had a couple group interviews where they did the 'think of two truths and a lie' then share and the rest of the people guess.

then we made friendship bracelets.

It took me 2 months once I started the interviewing process to get a job with the IRS. I finally got the job, but then never started. I didn't want to work there, and I found something better.

My favorite (read: least favorite) question is this series:

Where do you see yourself in two years?
Where do you see yourself in five years?
Where do you see yourself in ten years?


This is the type of crap they should let you study beforehand. That's a tough question to answer, especially when they keep asking it again on a longer time frame! You don't want to say still in the same position, because then you seem unmotivated and dead-ended, but heaven forbid you say in a promoted position, because then you're cocky! And if you admit you might not be around in ten years, then why the hell would they ever want to invest their time in you if you already know you'll be leaving? Can anyone tell me what an appropriate response to these types of questions is?

now i cant really remember what they asked me. first off was "tell me about yourself" which is actually pretty hard to do while trying to keep it as focused and job related as you can! another tough one was "what aspects of the job do you see yourself enjoying and what do you see yourself not enjoying".

what they get you on is asking a question thats a string of smaller questions! they asked me an overall question that was made up of several other ones and by the time i was into answering i forgot what my point was. ALL the questions were like that. kind of what i wasnt prepared for.

A job interview is like any other conersation. Turn it around and make the interview about the interviewer.

Those questions are bogus, talk about the company, talk about the job, hell talk about current events. That's all you need to do.

its good to ask the interviewer questions.

ask them some detailed questions.

what are the company's goals for the next five years?
does the company plan to expand? if so, where?

another good one to ask about is recent stumbling blocks the company has run into and how they fixed that problem.
