However, once you have begun a series of interviews with various potential employers be sure to start recording their questions after each session. The patterns that you discern in these questions are your best guide for preparing for subsequent interviews.
For example, in my own line of work there are still interviewers who ask about one's principal weaknesses (and you should certainly have answers for oldies like that) but almost all ask questions that relate to issues that include the following:
- How do you handle stress?
- How do you handle conflict with others? (I have yet to encounter anyone asking about how to handle conflict amongst others.)
- What kinds of responsible judgments have you made about cases with which you have been involved?
- How do you handle cases involving domestic violence or abuse?
Assuming that the credentials you indicate on your résumé were what got you the interview how can you demonstrate that you are able to handle yourself well in an actual job? My answer is to record interview questions and prepare honest, direct answers from your own experience.
