Interview Answers Crash Course
Learn the winning way to answer nearly any interview question!
Don't walk into the interview unprepared.
Did you just get invited to interview for your dream job? Congratulations!
Now it's time to prepare!
That's why we've created Interview Answers Crash Course―a short and to-the-point primer on how to answer the most common interview questions. In less than 20 minutes you learn simple strategies for answering the toughest interview questions with ease.
In this course, you'll find:
- 5 video lessons, focusing on the most common and most difficult types of interview questions. You'll learn the hidden rationale behind each question, explain what the employer wants to hear, and share a winning strategy for crafting an answer.
- Worksheets, guidebooks, and other resources. I'll teach you the basics. But to master these skills you've got to practice. That's why I've included supplemental resources in every lesson, giving you the tools you need to become the best possible interviewee.
- Personal help from me and the Mac's List Team. If there's something you need extra help with, you can ask me questions in the comments section of each video. I respond within a day, and others who may have the same question can read our discussion!
Stop guessing, stop winging it!
The job interview is the make-or-break moment for landing a job. It is your one chance to show the employer you've got what it takes to solve their problems.
But despite the importance of the job interview, most people DON'T prepare for these meetings ahead of time. Instead, they decide to wing it:
- they don't plan out responses ahead of time
- they guess at what the interviewer wants to hear
- they shoot from the hip and hope for the best
Trust me... this approach doesn't work!
With practice, preparation and a little bit of insider knowledge, you give yourself a HUGE advantage over the competition.
In Interview Answer Crash Course, you'll learn the hidden meaning behind the most common interview questions and give you a strategy for crafting winning response. And while there are countless possible questions you'll hear in an interview, I'll help you break them down into a few basic categories, making them much easier to answer in the moment.

Why a crash course?
You never know when an employer will call you to schedule an in-person interview. But when the call comes, you need to be ready.
Employers want to increase the speed and shorten the duration of their hiring process. That means there's a premium on candidates who can interview ASAP.
If the interview is soon, you probably don't have time for a exhaustive, hours-long comprehensive course. So we prepared this short primer to cover the most important and vexing questions you're likely to get in an interview. If you can nail these few topics, you're already well ahead of the game.
In just 20-minutes you'll be ready to tackle that big interview.
