Practice Answering Interview Questions

The heart of the interview is what the person says to answer specific questions. While it is not a good idea to be completely rehearsed, it is useful to think ahead about questions and be ready to have something to say to them. For example:

Tell me about yourself.
This is a very common opening question. It is not really a question to get you to talk about any hobbies or interests. It is really about giving you a chance to talk about your personal life in a way that relates to the job.

Try the next couple of questions at right and see how you do.
