I just learned quite a bit about an interview coaching client’s upcoming interview. He should expect:

  1. One-on-one and panel interviews.
  2. Behavioral based interview questions (positive and negative examples).
  3. Case studies and/or hypothetical questions.
  4. Questions about the state of the art in his area of technical expertise.
  5. Questions about his team building, leadership, and collaboration skills.
  6. Questions about what he knows about the company. More here.
  7. Conservative dress.
  8. “Yes” or “no” feedback within one month.
  9. A drug test if he’s offered a job.
