When you are interviewing with a job, you should always be prepared to answer any and all questions you might have to ask. If you prepare, you will be able to answer questions with ease, and avoid having to start over.
It’s the same with answering questions at interviews. Before you sit down to talk to a hiring manager, you should make sure you understand what the hiring manager is looking for. What kind of references do they have? What is their experience level? What are their interests? What are their hobbies? How do they fit in with the company? If you understand the job requirements, you should be able to answer questions appropriately and not have to start over.
Here’s a good example. When I interviewed for a job at a company called “Taste of London”, I had a bit of an issue with the questions. I thought about asking why I would be required to be so obsessed with the company’s name, but I decided against it. I was able to answer the interview question while still demonstrating my knowledge of the company and how I could help the company succeed.
If you want to do this interview yourself, you can do just about anything you want to. Make sure you are comfortable with the job description and not some “no sir” or “yes sir” kind of thing where you’re either doing something you aren’t supposed to do, or you are being a dick. Then the job will be done.
If you are not comfortable with the job, but you still want to do this interview, then I wouldnt be surprised if you decided to go with the interviewers wishes. The interviewers would be there to help you out, but you arent a fool and you know what they want to do.
So it’s a little like being a cop or a detective or a scientist or something. So people do it anyway. People can go to interview sites and ask questions, but if you dont want to do it, then it isnt good. It isnt like having your own voice in all the questions that you ask, you dont want to do it because the interview isnt good.
So the point of doing an interview is to get a response to what you’ve asked. Most interviewers have very specific interests and hobbies that they are passionate about. Even though you may not have a desire to do the same thing as them, you still have to try to get the best answer you can possibly get. If you get an answer that you don’t like, then you can always say no, and they might be glad that you did.
There are very specific and narrow parameters that you have to adhere to when you ask an interview question. You have to be very specific about what you are asking; it must be in the exact format as the person you are interviewing. If you feel uncomfortable asking something, you can always say that you cant think of anything else and that you want to check back in a week.
It comes down to how much you are willing to fight. If you are unwilling to fight, you won’t get a chance to ask the question. If you are willing to fight, you are going to get the chance and you will get the answer you want.
