Culture and Vision

What do you value most about our culture and vision?

CEOs ask this question because they want to know if a candidate understands what their company is trying to accomplish. CEOs already know you're going to research the company. Therefore, by asking this question, you're able to explain what you truly think about the company.

What to include in your answer:

Focus your answer on what you've learned about the mission and values of the organization. You should also incorporate your personal values into your answer and how they will help you bring success to the organization.

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.
