Resume-Based / Traditional Interviews

Resume-based questions are designed to see how well you can elaborate on and provide support for the information provided on your resume. Often, the recruiter will begin the interview by probing specific details on your resume (fact-checking) before moving on to a different type of question.

Know What to Expect

Traditional interview questions are generally designed to:

  • Assess enthusiasm. Your level of interest in the job or the organization is an important hiring criterion.
  • Examine your skills. The interviewer's goal is to ascertain your abilities and developmental areas.
  • Explore hypotheticals. Employers want a read on how you might handle workplace situations.
