Common Interview Questions

  1. 1.

    What will you deliver to us in your first three months?

      The interviewer would like to see that you have put some thought into your action plan for when you start working for their company! Ways that you can make an impact right away could include getting a head start on your training, taking additional coursework, or making a 30, 60, 90-day onboarding plan for yourself.

      Whatever the job function for which you are interviewing, there is always room to wow the interviewer. Show them you have already put some thought into your success.

      If the hiring company has shared any expectations with you, or any pain points they are currently facing, this question is an excellent opportunity to address those factors.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I understand that your organization has seen a decrease in closed sales contracts over the last six months, and I plan to spring into action right away. In my first 30 days, I will complete my training faster than expected by spending extra time on the weekends and evenings learning internal processes. In the first 60 days, I will have reached out to all of my new clients and have a rapport built with them. After 90 days, I plan to be exceeding sales targets. I believe you'll be very impressed with my drive and steep learning curve."

      Rachelle's Answer
       for a Admin interview

      "You mentioned in our first meeting that you need someone to come in and re-organize all of your digital and physical files from the past five years. This organizing is a task I know I can do well and very quickly. I would like my 30 to 90-day impact to be in that area if this suits you."

      Rachelle's Answer
       for a Manager interview

      "For my first three months, I would like to get to know each of your staff members and become acquainted with their performance and recent results. From there, I can make an exciting action plan to motivate and encourage the team - especially the underperformers who are causing a strain on your company's bottom line."

      Rachelle's Answer
       for a Marketing interview

      "The first three months, while I train, the best thing I can do is study hard and soak in all of the mentorship available to me by your leadership team. You mentioned that you'd like to see your team have stronger skills in Facebook marketing, so I can certainly take additional coursework in that topic."

      Rachelle's Answer
       for a Retail interview

      "I believe the best thing that I can deliver to you in my first three months, and long after that, is being a reliable and engaged employee who encourages customers to try new products. I plan to be well-versed in your product's features and benefits right out of the gates, making me a top performer."

      Rachelle's Answer
       for a Sales interview

      "I have brought with me a 30, 60, and 90-day plan. May I show you? This plan outlines how I will exceed my targets in the first three months while getting to know my new clients, learning the territory, and gaining knowledge of your products. I am very excited to get started!"

      Rachelle's Answer
       for a Teacher interview

      "In the first few months of this new teaching role, I will put a significant focus on getting to know my students. It's most important to me that I make a connection with them quickly, as this will build the foundation for a fruitful year of learning. This connection will allow me to reach them where they are, resulting in more effective classroom time."

      "In my first few months on the job, I would like to focus on learning about my team and the products we support. I would like to sit down with the senior members of the team and talk to them about how I would like to rely on them and their product knowledge until I can get up to speed. After that, I would start to look for areas to make improvements."

      Rachelle's Answer

      More specifics will be essential for this answer. For instance, bringing in the challenges or pain points of the company and how you will meet these needs. Try to focus more on what you will be delivering vs. what you will be asking for from the senior members.

      "In my first three months, I’ll try to learn company culture, process, and adapt as fast as possible. Create, innovative, time-sensitive design solutions align with company perspectives and goals."

      Rachelle's Answer

      These are strong goals to have your sights on for the first 90 days. I recommend that instead of saying 'try,' you remove that word to show more confidence. I have offered a slight reword, below.

      "In my first three months, I'll learn company culture, processes, and adapt as fast as possible. I plan to create innovative, time-sensitive design solutions. I will also work hard to align with the company's perspectives and goals (such as...)."

      "In my first three months, I plan to be the fastest trainee you have ever brought onboard! I will spend extra time learning the ropes. You'll be very impressed with my steep learning curve. Also, I will get to know the colleagues and the other trainees to start good team chemistry between us."

      Rachelle's Answer

      This answer is energetic; however, hard to measure since you do not know the learning curve of past hires. Try adding something more concrete such as numbers, percentages, or the solving of a pain point mentioned by the interviewer.

      "You mentioned that this department had seen a higher turnover rate than usual. I will work hard to remedy this, conducting interviews with current employees to gauge what can be done to increase employee buy-in levels. Also, I will analyze client data, working to revive dormant accounts from the past 12 months."
