With the current, depressed state of the economy (which means that jobs, of course, a bit more difficult to land), one of the most valuable bits of knowledge anyone can have is a thorough understanding of exactly what they can do in a job interview to answer questions in what will be deemed an effective manner – and while each interviewer will have a unique perspective on exactly what the “right” answers are during a job interview, there are a few things anyone can keep in mind – for any sort of interview – that will help them a great deal.

The first step to unraveling the mystery of “what an interviewer wants to hear” is knowing the sorts of questions you are likely to be asked; although you may not go into the interview knowing exactly what the interviewer will want to hear, you can at least go in knowing that they do not want to hear a succession of “ummmm” and “welllll” and “you know, uh, hmmm” – and when you know the questions you are likely to hear, you will be much better equipped to avoid all these “filler words.”

Having confidence and “being yourself” is often more important than “answering questions correctly” in a job interview, as an interviewer will want to feel comfortable in the knowledge that the person they are interviewing (and thinking about hiring!) is able to feel comfortable in a high-pressure situation, operating confidently, so go into the interview with your head held high and your wits about you.

And finally, realize that study and practice will put you in a good position when it comes time for the real thing. It might seem silly to sit around and “practice” your job interview, but by equipping yourself with a list of the questions you are likely to hear, you will be able to practice answering these questions naturally and confidently, and this practice and preparation will pay off big-time in the long run!
