"Loaded" Interview Questions – and What's Behind Them?

Uncategorized Apr 22, 2024

 Why are some interview questions harder than others?

Because they feel "loaded".
Loaded with what?

With lots of other little questions within it.

For example, the question might be:
"Why did you leave your last job?"

The little questions behind it are:

  • "Did you fail at that job and now you need to look for a new one?"
  • "Are you placing the blame on others or taking your part of responsibility?"
  • "Are you really interested in this role or are you just wanting to get out of the current one?"

You get the point.

Here's how to handle it:
Take your "sticky" question and pull it apart like that.

Then answer the questions individually first before reconstructing the information in a natural, honest, and coherent way.

You’ll feel much more confident about what you are saying and your answer will be clear as day.

Have fun interviewing and get in touch with me if you could use a boost for the next ones or check out the website for the upcoming workshop on salaries.

If you want to deep dive into your own difficult questions and simulate the interview, book yourself a 90-minute "boost-me" workshop tailored especially to you.
