Job interviews are half art, half science. While part of the grueling experience is designed to see how you naturally interact and hold yourself, a large portion of what you need to do can be learned and developed, and the task can be made a lot easier with a bit of know-how.

Resume Beacon, an online resume builder, has created this slickly-designed infographic giving you a few insights into some of the tough questions employers might ask you in an interview and, most importantly, how to answer them.


The guide also tells you of potential pitfalls and traps employers are leading you towards with their questions, as well as what they are actually looking for in your answers. Take, for example, the age-old interview question of “why should we choose you for this role?” Here, they’re looking for confidence – not arrogance – while seeing how you feel your strengths pair up with the job responsibilities. Simple, if you know what to look out for.

Take a look at the infographic below for more invaluable hints and tips. Break a leg!
