Common Interview Questions


Whether you're preparing for your first post-military interview or your five hundredth, it is always helpful to think through your answers to some of the most common interview questions.

Your answers to these questions should relate to the job requirements, be concise yet thorough, and showcase what you bring to the position.

  • Tell me about yourself.
  • Why did you leave/are you leaving your last position (if you've been out of the military for a while)?
  • What has been your most rewarding position (military assignment)? Why?
  • What are your goals?
  • What are your strengths and weaknesses?
  • Why do you want to work for this company?
  • What has been your most significant achievement?
  • How would your last boss and colleagues describe you?
  • Why should we hire you?
  • What are your salary expectations?
  • What has been your best/least favorite position?
  • What major challenges have you faced and how did you resolve them?

Don't forget to bring a half dozen questions of your own that demonstrate your interest in the company and your knowledge of the industry.

Being prepared can help reduce your stress and help you perform better. Taking the time to prepare your responses and list your strengths, opportunities and skills can help you better demonstrate what you can bring to your potential employer. Many employers like to hire former military because of their training and discipline. Be sure to highlight how your military experience will benefit you and your new employer.
