Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you knew exactly what types of questions would come up in your next job interview? The element of surprise would be gone and you’d be able to calm those nerves. Unfortunately, we’re not psychic, and we can’t read minds. 

On the bright side, we have the next best thing; 17 of our most commonly asked interview questions. While we don’t recommend memorizing a word for word answer to all these inquiries, we do encourage you to feel comfortable answering them and to take into account the kind of answers your hiring manager is looking for. Consider this list your new study guide to interviewing.
