Common Interview Questions (and Answers You Should Have) in 2019

January 22nd, 2019

As you prepare for your job interview, you must be ready to answer basic questions, job-specific questions, and difficult ones as well. If you are looking at the new year as the perfect time to get a new and better job, you should consider how you will answer some interview questions.

How to Answer These 3 Interview Questions with Confidence

No matter how many interviews you’ve had in your professional career, certain questions can still feel awkward to answer. These three interview questions are commonly asked, and also difficult to answer. Use this guide to help you during your next interview in 2019.

Address your biggest weakness.

Everyone has weaknesses, so don’t even think about telling your interviewer that you have none! Be honest and focus on the progress that you have already made in correcting your weaknesses and how you plan on continuing overcoming this weakness. Focusing on how you can improve your weakness shows that you don’t shy away from challenges and that you are strong enough to overcome obstacles. Acknowledging your weaknesses also shows your integrity and honesty, two great qualities that every hiring manager wants to see.

How did you solve a difficult problem?

When giving your response to this question, consider it an opportunity to illustrate your abilities to overcome roadblocks, rather than a time to complain. Before the interview, think back on specific examples so you can recall the details. Since specifics are important when telling stories, if you have numbers to share with the interviewer, that would be an added bonus. Sharing the details of how you solved a particular problem will also build credibility.

How did you deal with a difficult co-worker?

No matter what the position, hiring managers are looking for team players. Since nobody is perfect, nearly every job has had to work with a difficult co-worker, so you should be ready to answer this question during your next interview. As previously mentioned, think back throughout your work experience so you can talk specifically about how you were able to look beyond a difficult co-worker and still complete your job, working alongside respectfully. You may find that both the difficult problem at work and the difficult co-worker questions are connected for your responses, and that is OK!
