I know a lot of people focus a lot on telling the employer what they want to hear and often end up sounding like everyone else. It got me to thinking, is there really a best answer in a job interview? I am beginning to think it is best to just answer according to your own personality, skills set, and experience.
The best answer is always the right answer for yourself. When you think about it like this, if you go in answering questions based on your fabricated self, you are selling the idea of being someone else to someone who is considering hiring you. If you change, that trust will be tarnished and they likely will have regrets if they end up hiring you.
I agree about it always being the right answer for yourself. You don’t want to approach an interview like a date and fabricate things. You will just end up disappointing your employer.
Stick which what works best for you. If you get asked a question you are not sure about, be honest and tell them. It is better to get turned down for a job by being honest vs being hired thanks to lies.
I am not sure if there is or isn’t. Maybe this depends on the person doing the interviewing? I would like to think they expect a general response.
If you stick too closely to what you think they want to hear, you miss out on the chance to stand out from everyone else. Make sure you let it be known you are valuable.
Month ago I had some job interviews.One of them was with a manager of a big department in a well-known company.The interview was successful! I was getting ready to study Pwc interview questions . It was the best day of my life when they told me that they are ready to hire me!
