Your Last Boss

How would your boss from your last job describe you?

This can be a tricky question, especially if you left your job on a negative note. However, employers ask this question to learn about your personality.

What to include in your answer:

This is a good opportunity to talk about your work ethic and how your personality fit into your previous position. If you had a negative experience at your last job, share what you learned from the position and how you turned it into a positive experience.

So you have a job interview, and with the company's CEO, no less. While getting ready for any job interview takes a dedicated amount of work and effort, and comes with a fair amount of stress, getting ready for a C-level interview can be downright intimidating. This is the top brass, the one that (hopefully) has a vested interested in the long-term success of the company.

So what do you do? Research on the company would obviously be first on the list. The more you know, the better prepared you'll be. But, you also need to fully understand your past and your motivation for doing the work entailed in the job for which you are applying. Think long-term career goals. In this slideshow, Heather Huhman, writing for Glassdoor.com, has identified 10 tough questions you should give serious consideration and be prepared to answer before you speak to the CEO.
