Videos give you something written answers don't: tone, inflection, and other subtleties that make a big difference in the quality of your answer. Not everyone learns the same, so videos may be just what you need to develop perfect interview answers.
99% of the job seekers (more than 270,000) who have experienced these say that they improve their interview answers immediately.
We are accustomed to any number of conventional interview questions, and everyone has their favorites. But many shrewd CEOs and executives are digging a little deeper, looking beyond what they see in a job candidates’ executive profiles, resumes and cover letters. They are asking some very unusual interview questions designed to reveal more of your personality and ensure you are the perfect fit for their company.
“What would you do in the event of a zombie apocalypse?”
— Ashley Morris, Capriotti Sandwich Shop CEO
Of course, there is no right or wrong answer here. It’s simply a fun question Morris likes to ask to see how a candidate will respond under pressure. This gives him a feel for how effectively they react without prior thought or planning, as well as insight into their moral compass and whether they will fit into the company’s culture.
I wanted to share with you this email I received from an Engineer in Australia. It shows how much interview prep matters, especially when you're looking for a job in a different field, in another country!
I am a new migrant in Australia and my field of expertise is Electrical and Electronics Engineering. Since I landed here, I was seriously looking for a role in my field and came across a Service Engineer role with a leading medical company in Sydney. As part of my research for my interview, I watched almost all your videos posted in YouTube and guess what? Some of the questions asked to me were exactly as the ones in the videos. Because I managed to use your advice and examples you provided, I have been successful in securing the job.
Thank you so much for your time and effort you put into making those videos and providing brilliant examples. You have done all job seekers a great favor and I wish you all the very best for your future work. I have already started advertising your website and the video links on YouTube to help others.
Thank you again from the bottom of heart. Securing a job for me in Sydney was really a challenge but you made it possible for me.
Here are two sites with excellent videos to help you succeed in your job search and interviews:
Employers are very interested in knowing why you want to work for their company, in this job--so you'll almost always be asked some version of this job interview question.
In the video below, you'll see what you absolutely should never say in response to that question--along with tips for how you should answer it. You'll make a great impression and stand out as the one to hire. Click the video to play.
Everyone should practice answering interview questions before the interview. It doesn't have to be hard--you can practice great interview answers with an app! This is especially important if you are getting interviews but not job offers, or if you haven't interviewed in a while, like Shawne:
Last month I downloaded your app on my iPad because I was going on my first interview [in over a year]...I was feeling nervous about what to say in my interview. I know things change in the professional world when you're not in it and I didn't know what to expect. So thanks to your practice questions I nailed my interview!! And I got a job at the Walt Disney World Resort!! Keep up the great work Peggy, you are amazing at what you do and you gave me the knowledge and confidence to receive an offer from a place I've always wanted to work!
