The New Stuff

Category



6  

Looking back, what would you do differently in your life ?

Indicate that you are a happy, fulfilled, optimistic person and that, in general, you wouldn’t change a thing.


7  

Aren’t you overqualified for this position?

As with any objection, don’t view this as a sign of imminent defeat. It’s an invitation to teach the interviewer a new way to think about this situation, seeing advantages instead of drawbacks.


8  

Tell me something negative you’ve heard about our company…


Just remember the rule – never be negative – and you’ll handle this one just fine.



9  

Tell me about something you did – or failed to do – that you now feel a little ashamed of ?

As with faults and weaknesses, never confess a regret. But don’t seem as if you’re stonewalling either.

Best strategy: Say you harbor no regrets, then add a principle or habit you practice regularly for healthy human relations.


10  

How could you have improved your career progress ?

You’re generally quite happy with your career progress. Maybe, if you had known something earlier in life (impossible to know at the time, such as the booming growth in a branch in your industry…or the corporate downsizing that would phase out your last job), you might have moved in a certain direction sooner.

But all things considered, you take responsibility for where you are, how you’ve gotten there, where you are going…and you harbor no regrets.
