-Go into an interview with an understanding of common organizational issues such as: deadlines, conflicts, communication between departments, communication from senior managers to staff, ineffective processes etc and offer solutions

-Nothing in the real world functions perfectly. Show that you understand problems can happen and you know how to solve problems. For example, even if you talk about how good you are with deadlines, be ready to talk about how to deal with a situation where a deadline couldn’t be met.

-Always use examples! When you talk about something, give examples of what you encountered in the past to support your answer. If you can’t, then come up with something hypothetical but examples are important!

-Prepare your MINDSET not how to answer certain questions. If you have an approach or a personality you can answer any question with ease.
