Sample interview questions
Chapters 12 and 13 have introduced you to the importance of commercial awareness. Chapter 14 gives you some background on how businesses operate and the business environment. At interview, you will need to demonstrate that you are commercially aware, and that you are a 'good fit' for the type of firm that you wish to work for, that you can express yourself well, put forward an opinion of your own and a convincing argument.
Let's look at some example questions which link to content in the following chapters. The first example utilises the 'chunking down' technique explained in Chapter 12, whilst the questions relating to Chapters 13, 15 and 16 are based on questions that students have been asked in interviews, and so give you some idea of the type of questions you might face. Remember that very often there is no right or wrong answer.
