Interview Questions: About You


What would you do differently if you could relive the last 10 years of your life?

If the interviewer asks what you would do if you could relive your life, the interviewer is searching for a flaw in your interview. It is important to remember that the goal for the first few interviews is to get the next interview. This is in direct contrast to the goal of the interviewer which is to weed out as many applicants as possible. Here are a couple of possible responses.

Personal Response

Looking back, when I lost my father to Alzheimer's. If I'd known more about the disease, it could have helped us both through that difficult time.

Non-personal Response

I've learned from each experience I've had, so I wouldn't change anything.
