30 Common Interview Questions - Part 1: General Questions

For many of us, interviews are on par with public speaking as the activity that causes the most uncertainty and trepidation. One way to combat that is to figure out your answers to some of the more common interview questions ahead of time, and practice answering them succinctly and confidently. Practice makes perfect and interviewing is no different. Don't wait until you have an interview on your calendar; start practicing now!!! To increase your confidence even more, practice using mock interviews. Mock interviews are indispensable here at Whole Living Coaching.
