Should you prepare for frequent interview questions?

Member

There are tons of lists online and suggestions on how to answer common or frequent interview questions. Are these questions someone should prepare for or is it better to just do it naturally as possible and speak on what comes to mind first?

I don't like to. This is because I end up getting in my own head and if you come off as scripted or dishonest in an interview, it will likely be more than enough reason for them to consider someone else for the job position.

I believe there is such a thing as over-preparing. This will often make you come off as unauthentic which can make you look like you are untrustworthy so I don’t prepare in this way.

I think it is a good idea to have a general idea of what your answers will be, yes. Don’t write yourself a script, just be prepared for them mentally. It will help you land the job.

Don’t be like everyone else and go in with a list of possible answers and questions. Look at the field and apply common sense. If you want to get the job, just be yourself and show you have value.

Thanks for all your responses. Maybe I am overthinking this too much. I tend to want to be prepared for evetything in life and I have to accept that somethings I just can't be prepared for. This advice helped a lot.
