Questions (2)If you want to stand out from other candidates, and have an excellent interview that results in a job offer, you should ask questions.  I've put together a starting list of great questions to ask your interviewer.  Weave some of these questions into the conversation (don't ask them all at once) and you will have a fantastic job interview.

 - What would an ideal candidate for this job look like?  

 - Tell me about your most successful employee.

 - What tasks will define success for this job?

Weird Interview Questions CEOs Like to Ask

Erin-K-Weird-Interview-QuestionsWe 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.

Job Search Videos Help Engineer Get Job in Australia

Sydney-Opera-HouseI 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!

Hi Peggy,

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.

Kind regards,

Ougesh
