This webinar covers commonly-asked questions, including “strengths and weaknesses,” “Why should we hire you?” and “What do you want to be doing in five years?” along with other styles of interviewing (behavioral, eg, “Give me an example of when you failed”) and more. The goal is for you to anticipate questions, understand why specific questions are asked, interpret their true meaning and develop your own individual answers. By the end of the webinar, you will understand how to differentiate yourself from other candidates.
