During the Interview: The Questions
Know the question behind the question. Ultimately, every question boils down to, "Why should we hire you?" Be sure you answer this question completely to show that not only are you qualified for the job, but that you’re the best candidate. Think of the positive aspects of your ADD brain and use specific examples to help you make your case, "When I was with ABC Company, I creatively used my familiarity with 'X' to boost profit margins by 28%."
Tell the truth. If you haven't done something the job requires, but believe you can, say why. Be creative – and don’t lie. If someone asks if you know how to do 'X,' you can say, "I'm a quick learner, and I have experience doing 'Y' and 'Z,' which are similar."(Avoid using the word 'No'.)
Be smart about money questions. Attempt to postpone money discussions until you have a better understanding of the scope of responsibilities of the job, and they have a better idea of your abilities and qualifications.
Ask questions. Prepare questions in advance, and add others during the interview. You have the right - and obligation - to know as much as possible about the company, department, job, your manager and co-workers.
