15 Toughest Interview Questions (and Answers!)


15. How would your friends describe you?

Bad answer:
"I’m a really good listener.”

While being a good listener is a great personality trait, your employer probably doesn’t care all that much. It’s unlikely that they’re hiring you to be a shoulder to cry on. You’ll want to keep your answer relevant to the job you’re interviewing for – and as specific as possible. If you can, insert an example.

Good answer:
“My friends would probably say that I’m extremely dependable – I’ve always been the one person on my team that can be counted on to start and complete a project on time. While some other workers might find it difficult to get a task done, I always find the time to finish what I start and make sure the projects I lead are top notch quality.”
