Interview … show off your past

by LynnSaid

Good questionConnect your past to your future

Lynn Howard 2014

What you’ve done in the past says a lot about what you will do in the future.   More and more companies ask questions that connect your past to your potential future with them.  You can prepare for the interview by having a great past and being ready to talk about it.

You might just get a question or request like these:

1.  Tell us about a time you really screwed up.  This is your chance to show you are aware, you take responsibility, you resolve, and you learn.

2. Tell us about a problem you would like to tackle in this company. Why and how would you pursue it?

3. Just like Mercedes and Taco Bell are brands, you are a brand. Describe yourself as a brand.

4. What would indicate that you have been successful in this job?  How would you measure that success?

5. Why do you want to work here instead of somewhere else?

6. Have you ever worked on a team with low morale? What did you do about it?

7. Describe a difficult relationship you had with a customer, client, or boss.  How did you deal with it?
