Responding To Difficult Questions


If you've had gaps in your employment history, freeze when asked "tell me something about yourself" or served time in prison, expect to be questioned closely during a job interview. The key to dealing with these experiences when responding to interview questions is to make the experience as positive as possible. Work double-time to outshine the other candidates with your positive outlook and qualifications for the job.

If you are interested in exploring other ideas and strategies for responding to difficult questions in interviews; or to practice your responses, please schedule a Career Advising appointment with one of our Career Advisors. To schedule an appointment go to Workshops & Services on the navigation bar, find the workshop/service you would like to attend and register
