Top 10 interview questions you need to prepare for.

In general, job interview questions fall into two categories: Traditional and behavioral.

Traditional questions help potential employers evaluate your skills and experience. Behavioral questions help employers predict how you will react in future situations based on your past behavior.

To ace your next job interview, you need to be able to answer both types of questions in a calm, collected and confident manner. And to do that, you need to rehearse your answers in advance.
