Love them or hate them, job interviews are a crucial part of the vast majority of job selection processes. In theory they are all about an employer assessing whether you are fit to do the job you have applied for. However, in reality they can often be a minefield of odd questions where it can be unclear what the best answer should be!
To help you navigate the ranges of questions employers can throw at you we have created a new video series covering the most common types of interview question:
- tell me about yourself
In these videos you'll find lots of information on why these questions are asked, what employers are looking for and how to give a good answer. You'll also see University of Bath students having a go at answering these questions.
