How to Answer Interview Questions About Difficult Work Experiences

Posted 1851 days ago by Job Interview Coach

Employers love behavioral interview or situational interview questions about how you dealt with difficult experiences in your past. Why? For one, past behavior predicts future behavior. When you tell your story, you will give them a strong glimpse into how you would handle a similar situation when you work for them. Two, it gives them a big peek into your thought process. The ability to think critically about anything is an important skill, and your story will demonstrate that you can (or can’t) do this.

You will hear the structure you should follow in your own story, and I will tell you what the most critical part of your story is.
