Make your answer honest but flexible. We suggests saying something such as, "I've really enjoyed learning about Department X and Department Y and feel I could be a strong contributor in either.

8. Tell me where do you see yourself in next five years?

Demonstrate how this position relates to your goals.

Employers ask this question when they aren't sure about someone's sales potential. We used this question as an interviewer; she would hold up a pen and say "Sell me this pen."

You need to acknowledge a weakness! The key is knowing your weakness and demonstrating how you are improving on it. For example, if you say I am a perfectionist and have difficulty delegating, you need to give an example of how you're working on the issue: I have been working on this issue and have begun to delegate to my staff as …. (e.g., leader of a club, editor of a paper), making sure they have clear directions from me. I've found that this approach provides the advantage of giving my staff more responsibility and freeing me up to work on other projects.

Interviewers expect a candidate for employment to discuss what they do while they are working in detail. Before you answer, consider the position you are applying for and how your current or past positions relate to it. The more you can connect your past experience with the job opening, the more successful you will be at answering the questions.

It should be obvious that it's not a good idea talk about non-work related activities that you do on company time, but, I've had applicants tell me how they are often late because they have to drive a child to school or like to take a long lunch break to work at the gym.
Keep your answers focused on work and show the interviewer that you're organized ("The first thing I do on Monday morning is check my voicemail and email, then I prioritize my activities for the week.") and efficient.
