— reported at HispanicAd.com
Bayer advises job-hunters to be prepared and have the right attitude. Hiring managers will sense your self-confidence and you will be less likely to ramble or grope for words when they ask the tough questions.
Bayer has a list of the 10 toughest interview questions Five O’Clock Club members have been asked. Here’s how he suggests you respond.
- Tell me about yourself?
- Why didn’t you finish college?
- How long have you been unemployed? What is this gap in your resume?
- Tell me about the worst boss you’ve ever had?
- What are your weaknesses?
Be strategic: Some people are comfortable saying: I don’t have any work-related weaknesses.
- What are your strengths?
Be specific: Don’t simply say, “I’m organized, dependable and honest.
- What are you looking for?
Have something in mind. It takes a lot of thinking to be ready for this. Nothing turns off interviewers more than candidates who don’t know what they want.
- How would you handle this?
Think before you speak: The interviewer describes a problem situation and asks you how you would handle it. You can’t think that quickly.
- What is your current salary or what are you looking to earn?
Delay answering. The most important strategy is to postpone the discussion of salary until you get an offer.
- What questions do you have for us?
Do your homework.
