Popov/Getty Images

Your home equity can be a great source of funding for a wide variety of costs. By tapping into this equity by using a home equity loan or home equity line of credit (HELOC), you can finance everything from emergencies to retirement costs — often at rates much lower than other products.

But, as with any financial product, it's important to know what to look for. That's why we've outlined some important questions to ask yourself when evaluating your home equity options.

Check out today's home equity rates to see how much you could borrow.

Home equity questions to have the answers to

To get the most from your home equity, be sure to ask yourself these questions.

How much equity do you have?

How much equity you can borrow depends on how much you currently have. You can calculate your home equity by subtracting your outstanding mortgage balance from the current value of your home.

Let's say, for instance, that your original mortgage balance was $250,000. You've made $100,000 in payments, so the balance is now $150,000. Meanwhile, your home's value has gone up to $300,000. That means your home equity is $150,000 (or $300,000 minus $150,000).

You can typically borrow up to 85% of your home equity. So, in this case, you might be able to borrow up to $127,500.

If you don't need funds immediately, you may be better served by waiting until you've paid off more of your mortgage, home prices are higher or both. This will increase your home equity and, therefore, how much you can borrow.

Compare home equity options online now to find the one that's best for you.

Why do you need the funds?

While you can use a home equity loan or HELOC for any purposes, you may qualify for a tax deduction if you use it for IRS-approved home repairs and improvements.

"Interest on home equity loans and lines of credit are deductible only if the borrowed funds are used to buy, build, or substantially Excellerate the taxpayer's home that secures the loan," the IRS says. "The loan must be secured by the taxpayer's main home or second home (qualified residence), and meet other requirements."

So, if you're using a home equity loan or HELOC to make home repairs or improvements, be sure to save not only your loan paperwork but also any documentation proving how you used the funds. And consult a tax professional if you're not sure whether your planned improvements will qualify for a deduction.

When do you need the funds?

Considering when you need to access funds can help you determine whether you should get a home equity loan or HELOC.

A home equity loan is better when you need a large sum of money right now, such as to pay medical costs or consolidate debt. You'll begin paying the loan back immediately, incurring interest on the full amount of the loan. However, you'll enjoy fixed payments, which can make budgeting easier and protect you if interest rates rise.

A HELOC is better when you want ongoing access to money as needed, such as to pay for a child's college education costs. You'll have a variable interest rate, but you'll only pay interest on the amount you borrow, not the total credit line. Plus, you'll only begin repaying once the draw period ends (draw periods typically last five to 10 years).

View current home equity rates here!

The bottom line

Both home equity lines and HELOCs can be smart ways to pay for expenses using the value you've already built in your home. By asking yourself the above questions, you can determine which is better for you and make the most of your funds. Once you know the answers, take a look at our picks for the best home equity loans and HELOCs.

    [SEE: The Fastest-Growing Jobs in America.]

    1. Tell Me About Yourself

    While this may sound like an open-ended question that you can answer however you like, don’t let its simplicity fool you into disclosures that are too casual and personal. The interviewer is trying to get a sense of what kind of person you are and what you value to determine your level of professionalism and how well you would fit on the team.

    How to Answer “Tell Me About Yourself”

    You might start by focusing on who you are as a professional, since this is a job interview, after all. Tell a bit about your educational and career background and some key facts about your job history. While it’s OK (and perhaps expected) to share something that’s a little bit personal and unique to you, be careful about what exactly you reveal here. Think in terms of sharing one of your key hobbies or interests outside of work — for example, playing volleyball, cooking or volunteering. Be cautious about revealing details about your age or family status that some employers may be unintentionally biased against.

    2. How Did You Find Out About the Position?

    The employer is trying to see if one of their marketing methods reached you, or if you found out about the job through some other way.

    How to Answer “How Did You Find Out About the Position?”

    Whether you learned of the opening from a colleague, online or through a job ad, share the method with the interviewer. You may get brownie points if you happened to have learned about the job from the company’s website. If you took extra time to learn about the organization while applying, be sure to mention it.

    3. Why Are You Looking for a New Job?

    If you already have a job and are conducting a job search, the interviewer might be naturally curious as to what has prompted your desire for change.

    How to Answer “Why Are You Looking for a New Job?”

    Be careful here, as revealing a dissatisfaction with your current company, boss, or co-workers could serve as a red flag for the hiring team. Instead of complaining about grievances you may have about your current position, focus your answer on your desire for greater opportunities and career growth.

    For example, you might say: “While I’ve been excited about the opportunities I’ve had in my current position, I’m looking for a company that I can move to the next level with. I am very invested in this industry and want to be with a key industry player to further my career growth.”

    4. Why Do You Want to Work Here?

    Hiring managers use this question to try to gauge a candidate’s motives for seeking the opportunity. While your primary reason for applying may be financially motivated, this would not be the emphasis to share during the interview.

    How to Answer “Why Do You Want to Work Here?”

    Think of other reasons you chose to throw your hat in the ring at the specific organization. Maybe you like the company’s culture that you read about online, or maybe you’ve heard from current employees that they love their jobs. If so, spend some time figuring out the best words to use to explain that.

    Another good answer could tie back to your career interests. For example, if you’re a marketer applying for an entry-level marketing position, you might focus on sharing what it is about the company that makes you feel this would be the right place to develop your career skills in your field.

    5. What Interests You About This Job?

    This question may seem tricky, since you may feel you don’t know enough yet about the job as simply a candidate and not a hired hand. But you can prepare for this query in advance by doing some due diligence before your interview.

    How to Answer “What Interests You About This Job?”

    Spend at least an hour reviewing the details of the company’s job description and determining how to draw links between what the manager wants and the talents you bring to the table. You might even bring a printout of the job description to the interview to refer to specific language as you answer this question. Point out to your interviewer that you have been thinking a lot about the specific needs of the position and how your background and experiences make you the right fit for it.

    6. What Motivated You to Apply for This Role?

    Early in the interview, you may be asked about why you felt drawn to the position. If the question is phrased to determine your motivation for applying to the role, the interviewer may be trying to determine whether your interest in the role is more self-serving or if it stems from a desire to tackle tough industry challenges that can help the company.

    How to Answer “What Motivated You To Apply for This Role?”

    A smart way to answer this question is to focus on the latter. Sure, you likely have multiple reasons for wanting the job, but highlight the ones that the company cares about, such as making an impact and helping the team reach their goals, emphasizing that your interest in the company itself was a motivating factor.

    You might say something like: “At this point in my career, I have a ton of energy to solve complex problems, and our industry is at an exciting time for this. I chose to apply to your company specifically because of your industry-leading role, plus I love what I’ve heard about your culture.”

    7. What Kind of Impact Do You Hope to Have in Your Next Role?

    Hiring teams want to know what candidates can do for them, and this impact question gives you the perfect opportunity to impress them with your drive.

    How to Answer “What Kind of Impact Do You Hope to Have in Your Next Role?”

    The specific type of impact you emphasize will depend on the specific industry or job you’re applying to. But in general, you can stress that you want to build on the skills you bring to the table and that you hope to leverage your experience from your last position to help the company achieve its goals.

    For example: “One of my biggest goals that I plan to achieve with my next employer is to take all of my learnings from my career to date to create something big. The first part of my career has been about understanding as much as I can about the industry, and now I finally feel like I’m in the perfect place to have a significant impact in whatever key projects I’m working on.”

    8. What Do You Find the Most Stressful About This Type of Role?

    This is another potential minefield that you should answer with care, rather than off the cuff. Interviewers are looking for examples that suggest you handle stress well. Your goal is to show that you do know how to manage stressful situations with grace.

    How to Answer “What Do You Find the Most Stressful About This Type of Role?”

    A winning response might be: “It’s true that this role can be stressful, and I’ve certainly dealt with my share of it in previous positions. If I had to say what the biggest stressor is, I’d pinpoint timing issues. I’m a stickler for meeting deadlines and delivering to my team what I say I will — so when it comes to crunch time, I feel the pressure until I’ve crossed the finish line.”

    9. Have You Used Our Product/Service?

    You don’t want to be caught off guard by this question having not tried out the product or service that you would be working with.

    How to Answer “Have You Used Our Product/Service?”

    Knowing that this is a common interview question, you would be wise to provide the company’s tools a test drive prior to your interview, if at all possible. When trying it out, take notes about your experience and share specifics during your interview.

    10. How Would You Excellerate Our Product/Service?

    The employer wants to know specifics on the previous question and likely wants to gauge how you provide constructive feedback.

    How to Answer “How Would You Excellerate Our Product/Service?”

    It takes a bit of diplomacy to navigate your response here, since you don’t want to imply with your answer that the product or service is substandard. By coming up with a good idea here — for example, for an additional feature or other bells and whistles that customers might enjoy — you could earn points with the interviewers for your creativity.

    11. What’s Your Greatest Strength?

    The challenge of answering the standard “greatest strength” question is that you want to strike the right balance between sounding confident but not arrogant.

    How to Answer “What Your Greatest Strength?”

    The strength that you share need not be related directly to the position that you’re applying for, but should be clearly tied to an attribute that the specific employer would value.

    For example, highlighting your effectiveness working with teams and groups is something that would come in handy in most jobs, so this would be a good choice to share if it’s true for you.

    12. What’s Your Greatest Weakness?

    The best answer to this has changed over time. While the go-to response used to be to choose an area that shows your tendency to “care too much” about your job, this response has been overused. If you try it, you may receive pushback from a savvy interviewer who wants you to share a true weakness.

    How to Answer “What’s Your Greatest Weakness?”

    An effective approach is to share something legitimate that isn’t your top strength — but also share some concrete ways that you are working on improving in that area.

    13. What Do You Hope to Learn and Contribute in Your Next Role?

    This question is a variation of the “impact” question, but it’s more targeted at whether you value learning and development, and the contribution you see yourself making in the role, as opposed to what you hope to personally accomplish. Employers are looking for new hires who are eager to learn and be of service to the company.

    How to Answer “What Do You Hope to Learn and Contribute in Your Next Role?”

    You could say: “I’m always interested in learning new things about our industry, particularly in relation to my own role and self-improvement to help my team. I’m hoping to learn and ultimately master the job, and beyond that, to stay current and keep learning so I can continue to bring value. That way, I can maximize my contribution in my department and eventually, across the company.”

    14. What Would You Do in the First 30, 60 and 90 Days on the Job?

    Active listening will come in handy here. This common interview question may be hard to prepare for in advance, since details that you learn during the interview itself about the employer’s priorities may help you formulate a better, more specific answer.

    How to Answer “What Would You Do in the First 30, 60 and 90 Days on the Job?”

    If you need a refresher about any points that your interviewers have raised in terms of their priorities, or if they haven’t shared them yet, it’s fair to ask for clarification before you begin answering. Knowing what the hiring manager cares most about is key to how you should frame your plan for what you would do during your initial months in the position.

    [Phone Interview Questions to Prepare For]

    15. What Professional Achievement Are You Most Proud Of?

    While you may actually consider saving someone’s life as a lifeguard in high school to be your proudest moment on the job, don’t take this question literally unless you are actually interviewing to be a lifeguard.

    How to Answer “What Professional Achievement Are You Most Proud Of?”

    The correct approach to describing your greatest professional achievement is to hone in on the position that you’re applying for and find a relevant experience in your past career arsenal to showcase something that the hiring manager would hope to find in an employee. An equally smart strategy is to focus on a general accomplishment that would impress any employer, such as creating a tactic to increase your department’s productivity.

    16. Do You Consider Yourself to Be a Team Player? Why or Why Not?

    Be careful here, as interpreting this question too literally can backfire on you. Companies are asking this question because teamwork is essential, on some level, in most roles — even those where you’re primarily an individual contributor. If you don’t consider yourself a team player and prefer to work on your own, it’s best to be diplomatic in how you explain this. Stating your preference is one thing, but flat out saying that you aren’t a team player will backfire and provide you a red flag from most interviewers.

    How to Answer “Do You Consider Yourself to Be a Team Player?”

    If you truly hate teamwork and want to be upfront about it, try stating something along these lines: “I’m honestly an amazing individual contributor since in this role, focus is so important — but I also understand and very much value partnership and collaboration. I’m a team player when it helps everyone achieve our goals, and I’m also very self-motivated to work individually as needed.”

    17. What Would Former Co-Workers Say About You?

    When asking this question, the hiring committee is trying to gain a sense of your personality, work style and how well you work with others.

    How to Answer “What Would Former Co-Workers Say About You?”

    While not every past colleague may have reacted to you in the same way, focus on finding commonalities in how people have perceived your best assets. If it is in fact true, then you can’t go wrong with indicating that past co-workers and bosses have found you to be a dependable, trustworthy, conscientious and deadline-driven team player.

    18. What Annoys You Most About Working With Others?

    A variation of the “teamwork” question, this tricky question requires finesse. The employer may be hoping to hear about your pet peeves, or what triggers you the most about your past colleagues — but resist the urge to dish on this. As tempting as it may be to replay your worst work relationship ever, pointing out how annoying this collaboration was, this approach would be a big mistake.

    How to Answer “What Annoys You Most About Working With Others?”

    Instead, take the high road and keep your answer more general. You might say: “There are always personalities to deal with at work — nobody’s perfect and everyone has their own way of doing things. Sure, co-workers can be annoying sometimes, but I try to notice if I feel annoyed and think about where the other person is coming from. For example, the thing that used to annoy me the most was the way some colleagues didn’t use punctuation in their written communications, like emails, which made the message sound unfriendly. I later realized, though, that this is just a style preference of mine, and it didn’t necessarily reflect any negative intentions from the person who wrote the message.”

    19. How Would You Describe Your Work Style?

    Anyone considering hiring you may want to gain a basic understanding of what your work style is, so that they can determine whether that style will be a fit for the position. Work styles that many employers value are collaborative, team-oriented, detail-oriented, conscientious and supportive

    How to Answer “How Would You Describe Your Work Style?”

    There are no right or wrong answers here, though if you know something in advance about the types of qualities that this particular employer or company values, then that can help inform your response. For example, if you’re applying for a sales position, it’s more important to emphasize that you’re an energetic go-getter with people skills than if you have a work-from-home job as a graphic designer that you can do independently on your own schedule, where the work style of detail-oriented conscientiousness may be more valued by the hiring team.

    20. What Type of Manager Do You Work Best With?

    This is a very difficult question to answer when it’s being asked by a potential new boss whose working style you don’t yet know. The best approach here is to keep your comments general, so that you don’t end up describing the opposite of who the interviewer is. Another smart strategy is to express your flexibility in working with a wide range of personalities and management styles.

    How to Answer “What Type of Manager Do You Work Best With?”

    You might say: “I’ve been fortunate to work with a many different types of managers, and knock on wood, but I’ve gotten along with all of them so far! I value managers who communicate about their needs and the needs of their department, so that I can do my best to help them reach their goals. Beyond that, I think it takes time to adjust to a manager’s style, and I’m happy to work with my manager to create a productive partnership.”

    21. What Type of Work Environment Do You Thrive In?

    Much like the “type of manager” question, candidates need to step carefully when answering this one in an interview. If you end up describing the opposite work environment than the company offers, then you’ve just talked yourself out of the job. To avoid this, it’s best to frame your answer around flexibility. If you’re offered the job, then you can always explore specific setups and preferences then.

    How to Answer “What Type of Work Environment Do You Thrive In?”

    If it’s early in your interview process, an open-ended response is a safe bet: “I’ve worked in many different settings, and lots of different company cultures. I’ve found that as long as I have a supportive team and manager, and work that I love, the setting isn’t a deal breaker. I do love what I’ve learned about your company’s culture and work environment, though, and I think I would be a great fit.”

    22. Where Do You See Your Career in 3-5 Years?

    This question requires some diplomacy, since indicating that you see yourself in the hiring manager’s position might not be well-taken. It would also, in most cases, be a faux pas to share your dream of launching a startup, particularly if it’s in a different field altogether from the job for which you are currently interviewing.

    How to Answer “Where Do You See Your Career in a Few Years?”

    A more prudent answer would be to emphasize a vision of yourself making an impact in your industry and mentoring more junior members of your team as you move up the ladder.

    23. Tell Me About a Major Challenge You’ve Faced at Work and How You Overcame It

    Like with most interview questions, it’s important to tread carefully and phrase your answers in a positive way. This is particularly true with a question like this one that requires addressing difficulties. Your goal should be to share an experience that showcases your ability to persevere and move beyond obstacles without revealing details that could paint you or your colleagues in a negative light.

    How to Answer “Tell Me About a Major Challenge You’ve Faced at Work and How You Overcame It”

    While your answer will be unique to your experience, here’s a demo of how to strike this balance: “I once was faced with the challenging situation of needing to generate a key deliverable to the company’s top client in a tight timeframe that made it impossible for me to do everything I wanted. I solved this by recruiting some co-workers from a different department to lend a hand so that we could create the best product possible under the circumstances, and we ended up impressing both my boss and the client.”

    24. Tell Me About a Failure You Experienced at Work and How You Handled It

    Like the challenge question above, it can be tricky to talk about professional failures and career disappointments. But many employers will understandably want to know how you react in less than optimum circumstances, so you should be prepared to address the question of failure during your interview.

    How to Answer “Tell Me About a Failure and How You Handled It”

    When discussing missteps, always plan to end on a positive note. And avoid oversharing personal details to make your point; keep it professional and top-level rather than going into the nitty-gritty about the failure.

    Here’s a possible response, which you can tailor to your own circumstances: “At my last job, my teammate’s department had been relying on my department to collaborate on a goal they had developed independently of me. I had initially agreed to help out, but quickly realized that doing so would jeopardize my own department’s deliverables to the CEO that week, so I had to pull out of the collaboration before we’d really gotten started. This felt like a failure on my part since I wished I had pushed back initially about my limited bandwidth rather than agreeing on working together. I apologized to my colleague and she understood when I explained about my own deadlines.”

    25. Is There Anything We Should Know About You That’s Not on Your Resume?

    Again, speak carefully here … This question represents an opportunity to share something personal about yourself and make a connection with the hiring team, but avoid letting it all hang out. Managers use this question as a “get to know you,” and it’s a bit of a wild card since it’s very open ended. Your best approach is to stick with fairly neutral courses rather than go out on a limb.

    How to Answer “Is There Anything We Should Know About You That’s Not on Your Resume?”

    While your answer will be very individual based on your own interests, you might share something about either a work achievement that you haven’t had a chance to share yet, and/or a hobby or interest that helps the hiring team see you as a well-rounded person.

    Try something like this: “One thing I wanted to be sure to share is that I just joined the Marketer’s Alliance and volunteered for a committee — that just happened so it’s not on my resume yet. Also, I’m a huge gardener. I love to spend time on the weekends rebooting in the garden so that I come back fresh and ready to go, and I find it gives me great balance.”

    26. There’s a Gap in Your Employment History — Why?

    Astute managers will scrutinize your resume to see if you have a consecutive employment history, and will quickly pinpoint any gaps. If you have a gap in your resume, you need to prepare in advance to explain why you weren’t working for that period of time.

    How to Explain Gaps in Employment:

    Honesty is the best policy here, and many employers will understand that in times when the job market is tight, some candidates may have gaps in their work history. It helps if you can add some things that you did during your break from employment that facilitated your career goals, such as any volunteer work, education or training that you may have done.

    A demo answer: During that period, my entire company faced layoffs, and we had short notice about the fact. I quickly set to work on my job search and landed a position pretty quickly, but it’s true there’s a small gap in my employment history because of that. During the time that I was job hunting, I also took an online course on [add industry topic] to learn a new skill that would help in my next position.

    27. Why Should We Hire You?

    You should be prepared to respond to this classic interview query no matter what type of position you’re applying for, so it’s a good idea to prepare and practice your response to it.

    How to Answer “Why Should We Hire You?”

    If this question comes early in the meeting, use it as a chance to hit on the most relevant points of your experience and skill set, pointing out how well your background fits with the job requirements. If it arrives toward the end of the interview, then take the opportunity to recap the highlights of what you would bring to the company, as well as how you would leverage your abilities to solve the employer’s biggest problems.

    28. What Are Your Salary Expectations?

    If this is your initial interview, err on the side of caution with this question by avoiding specifics. A smart tactic is to switch the question around and ask if a salary band has been identified for the job based on your experience level and location.

    Some hiring teams save the most anxiety-producing syllabu for last: money. Some managers may be hoping that you’ll share numbers based on your prior salary, even though you aren’t obligated to do this — and it’s best to avoid doing so too early in the interview process. You’ll have more leverage as a candidate if you can get the employer to share the job’s salary band first. Otherwise, any number you put out there might end up either too low, pigeonholing you at a lower range than might have been offered, or too high, which might convince the hiring team that they can’t afford you.

    How to Answer “What Are Your Salary Expectations?”

    An answer like this can help you keep your options open, and hopefully lead to the manager being the first one to share a salary number: “That’s a great question, and I’m hoping you can help guide me on this one. Is it possible to share the range for this position?”

    If they won’t share, stay guarded and try to wrap up the discussion by saying something like, “I understand. I’d like to keep this question open to learn more about the job and your needs, and revisit it later in the process.”

    29. Do You Have Any Questions for Us?

    While you may feel like wrapping up the interview experience as soon as possible, answering with, “No, I think you’ve covered everything!” won’t impress most hiring managers. Instead, you should come prepared to ask some standard questions of the interviewers, which shows that you’re interested in learning as much as you can about the position and company.

    Some strong questions to ask include:

    — What is your favorite thing about working here?

    — What are the three biggest challenges that I would face in the position if I’m hired?

    — Would I be working directly with you, and what are the other key departments that I’d be working with?

    — What is the company culture like, and what do employees like most about it?
