The New Stuff



Could you have done better in your last job ?

Again never be negative.


And what would you do if he still did not change his ways?


Would you lie for the company ?

Try to avoid choosing between two values, giving a positive statement which covers all bases instead.


Do you have the stomach to fire people? Have you had experience firing many people ?

Describe the rational and sensible management process you follow in both hiring and firing.


You’ve been with your firm a long time. Won’t it be hard switching to a new company ?

To overcome this objection, you must point to the many ways you have grown and adapted to changing conditions at your present firm. It has not been a static situation. Highlight the different responsibilities you’ve held, the wide array of new situations you’ve faced and conquered.

As a result, you’ve learned to adapt quickly to whatever is thrown at you, and you thrive on the stimulation of new challenges.

To further assure the interviewer, describe the similarities between the new position and your prior one. Explain that you should be quite comfortable working there, since their needs and your skills make a perfect match.
