The Art of Answering Interview Questions

Kate Lorenz of CareerBuilder.com states that the majority of failed interviews are due to nervousness. Since most interviews follow the same format, Lorenz believes that nervousness can be attributed to lack of preparation. Here are some tips for your next interview:

1) Prepare for your interview. Practice at least three hours for each interview.

2) Know the common interview questions and draft responses to them. For commonly asked questions click “Interview Questions.” Practice speaking your responses out load.

3) Read up on the company or graduate school with which you will be interviewing with. Create questions of your own. For possible questions click Questions to Ask” and “Questions to Ask Graduate Students.”

4) Have good directions to the interview site.
