I know this has been discussed in various ways in this sub-forum thus far, but I have questions. I have only been in two job interviews my entire life (I'm 19), and I did not get the job for either. Ironically, the job I did get I did not have an interview for and was hired before I had even been offered the job (i.e. my mom said "you got hired for a job today". I worked for her employers, it was a good job, great experience in many ways).
What I am curious about is what the interviewers are trying to accomplish through the interview, and what the best way to answer is. Of course, this will vary greatly depending on the interviewer and the job being interviewed for, but bear with me.
So far what I have gathered is that obviously they want to see you are qualified for the job technically speaking, and that you would fit in to the social atmosphere of the work place. They through curveball questions to try to throw you off and especially get you to answer beyond simple, conventional, standard answers.
What advice do you have for a young man with many interviews ahead of him?
