Tricky Interview Questions

By June 12, 2013

Follow me on:

InterviewSometimes, job interview questions are straightforward, and you'll be asked the most common interview questions that employers typically ask. In other cases, it can get more complicated, especially if you are interviewing for a higher level position. The hiring manager will want to know not only what you did, but how you will perform if hired.

One way at getting at that type of information is by asking behavioral interview questions where you will need to respond with specific examples of how you handled situations in the workplace. To help determine how you handle stress and work through problems, you may be asked brain teaser interview questions.

How can you prepare for questions that can be tricky to answer if you don't know what you will be asked? The best way to get ready to respond is to practice answering interview questions - you can do it yourself or have a friend or family member help you.

Also keep in mind that there isn't always a right or wrong answer. The interviewer is seeking candidates who best fit the needs of their organization and company culture. So, relax, take a deep breath and don't be afraid to take a little time to frame a response and you'll do well.
