In interviews, employers often ask leading questions designed to determine whether or not you have the right “chemistry” to fit within their company’s mission and culture. Sharing your C.A.R. (Challenge, Action and Result) stories helps you demonstrate the specific qualities and characteristics employers seek.

In addition to sharing personable C.A.R. stories, always be prepared to answer technical questions related to your areas of expertise. Finally, to be ready for a variety of question styles, practice your answers to the following typical interview questions: Positive, Negative and Neutral.

It doesn’t take much to turn negative and neutral questions into positive opportunities to shine. Recover from challenging questions by offering specific, upbeat examples describing your career experiences and skills.
