When you are applying for an entry level position a typical job interview question is "What college subjects did you like best? Why?"

Here are sample interview answers which you can edit to fit your personal experiences and background:

  • My favorite classes in college are those in the social sciences. I have a strong passion for theory, including struggling over difficult texts and discussing common human social issues. I also really enjoyed my classics courses. Because of them, I am able to understand a lot of classical references and have a better handling on the English language thanks to Latin.
  • I loved my music and art classes in school. I knew nothing about music or art when entering college, but when I took my first class, I feel in love. They act as a getaway from the strenuous world of academia. It also allows me to express myself creatively, which I never knew I could do.
  • My English courses were most beneficial for me. As a side hobby, I love to write. Whether I am writing a creative narrative, biographical piece or poetry, I love to write. The skills I have developed in my English classes have been extremely beneficial in my other coursework and I have developed tremendously as a writer.
