Dear Job Seeker,

Can you answer the following interview questions brilliantly?

– Tell me something about yourself.
– What do you want to accomplish on this position?
– Why did you leave your last job? (Why do you want to leave your present job?)
– How do you imagine a typical day in work?
– Tell me about a situation when you were under pressure. How did you handle the pressure?
– Would you mind working overtime?
– Would you mind accompanying your boss on business trips?
– How would you cope with an angry customer/client/guest?
– Do you have experience with preparing letters, reports, bulletins, handbooks?
– What are your salary expectations?
– Why should we hire you and not someone else?


It is not so easy, is it? Let me tell you something:

While studying at school, we are forced to learn many things we’ll never use in our lives. But when it comes to the real exams of adult life, such as getting a job, we quickly understand that school has not prepared us for passing these exams….

I have interviewed more than two thousand candidates for various positions, ranging from secretaries to managing directors. I have seen countless people fail in the interviews. But…

  • They failed, not because their qualification was not good enough.
  • They failed, not because they were stupid, or could not handle the job.


They failed, simply because they had no idea about how to sell themselves in an interview and what the interviewers wanted to hear from them.

How could they succeed? They were fresh graduates, employees, young people … in all good means. But they were not good in the art of acing a job interview. That wasn’t their field of expertise. Nobody told them what to do, what really matters in an interview, what questions they can expect and what answers they should choose. They failed.

That doesn’t have to be your story, however. I prepared a specialized eBook for secretary job applicants, that will show you how to answer all common secretary interview questions, impress your interviewers, and get a job.

See the sample from the eBook below:

1. Can you tell me something about yourself?

Hint: Often the very first question, it helps the HR managers to get a basic idea of your communication skills, motivation, and interests.

It is also an ice breaker, and a good answer should help you to feel more relaxed in an interview.

The interviewers do not ask about your education, experience, personal life, or anything else in particular—you can choose what you say to introduce yourself.

However, you should remember that your choice reflects what matters to you the most. In a job interview, it should be your education, working experience, and skills, simply things that are relevant for the employer.

You can mention one or two hobbies, or something from your personal life, just to show them that you are human, and have a life outside of work.

Considering that it is only the first question, try to answer briefly. Mention the most relevant things, speak with enthusiasm. If they want details, they will ask.


Sample answers

I am Mario, 25 years old, and I have just finished my Masters in Economy. I enjoy team work, and I am looking for my first job, ideally in a big company. I want to learn, and meet like-minded people in work. In my free time I like to run, read, and meet with friends. I try to have positive outlook of life, and take everything that comes my way as an opportunity to become a better person.

I am Michaela, and I have worked as a secretary before my maternity leave. Now, returning to work, I am looking for office manager position, or a similar job. I try my best to combine the role of a mother and the role of an employee, which is not always easy, but I enjoy the process. If I have some free time, I like to cook, read, and basically enjoy the time with my daughter.

My name is Ron, and I am a programmer. I love designing new games and I look for a job that will allow me to design them. I am creative, and I also like to draw. I have a family, my children attend college, and in my free time, which is typically only on weekends, I enjoy gardening and wandering in the nature. Though in my fifties, I still believe I have something to offer for my employer, and I constantly work on improving my programming skills.
