SCC, Riverview Room

Tell me about yourself. What’s your greatest weakness? What do you know about our company and why do you want to work for us? Why should we hire you? Tell me about a time you experienced conflict in a team. If you’ve ever wondered how to best answer these types of questions this session can help.

The presentation will include insight into what interviewers are looking for and what you can do to meet and/or exceed their expectations. Strategies for answering difficult and behavourial-based questions will be covered, as will tips on what you can do before, during, and after an interview to give yourself an edge over the competition.
