Behind every interview question there is a concern or

another question. Your job is to process the question

thinking about what the interviewer’s concern might be.  In

other words, why is the interviewer asking you this

question?

Q#1 - How long have you been looking for a job? (Concern –

is there something wrong with you that other employers have

picked up?)

A#1 - “After I was laid off from my last job, I took the

opportunity to take some time out to examine my career

goals and where I was going with my life. I have just begun

my search in the last few weeks. I have a definite goal in

mind and have been selective about the positions I

consider. Your company and this position are of great

interest to me.”

Q#2  - How did you prepare for this interview? (Concern –

are you interested enough to do some research, or are you

going to “wing it”?)

A#2 - “When I found this position posted on the internet

(monster.com) I was   immediately interested. I checked out

the company website and mission statement, looked at the

bios of company founders and executives, and was impressed.

Once I had the interview appointment, I talked with friends

and acquaintances in the industry. And, I’m sure I’ll find

out a lot more in today’s meetings.”

Q#3 - What is your salary expectation for this job?

(Concern – Can we afford you? Can we get you for less than

budgeted?)

A#3 -  “I’ll need more information about the job and the

responsibilities involved before we can begin to discuss

salary. Can you give me an idea of the range budgeted for

this position?”

Q#4 -  How do you keep current and informed about your job

and the industries that you have worked in? (Concern – Once

you get the job do you continue to learn and grow – stay

challenged and motivated?)

A#4 -  “I pride myself on my ability to stay on top of what

is happening in my industry. I do a lot of reading – the

business section of the newspapers and magazines. I belong

to a couple of professional organizations and network with

colleagues at the meetings. I take classes and seminars

whenever they are of interest, or offer new information or

technology.”

Q#5 -  Tell me about a time when you had to plan and

coordinate a project from start to finish. (Concern –

behavioral questions – seeking an example of specific past

behavior)

A#5 -  ” I headed up a project which involved customer

service personnel and technicians. I organized a meeting to

get everyone together to brainstorm and get his or her

input. From this meeting I drew up a plan, taking the best

of the ideas. I organized teams, balancing the mixture of

technical and non-technical people. We had a deadline to

meet, so I did periodic checks with the teams. After three

weeks, we were exceeding expectations, and were able to

begin implementation of the plan. It was a great team

effort, and a big success. I was commended by management

for my leadership, but I was most proud of the team spirit

and cooperation which it took to pull it off.”

Q#6 -  What kinds of people do you have difficulties

working with? (Concern – ability to be flexible and work in

a diverse environment?)

A#6 -  “In my last three jobs I have worked with men and

women from very diverse backgrounds and cultures. The only

time I had difficulty was with people who were dishonest

about work issues. I worked with one woman who was taking

credit for work that her team accomplished.  I had an

opportunity to talk with her one day and explained how she

was affecting the morale. She became very upset that others

saw her that way, and said she was unaware of her behavior

or the reactions of others. Her behavior changed after our

talk. What I learned from that experience is that sometimes

what we perceive about others is not always the case if we

check it out.”

Q#7 -  We expect managers to work more than 8 hours a day.

Do you have a problem with that? (Concern – are you a

work-aholic or a person who requires balance?)

A#7 -  “I have no problem working long hours. I have worked

12 or 14 hour days. What I have found works for me is to

work smarter, not necessarily longer. My goal is to get the

job done, whatever that takes, in the most efficient

manner.”

Q#8 -  When have you been most satisfied in your career?

(Concern – what motivates you? Or demotivates you?)

A#8 -  “The job before the one I am currently at, was my

most rewarding experience for me. I worked in a wonderful

team environment. There was a lot of camaraderie. I worked

with a team of four people and we did some really original

thinking. It is that kind of environment I want to be

involved in again.”

Q#9 -  Why do you want this job? (Concern – are you using

the shot-gun approach to job search or do you really know

what you want?)

A#9 – “I’ve been very careful about the companies where I

have applied. When I saw the ad for this position, I knew I

found what I was looking for. What I can bring to this job

is my seven years of experience, and knowledge of the

industry, plus my ability to communicate and build customer

relationships. That, along with my flexibility and

organizational skills, makes me a perfect match for this

position. I see some challenges ahead of me here, and

that’s what I thrive on. I have what you need, and you have

what I want.”

Q#10 -  We are ready to make an offer. Are you ready to

accept today? (Concern – we don’t want you to go away and

think about it and change your mind – we want you.)

A#10 -  “Based on my research and the information I have

gathered during the interview process, I feel I am in a

position to consider an offer. I do, however, have a

personal policy that I give myself at least 24 hours to

make major life decisions. I could let you know by

tomorrow.”

There is no way you can accurately predict the questions

that will be asked in an interview, but you can be ready

and prepared by thinking about the factors that might

concern an interviewer or employer before the interview.
