Designed to help you identify
what you want from your career

The preference-based interview technique helps you identify what you want from a career. The interview questions are asked based on the theory, for example, that an accountant may rather be a marketing manager.

Knowing how to prepare for an interview of this nature is not necessary; it is best to give interview answers straight from the heart. Preference-based job interview questions are most often asked by recruitment firm consultants.

Preference-based interview questions may seem general and unrelated to the job opening. Here are some common interview questions you may encounter:

  • What do you see yourself doing in ten years?
  • Describe the kind of company you would like to work for.
  • Which industries most appeal to you?
  • Where would you like to live?
  • Why are you exploring other career options?
  • Who had the most significant impact on your life?
  • Describe some past mentors.
