Self-Assessment
To many recent college graduates, the most difficult part of finding a job does not involve formatting resumes, networking, and answering interview questions with panache.

Interviewing Like a Pro in Five Easy Steps

So, why don't you tell me about yourself?
The most frequently asked interview question. It's a question that most interviewees expect and the one they have the most difficulty answering.

Standard Questions
Standard interview questions might not seem difficult, but your answer to each should be polished and sharp. Craft responses and practice them before your interview so that they roll off your tongue when you face the interviewer.

Difficult Questions
You think the interview is going well. Then the interviewer lifts her head from her notes and, pen in hand, asks: what are your weaknesses?

The Behavioral Style Interview
In an effort to find the perfect employee, recruiters have embraced behavioral style interviews as their interview of choice.

Now, Do You Have Any Questions?
The way you approach the Q&A session will have a direct impact on the interviewer's perception of you. Based on the questions you ask, a judgment will be made in regard to how interested you seem to be in working for the company.
