100 Great Interview Questions

Monster’s site, a community for sales professionals, has published a list of 100 interview questions which candidates should be prepared to answer. While not all of these questions would be appropriate in a legal interview, knowing how you would answer them will help you answer other questions you might be asked and also keep you more comfortable and confident during an interview.

Go here for all 100 questions, but a few of the more interesting/challenging/are you kidding me? questions are reproduced below.

Tell me about yourself. (I know, not really a question, but still.)

Why do you want this job?

What are you most proud of?

How would you describe your work style?

What can you do for us that other candidates can’t?

How do you want to improve yourself in the next year?

Can you describe a time when your work was criticized?

What’s the most important thing you’ve learned in school?

Sell me this pencil.

If I were your supervisor and asked you to do something that you disagreed with, what would you do?

What kind of goals would you have in mind if you got this job?

List five words that describe your character.

If you had to choose one, would you consider yourself a big-picture person or a detail-oriented person, and why?
