What are your favorite video games and why?

This isn’t the type of job interview question you would normal hear. If 10 years a go you ask me it i would be studding video games and wanting to make them a career. I wouldn’t have said yeah that what i want.

This is who you would have been asking that question to.

But know i am here and I’ve got a lot of question on how getting a job in a field like this works. Where as before i would just be worried about getting to the next save point. now i want to know what an employer is looking for, if they want to know what I’ve doing where I’ve done it or if they are wanting to know what I am like as an employee.

After some research i found that employers when hiring for a job want to see what the person they are hiring is like and not only basing their choice on what the parental employee has achieved. For past interview I can remember i know think why did they ask that or why did they want to know this. and i thought at the time what the point of it was. It is because the employers need to know about how you tic as a human being and if they can work with that.

Your answer might make you seen overconfident and cocky and they might not be looking for that in an employee. Employers will also ask questions to try get an interesting, quick witted response to look into your values, knowledge and intentions in a different, industry specific light and these could determine if they want to hire you.

Through personal years of personal experience there isn’t a tried and true method to net you that job. Also no way that anyone can prepare them self for every possible answer to every question. I found being open and honest, mean what you say and say what you mean is a good start to having employer is who you are as a person and its up to them if they think you can be an asset.

So being honest to who you are is one thing but I come from dirty industry where the interview process isn’t refined as a collar worker environment. So did research into how to better prepare your self of an interview.

I looked into articles on my specific industry to prepare for possible interview situation

Do some research into the company and potentially employee bios if available to see what they expect in an employee.

These videos highlights important elements to be aware of when parenting for a interview.

Taking what I know for past experience and applying these need concepts to this new industry is the next step in gaining potential employment. Having a CV that gets the attention of the based on work achievements, the interview is the face to face time to cement a good impression  of who you really are and what you can bring to the table. Be honest and true, lies won’t do you any favors.
