Accunting Job I have an interview tomorrow for a really great paying accounting job. I feel as if I am not really qualified but am very excited about it. Its been a while since I went on a interview. What kind of questions should I expect? I am dealing with a recruiter and they said that they have already interviewed several applicants. that makes me nervous are they really picky or are losers applying or lying just to get an interview?

    Go there positive but don't get your hopes up. There is a lot behind the "crooter' game. Use it as a 'interview lesson'

    Why are you hessitant of your qualifications? Are you qualified for the job, or not? If you're not qualified, you have no business of mucking up the process by wasting all involved parties time in the pursuit of a good paying accounting job that you had no business in applying to, to begin with. If you are qualified, meaning you have worked as an accountant and have all the qualifications as outlined by the required experience for that specific position, the questions that will be asked are position specific to the role of an accountant, making it a straightforward first contact interview.

    Be ready! Hi LittleJunior! If you have an interview, your qualifications are sufficient to meet the client's needs. Today, think about some snappy answers to stupid questions like: "What is your greatest strength/weakness?" "Can you give an example of a time where you needed to deal with conflicting requests? How did you handle it?" Wow the 'crooter with your answers so that they feel confident in sending you to their client. Good luck!

    May I add... Also when you are thinking about responses to questions, take a moment to actually digest the question then respond. When you discuss your weakness indicate that because you are aware of whatever it is, you put fail safe procedures in place to balance your abilities. Additionally when you are asked about work situations in the past, come up with SPECIFIC examples in which you successfully handled the situation and had a postive outcome. Don't be generic. They are looking for your thought process to ensure that your success is repeatable.

    I'm getting nervous already. What is a good weakness to talk about? I don't want to come of problem guy, we all have our difficulties..but what would be a good weakness to state that doesn't seem like i'm hiding or lying?

    Honestly I am terrible at training and giving presentations. While at prior job, I had to present monthly audits to the board and CEO. I would get nervous and fumble my words and my hands would shake. I would get through it, but I didn't look professional. I also have a hard time delegating tasks. Often times i find it easier to stay a little bit longer and finish the project myself rather then try to explain to another how I'd like it done. While at said job, i would often work Saturdays to keep caught up because i didn't delegate tasks to lighten my work load. now...having said that, i'm applying for a senior account. Both of these probably would be major issues to the controller as that would be what I am doing.

    I'm glad we are having this chat Okay. Let's tackle the training and presentation thing. What have you done to improve in this area? Have you joined a local Toastmaster's? If not, I would today. One of the best investments you'll ever make if you will have to speak professionally or if public speaking makes you nervous. Then your response could be something like, "In a prior position I had to present monthly audits to the board and CEO. I found I was extremely nervous and therefore did not feel I came across as professional as I hoped. Because of this I joined Toastmasters to help me become a better and more polished public speaker." What do you think? Of course, please use your own words.

    Now you're talking! Write this stuff down and rehearse it over and over! Put together the prior position and the homeowners association and you have your first weakness. If pressed for more or in a follow up use the delegation weakness with your response that two heads are better than one and three are better than two etc. The thing they are looking for is: A. Are you an arogant ass who thinks his shit doesn't stink or B. This is a problem solver who understands his limitations and isn't afraid to engage others to assist him? Practice, practice, practice and you won't be nervouse at all. You'll do just fine! Good luck.

    All of them. I think one of the best tools available to prepare for an interview is on Career Builder through You can look up specific articles for questions that seem to trip you up. Use this prep time to think about your prior positions, your accomplishments and what you may have been able to do differently. Be specific and write your responses down to the questions and then rehearse them. It is important to remember, always use your own words and keep it short and simple. If you can say it in two or three sentences then do that. Let your personality come through, don't be afraid to use appropriate humor and lots of good eye contact. The mirror is a great tool to practice and if you have a friend who is on the same level as you, take them out for a drink and ask them if you can practice.

    Go in there with the goal of learning about the company. Go in there and keep in mind that you want to find out about the company. Forget that it is even an interview.
