Answering the interview question: What does your job involve currently on a daily basis? By Matthew Coppola


The employer has read your resume. They want to hear you talk about your experience. 

Even though the explanation on your resume is descriptive and understandable, when answering this question, you are best to concentrate on what the position your applying for is about and miss all the unnecessary extra information.

It would be unwise to respond by stating everything that is already mentioned on your resume. You want to concentrate mostly on the parts of your current job that relate to the position you are going for.

You don’t want the employer to become uninterested in you.

When talking about your responsibilities and what your job involves, make it interesting and expand on what you do and how the tasks you perform relate to the overall purpose of the position.

Show enthusiasm and interest in what you do. It’s best not to come across uninterested even if you really don’t like what you do for work. Your attitude to work no matter what kind of job it may be, can reflect on you as a person and as a potential employee.
