TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
OUR COACH SAYS
Example #1
"Yes, I am very active in my search and have had multiple invitations to interview. Currently, I am in the second interview stage with one company and third interview stage with another."
Example #2
"I am currently exploring opportunities with other organizations or similar roles. At this time, I am not at the offer stage but will keep you apprised should that change."
Example #3
"I often have my eye on new opportunities, but at this time, your position was the only one that has genuinely caught my eye. Are you looking to find your candidate soon or is your timeline and interview process lengthy?"
Example #4
"I am interviewing with a couple of other companies, but I am not yet in the offer stage. Could you share with me your timeline?"
Example #5
"I am incredibly choosy about my next move, and I value your organization head and shoulders above all others. Right now, you are the only company for which I have applied. I am not looking for a new position because I have to, but because I believe the time is right for me to expand my horizons, which aligned perfectly with this current opening."
Example #6
"I do have an interview on the books next week as a third, final round interview. I much prefer the sound of your role; however. If you and I can successfully progress over the next week or so I can certainly consider delaying an offer."
Example #7
"At this time, I have two other schools who are engaging me in their process. With that said, I have been very clear with the interviewers to let them know that I am not looking to make a move until September. I am interested in each role for a unique reason and will not just take the first offer that comes my way. This decision will be one full of thought and discernment."
Example #8
"Yes, I am very active in my search and have had multiple invitations to interview. Currently, I am in the second interview stage with one company and third interview stage with another."

About Our Approach to Q&As
Our interview questions are created by writers, most of whom have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with the companies, careers or schools they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We strive to match our experts' background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
