Job Interview Tips
When asked to introduce yourself, be concise and focused. Explain past work experience briefly in chronological order. If you do not have work experience, you could talk about any part time work you had during school. Interviewers always want to know why you left previous jobs. The answers you give can indicate your work attitude and communication skills. Therefore, try to come up with positive reasons such as "I was looking for career advancement. " or "I wanted to push myself to take on a more challenging role." Some candidates will make negative comments about their ex boss, ex co-worker or ex subordinate, but it is not advisable to make negative comments about anyone during an interview.
Why Do You Want This Job
Explain your enthusiasm for the job by saying something like, "After researching the company, it seems tailored to my skill set, knowledge, and practical experience. I want to be a part of this company as it grows. "
Strength and Weakness

Explain how your goals in 3 to 5 years are related to the position and to the company that you are interviewing for.
