Tips on answering unexpected interview questions
NEW YORK, NY -- Job interviews can be nerve-wracking for first time applicants. Needless to say, this is the most crucial skill that an applicant should act on. A job interview is also one of the things that will determine whether an applicant will get the job or not. As stressful as interviews can be, there are still ways to pass them so that you can get your dream job
Before you enter an interview, you need to dress properly. As much as possible, inspect yourself in front of a large mirror for anything wrong with your wardrobe that might be the subject of scrutiny to the employers. You also need to make sure that you turn off your mobile phone so as not to get distracted by it if it rings. Most importantly, before you enter the interview room, make sure that you stay focused and alert.
During an interview, employers often times ask unanticipated questions to test your ability to think on your feet. Even if the employer's question is not necessarily related to work, you have to answer the question based on the underlying concerns that surround the question. It's important to keep your cool as there are some employers who will really throw "below the belt" questions at you. After all, during the interview, it's important to sell yourself without appearing foolish in front of the interviewers. Be prepared and remain calm.
