One of the worst things that can happen to you in a job interview is to get a tough interview question that makes you freeze, like a deer in the headlights. You are surprised, you don't know which way to go, and so you just sit there waiting for disaster. Most of the interview questions that make you freeze are questions like, "What's your greatest achievement?" or "What's your greatest failure?" or "What have you done that makes you a great fit for this job?" Even if you can answer those, you can easily get stuck when they follow up your answer with "How did you do that?" or "What happened?" Here's a great exercise that will really prepare you to answer the toughest interview questions: Read more...
I received this great comment from a hiring manager on interviewing, and thought her insights would help you in your next interview, when you answer interview questions.
My observations as a hiring manager are in line with what you are saying in this video. I've interviewed candidates for a position in software development team and asked them a standard question: "Where do you see yourself in three years?" Many responded enthusiastically, "I want to be a manager", not realizing that this be viewed as a threat to the continuous employment of a manager :) A safer answer is "I want to be a senior programmer." The biggest assumption people make is that if they tell you what they did, you will understand that they will and can do the job. I think this approach is far from perfect, and they will be better understood if they spell this out explicitly. For example, "I can support Oracle database and resolve performance issues because I have such and such experience to rely upon." What I heard often was "I am passionate about Oracle and done a lot of Oracle programming" - how [your passion helps] me was not spelled out for me. Just my 2c Cheers, OlgaThe video Olga refers to is this one: The 4 Unasked Job Interview Questions You MUST Answer The big ideas here are to remember who you're speaking with and adjust your answers accordingly, and give evidence-based answers (especially quantified ones that include numbers, dollars, and percentages) instead of only talking about your passion. Passion and enthusiasm are good, but evidence is better. If you'd like great answers to specific interview questions, check out my blog series, How to Answer Interview Questions.

Employers want to know about more than just your skills and experience--they want to know how you'll get along day-to-day. How will you react in stressful situations? What will you do when a customer gets cranky, or there's some issue with the product? One way for hiring managers to get to that information is to use behavioral interview questions that try to uncover how you have reacted in similar situations, or that set up a theoretical problem to see how you would go about solving it. Both types of behavioral (or situational) interview questions show how you think, which can be much more informative for a hiring manager than asking about your greatest weakness. The easiest and most effective way to answer Behavioral Interview Questions is to use the STAR format. Read more...

Can a 30-60-90-Day Sales Plan make YOUR interview amazing and get you a job offer in 24 hours? You bet. See what it did for Jeanne:
Hello Peggy! I just wanted to let you know my results from using your 30 60 90 day sales plan. [Prior to purchasing your plan, my face-to-face] interview went great! As we wrapped up [the hiring manager] said, "We are going to have another interview and I want you to be able to tell me in our next meeting how you plan on tackling this job." I put together my 30 60 90 day sales plan. At my next interview, when the hiring manager asked if I had given any thought as to how I would tackle the job and when I responded with, "Well, yes I have. I have prepared a 90 day plan that I would love to share with you." The look on his face was priceless!! He was not expecting this, Peggy. The interview went amazing. I was offered the job within 24 hours. -- JeanneLook at what Jeanne is teaching us here: Most people would have thought about how they planned to tackle the job, and maybe have formulated an answer before they went to the interview. Jeanne took it up a notch with her 90-day plan and became the star candidate. The 30 60 90-Day Plan is the something 'extra' that can absolutely make you stand out and make the company very eager to hire you. Do not go to another interview without a 30 60 90 Day Plan. It's too risky. Pull out all the stops and knock their socks off. That's when you walk away with the job offer. Find out more and get your 30 60 90 Day Sales Plan right now.

They are projections from you about how you would handle everyday or stressful situations in this new job, based on how you've handled similar situations before. To answer behavioral interview questions well, you need to know which questions are likely to be asked, and plan for a story you can tell.
