3 Interview Questions Nobody Wants to Answer

Job interviews are stressful. While you can try to make them easier by preparing what you want to say, doing research and doing practice interviews, there are still some questions that nobody wants to hear.

Resume.io, a resume writing service, asked 2,000 young people which interview questions they thought were the hardest to answer. Here are their three top choices.

1. Tell me about yourself?

Remember to stay professional during your interview. This question is is meant to ask you about your career and detailed work history. It is not about your childhood, home or hobbies. Remember the job you are being interviewed for, so your response should be focused on the relevant job experience.

Sample Answer

“I have been working for the past 4 years for company A. I started out as a part-time junior sales assistant and have been promoted to senior sales associate and then most recent to sales manager. Meanwhile I graduated from College B with a major in Economic Studies”

2. Sell me this pen!

Made famous by the 2013 movie The Wolf of Wall Street. The best solution is not to try to sell the pen right away. Instead, ask questions and find out what kind of person you’re talking to, and why a pen might be important to them. This is because you can only sell something if you know why someone might want it!

3. Where do you see yourself in five years?

This is one of the most common interview questions, and 39% of people in the survey said they had heard it. Companies want to know that you will still be working for them and learning new skills in five years. So a great way to answer this question is to say that you’d see yourself as a leader and expert in the type of work the company does.
