Practice Interview Questions

By May 23, 2014

Follow me on:

Practice InterviewingI've heard from several site visitors recently who told me that our interview questions helped them prepare for their job interviews:

"I've been reading your pages recently and am happy to say that I had my second interview yesterday. You were of tremendous help. 75% of your probable questions were asked and answered as you suggested."

"During my interview, I found the questions were in one way or another similar to the ones on About.com, for which I had already thought of examples. I was successful."

"I wanted to say thank you for the job interviewing questions and best answers. I have been on this site for two days taking notes. I will be making flash cards for the interview I have tomorrow. So once again I wanted to say thank you I can walk into that interview and feel prepared."

As you can see, it makes good sense to practice answering interview questions and to review sample answers. The more you practice, the more comfortable you'll be during the interview. Here's more on practice interviews and practice interview tips so you can get ready to ace your interviews and here' s a list of practice interview questions, plus sample answers.

Even though our list of common interview questions is quite long, I'm always interested in adding to our list of interview questions, so if you've been asked some difficult interview questions that you don't see here, please let me know.

On a related note, there are some questions that are usually referred to as illegal interview questions and although it's legally-risky to do so, it is not necessarily against the law for interviewers to ask them. Here's more information on illegal interview questions and what employers shouldn't be asking job applicants.
