Movers & Shakers How to Win at Interviewing The interview process can be grueling, and so can the questions . . . you want to make sure you are prepared for anything that a hiring manager asks you! Here are three tough interview questions and tips on how to hit a home run: "How would you build a spice rack for a blind man?" Peculiar right? These types of questions are never focused on the subject, more about how you react under pressure and how your thought process works. Creativity is key here. Have fun with the answer and instead of getting lost in the question, provide a unique spin on the topic. Give yourself a few breaths and then respond—try to remember the mantra "grace under pressure." "What is your greatest weakness?" Your greatest weakness could actually be a strength, so focus on experiences where you recovered from one. Walk through the situation and illustrate how you were able to overcome the obstacle. It becomes more about your determination and less about your weaknesses. "How will you learn the new responsibilities in this role?" Use prior job experience that's relatable to answer the question. You can even use an example such as learning a new language or prior experience during your school- ing or professional training. Don't ramble! Be concise, to the point, and stay on track—it shows your ability to focus. CAREER CORNER
