In preparation for an interview, most of us brainstorm a list of questions that we assume will come up in the interview, and then practice answering them or at least preparing answers to respond to them. Pretty basic. But what about the questions you can’t anticipate? How do you prepare for those?
Until recently, I never thought about what I would do if an employer asked a question that I didn’t know how to answer in an interview. I only tried to brainstorm as many questions as possible before the interview to avoid this situation from arising.
As a job seeker, no matter how prepared you are, eventually you will be posed with a question that temporarily stumps you. You need to be prepared to be unprepared.
Here are some tips to consider when prepping for this moment:
When it comes to interviewing, just as with creating a video resume, practice makes perfect. If you’re going to practice interviewing with family and friends, ask them afterwards how you did in answering questions you weren’t prepared for.
