“How did you hear about this position?” sounds pretty sterile, but this question is your chance to do some name dropping and explain how excited you were to have the news shared with you. “What do you consider your greatest weakness?” is only a question used to gauge whether you are self-aware and are working to improve yourself. “Where do you see yourself in five years?” is an opportunity to show that you are ambitious but realistic, and also to show that this position aligns with your goals (and thus will make you a more passionate employee). “What’s a time you exercised leadership?” is when you pitch the interviewer a carefully crafted story either of your project management skills or your ability to inspire a team. A good story will be believable and memorable, and it can help you get a job.
