Overview of topic:
The key to successful interviewing is preparation! In this session we’ll discuss strategies for answering 10 common, but often challenging questions including “Tell me about yourself,” “Describe a conflict you had had with your manager, “What’s a weakness or an area of development for you?” and “Why did you leave your last position?” In addition, we’ll briefly explore why these questions are asked, and responses best to avoid. Finally we’ll discuss at least five questions YOU should be asking the interviewer.
