Here are some common questions and how they should be answered in an interview. Note that these would apply both in a retail job or professional, as they are used to learn about you as a person, and not just your skill set:
- What do you know about our company?
- So, tell me about yourself?
- Why are you looking/why did you leave your last job?
These are just a few questions that can be asked by the interviewer, but should start you off on the right foot. Past this, you’ll need to prepare yourself for questions about your experiences, skills and aptitude towards the position you are seeking. The best advice I can provide is that you walk in with a positive attitude, preferably with a portfolio to back you up! And remember that the CBA’s Annual Business Conference is on March 7th, and will be a great opportunity for you to meet some professionals in the business community. The event will include a 3 course dinner, networking event, and Dr. Paul McElhone, the new Dean of Management, will be our keynote speaker.
