How to Answer Tough Interview Questions


For those people who follow my YouTube channel, you will be aware that I teach a unique method for answering tough and common interview questions. Below, I have provided you with my 3-step approach for answering any type of interview question:

STEP 1 – Divide your interview preparation into 3 interview question types

There are 3 different types of interview question: Motivational, Behavioral and Research.

Motivational interview questions include: “Tell me about yourself?”, “Why do you want to work for our company?”, and “Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?” These are the easiest of questions to prepare for, simply because you know they are coming!

The second type (behavioral) are the toughest and require an in-depth response that uses the STAR interview technique (see STEP 2 below).

Finally, the Research-based type of interview question assesses your knowledge of their company (see STEP 3 below).

STEP 2 – Use the STAR technique

The STAR technique is a simple, yet brilliant way to answer the tough behavioural/situational type of interview questions. These questions are usually asked by the panel in the following manner:

“Describe a time when you…”

“Explain a situation you were in when you…”

“Tell me about a time when you…” 

The important thing to remember here is, you have to answer the questions with a specific situation you were in, and the most effective way to structure your answers is by formatting them using SITUATION, TASK, ACTION and RESULT.

STEP 3 – Research-based interview question responses

I can pretty much guarantee that during your interview, you will be asked questions such as:

“Tell me what you know about our company?”

“Having read the job description, which parts of the role will you find the toughest?”

On that basis, it is really important you spend time studying their organization and also taking the time to read through the job description and person specification.

To make sure you are fully prepared for your interview, Richard McMunn has compiled his top 21 GREAT ANSWERS TO TOUGH INTERVIEW QUESTIONS guide, which you can download and start studying within 2 minutes time from now!

RICHARD MCMUNN’S 5 TOP INTERVIEW TIPS!

Over the years, Richard McMunn has helped literally thousands of people from around the world to successfully pass their job interviews. Below, he has provided you with his top 5 tips for interview success to make sure you ACE YOUR INTERVIEW! 

INTERVIEW TIP #1 – Use You Interview Preparation Time Wisely

I see it time and time again, people worry or panic about their upcoming interview. The truth is, there really is no need to panic. During your interview preparation, prepare answers to the common types of interview questions and also make sure you practice a mock interview (see tip 5 below).

INTERVIEW TIP #2 – Overcoming Interview Nerves.

Having nerves prior to, and during your interview, is normal. The interview panel will expect a certain amount of nerves and they will take these into account when interviewing you. However, there are a couple of things to remember: (i). The interview is your opportunity to shine and there is absolutely no point in worrying. (ii). You have nothing to lose by being confident and giving it your all. The worst that can happen is, you don’t get the job, and you then simply apply for another one and start over. Be yourself, have confidence in your abilities and go for it!

INTERVIEW TIP #3 – Dress to Impress and Work on Interview Technique

Answering the interview questions forms only a small part of the assessable criteria. The interview panel have to like you, and your interpersonal skills will count for a lot! So, even if you can’t answer an interview questions, your personality might make up for it. On that basis, make an effort and dress smart for your interview.

INTERVIEW TIP #4 – Good Manners go a LONG WAY!

Good manners are not that commonplace in society these days. However, they can go a long way to impressing the interview panel. Focus on a firm handshake, don’t sit down in the interview chair until invited to do so, and most importantly, smile during your interview.

INTERVIEW TIP #5 – Carry Out a MOCK INTERVIEW

Prior to your interview, carry out a mock interview and practice all of the interview questions on this page – I promise if you do, you will be far better prepared than the vast majority of candidates. Good luck!
