11 Answers you NEED before ANY job interview
Really liked these tips from an article from Time I came across and wanted to share. http://time.com/money/4226260/interview-questions-answers/
Tell me about yourself
One of the most common and difficult questions asked during an interview is...
Similar questions are: -Why should we hire you? -Why do you want to work here? -What is it about us that makes you want to work here?
Just know that employers are not looking for you to actually tell them about your personal life, like your favorite shows or how awesome your spouse is. They are expecting you to tell them about yourself while giving them a brief overview of who you are, professionally speaking.
You should be ready with a one-minute answer that summarizes where you are in your career, generally with an emphasis on your most recent job while highlighting your strengths.
Answer these 5 questions to help yourself plan what to say and impress employers!
1- What are the three strongest reasons I am a great fit for this job?
2- What are some positive things I can say about the company, and how can I connect what they do with what I can bring to them?
3- Why do I really want this job beyond having a steady paycheck and perks?
4- What are three AWESOME things I did in my previous position that I can also offer in this new role?
5- What is the EXACT job description (make sure to write it down) and how do MY skills match up with it? Be as specific as possible!
Answering these questions will help you feel prepared to go in with some great things to say.

Stay calm and be comfortable with who you are, what experience you have, and have confidence in knowing, and then sharing with prospective employer, what you can bring to the workplace and the team. Remember to not come off as being too prideful and instead humble yourself for having the opportunity to have even been able to interview with an amazing foundation like the UofU. Good luck!
