This interview is usually conducted by the hiring manager or someone with the authority to hire. Since the person is often not a trained interviewer, unexpected questions may be asked in any sequence.

Most bosses are interested in:

  • Are you able to do the tasks required for this position?
  • Are you willing and motivated to solve the employer's problems?
  • Are you going to fit in? Are they comfortable in seeing you every day?

While this is an interview, it is also a selling situation. Be attentive and observe. Choose words/phrases the interviewer will respond to positively. Don't overwhelm the recruiter by reciting your skills and accomplishments. Find out exactly what needs to be done or what problems need to be solved, and choose accomplishments that fit the situation.
