Avoid Overthinking Your Interview: There are Only Three QuestionsSave as Favorite
You’ve made it to the interview - congratulations! This is it. In order to do everything possible to excel, you should start your prep with CAC’s interview resources (such as our Job Search Tools Interview Cheat Sheet and our Tips on Rehearsing for an Interview). After all of that prep, would you believe that there are really only three questions you’ll be answering?
The top executive recruiters agree that these are the three true job interview questions:
- Can you do the job?
- Will you love the job?
- Can we tolerate working with you?
Don’t believe me? Check out the Forbes article here. Any other question that gets thrown your way will just be a drill down of one of the above questions. It’s that simple. So be sure that you can answer these basic questions (with more than a yes or no) and figure out how to really sell yourself with the answers. While there is no surefire way to guarantee a job offer, having clear, concise but well thought out rehearsed answers will help get you that much closer.
