When you travel overseas, ever notice how native speakers welcome your efforts to communicate in their language? While no one may take you for a local, people appreciate when you show respect for their culture and point of view. Similarly, if you’re interviewing for a job these days, chances are good that you’ll be meeting with people in multiple areas of the company.

While they don’t expect you to be an expert in every area, employers do like it when you can “speak their language.” Of course you don’t have to learn all the buzzwords, but the more you can speak to their specific functional areas, the better chance you'll have of landing that job. Successful people always keep their audience in mind and tailor their communication to appeal to those they’re addressing. All you need to do in your interview answers is relate your experience to other areas in the company. Here are some approaches:

You did it! You reworked your resume, perfected your cover letter and landed the big interview. But walking through the door is only the beginning -- especially if the interviewer throws some hard-hitting questions your way and you don’t know how to respond. “The interview is an elimination process,” says Dr. Thomas J. Denham, a career counselor at Careers in Transition LLC in Colonie, New York. “The employer is trying to weed out those who are not the most worthy of the position.” Here, Denham offers some advice on how to answer five of the toughest interview questions:
1. What is your biggest weakness?

Questions like these, says Denham, are asked so that interviewees admit a weakness that justifies their being shown the door. He recommends responding with: “I have a tendency to say yes and get overcommitted.” Then follow that with an example of how you are working on prioritizing and setting personal limits. Never draw negative attention to yourself by stating a weakness that would lead an employer to think you are not the best person for the job, Denham says. “The focus of your interview should be on your strengths,” he says. read more

Behavioral interview questions are common and can be valuable since they help hiring managers learn how job seekers have handled real situations and challenges previously in their careers. There are a couple of steps candidates can take to prepare for these questions. First, anticipate the types of situations the employer may want to discuss. While every interview is obviously different, there typically are common inquiries; the hiring manager may want you to describe a time you solved a business problem or overcame a client objection, for example. Once you have an idea what you may be asked, identify specific experiences you want to share that demonstrate why you are the right fit for the job, and practice delivering your responses.

Tech has a reputation for tough interview questions, with Google being one of the most rumored companies to ask its potential employees complicated brainteasers and other tough -- or sometimes downright strange -- questions. While Google is alleged to have banned some of its tougher interview questions, the logic behind this interview practice remains at plenty of tech companies.

During the job interview, detailing how you work with others is important. The vast majority of companies value a collaborative work style. If you prefer working independently, the best way to answer this interview question is to say, “While I do my best work alone, I like input and feedback along the way.” This will communicate to the interviewer that you value the opinions of others, but prefer executing primarily on your own. If you enjoy working collaboratively, let the interviewer know that. Elaborate read more

The question we put before our panel this month is: "Being asked about one's own 'biggest weaknesses' in a job interview is considered (by many job seekers, at least) one of the worst interview questions. Do you ask candidates this, and how would you recommend candidates answer this question in a job interview without being phony?"

Be up front
There are times when I ask job candidates this question. It's not that I want to nitpick or make people feel uncomfortable, but rather I want to see in which areas they feel they need to improve and what they are doing about it. In order to advance professionally, we all need to be able to honestly identify not just our strengths but also our weaknesses and how we can upgrade in these areas.

For many job seekers an interview can seem too much like an inquisition. That's usually because they're doing all the answering and none of the asking.

"Somewhere in the interview you have a chance to impress the employer on your own terms and see if the job is a good fit for you," says Florida-based career coach and executive recruiter Jonathan Milligan. "And you absolutely should take this opportunity. By asking the right questions you can determine if the job is right for you and also show you're engaged and interested in the job."

Employment experts identify five key question areas where you can gain insight, put yourself in a good light and take some control in the interview.

Especially in times of high unemployment and financial distress, many candidates will apply for jobs for which they are, by conventional standards, overqualified. Does being overqualified mean you’ll be disqualified if you’re lucky enough to face an interviewer? Not if you handle the interview wisely.

First, calm yourself with the thought that it’s normal for candidates who are something more or less than a 100 percent match to be considered as finalists. “You never find the perfect candidate,” says Paul Falcone, an HR executive and author of 96 Great Interview Questions to Ask Before You Hire. “Everyone’s too heavy or too light in qualifications.”
